New Orleans Saints at New England Patriots: 9/26/21 NFL Picks and Predictions

Click Here for the Latest Odds

The New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots face off on Sunday in a Week 3 NFL showdown at Gillette Stadium. These two teams last faced off in 2017 and the Patriots won that game 36-20. 

The New Orleans Saints have played two games and there sill seems to be so many questions about this team. After the first game against the Green Bay Packers, the Saints looked like a Super Bowl contender, but after the last game against the Carolina Panthers, they look like a team who might not win another game. Jameis Winston struggled in the last game completing 11 of his 22 passes for 111 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. Winston’s biggest knock has been his inconsistency, and it is something that is clearly going to be a big issue again this year. 

On the other side of this matchup is the New England Patriots who lost their first game of the year against the Miami Dolphins by a point, but they bounced back in the last game against the Jets winning 25-6. The Patriots had four interceptions in the last game, and it’s going to be important they continue to create turnovers. Quarterback Mac Jones have shown some flashes of being a really good quarterback and in the last game he threw for 186 yards. Running back Damien Harris had 16 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown. 

New Orleans is 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games overall. The Patriots are 1-7-1 against the spread in their last nine games following an against the spread loss. The under is 5-1 in the Saints last six road games. The under is 6-1 in the Patriots last seven home games. 

The big problem in this game is I don’t really trust either of the quarterbacks. I have been impressed with the Patriots defense, and they are going to make life tough on Winston. Look for the Patriots to use those turnovers to cruise to the victory. Back the Patriots against the spread. I really don't expect the Patriots to run up the score though, and the under will cash. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
