The New Orleans Saints have been covering machines on the road over the years, but they're just not a team I have confidence in from week to week. The Saints have underachieved this season and I don't trust their offense to produce against quality teams. The Philadelphia Eagles win and cover numbers, especially at home. We're not being asked to lay a lot. Give me the Eagles by a touchdown.
