Green Bay Packers (2-0) at New Orleans Saints (1-1)

*3 Star Play on Saints* The Green Bay Packers have been able to feast on bad teams and specifically really bad defenses so far this year. Aaron Rodgers took advantage of a terrible Vikings defense and an awful Lions defense (with a banged up secondary) to put up big numbers. Things will get tougher against a good Saints defense.
New Orleans didn't look good on defense on Monday night, but I do still believe this is a quality defense. The secondary is the strength of the team. Devante Adams is now listed as doubtful for the Packers. If he does play he will be far less than 100 percent. The Packers don't have much depth at all at wide receivers.
The Saints are much better at home than on the road. New Orleans is a whopping 28-10 ATS in their last 38 home games vs. a team with a winning record.
The Packers run defense is a weakness, and I think Kamara can do quite a bit of damage here for the Saints.
Perception of the Packers is too high now. I'll back the home team laying the short number.
Take New Orleans.
