Ruffolo's MONDAY NIGHT MAYHEM NFL SIDE
New Orleans Saints (2-2) vs Los Angeles Chargers (1-3)

The Saints being favored at home makes sense as it’s also Justin Herbert’s primetime debut, but the Chargers have shown a lot of fight despite a 1-3 record, and with Michael Thomas out once again for the Saints, I’m concerned that it’s turning the Saints into somewhat of a one dimensional offense that’s almost Alvin Kamara or bust. With that said, the Chargers are missing a ton of guys on defense like Derwin James, Chris Harris and Melvin Ingram, and even without Thomas, the Saints have averaged 30.8 points per game. I think the Saints are capable of winning this one by a touchdown at home so I’ll lay the points with the Saints as my premium pick for this game.
