NEW ORLEANS SAINTS @ WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM

Two .500 teams meet in the capital as the Saints travel to Washington to take on Taylor Heinicke and the Football Team. 

Washington picked up a win last week against the Falcons to get back on track after being handily beaten by Buffalo in Week 3. Taylor Heinicke has played well in Ryan Fitzpatrick’s absence, linking up with stud WR Terry McLaurin last week to the tune of 123 yards and 2TDs add Antonio Gibson to the mix and, Washington has the guys on offense to put points on the board. On defense it’s not great, this unit was expected to be one of the NFL’s best but as of yet, we haven’t seen it. The aforementioned Gibson has at least 12 rush attempts in each game so far in 2021, which makes his U/O 11.5 rush attempts line a questionable one to me, I’ll be taking the over there. 

New Orleans was beaten in OT by a depleted Giants side last week and this team is looking a million miles away from the 12-4 NFC South winning team of last year. Part of that of course is the change at QB, Jameis Winston appears to be on a short leashed game-manager role, he’s yet to throw more than 23 times in a game through four weeks, and with the bookies offering us U/O 25.5 pass attempts, I’m going to take the under there. 

Spread: Washington +2.5

Total Match Points line: U/O 43.5

Game Prediction: Saints 23-21 WFT

Best Bet: Antonio Gibson over 11.5 rushing attempts & Jameis Winston under 25.5 passing attempts @ 3/1 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
