The Saints are playing phenomenal football this season and come into this contest riding a six-game winning streak that includes their emphatic 30-10 beatdown over NFC South rival Tampa Bay last weekend. Not only are the Saints playing their usual brand of high-powered offense by averaging 27.6 points per game (6th), but this season, New Orleans is playing very well on the defensive side of the ball by limiting the opposition to just 19.4 points per game to rank 10th in points allowed.
Drew Brees continues his march toward the Hall of Fame by completing an incendiary 71.6 percent of his passes for 2,214 yards with 13 touchdowns and just four interceptions and now New Orleans has some elite defensive players with guys like defensive lineman Cameron Jordan (7 sacks) and clearly gifted rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
The Bills have also been very surprising this season, even though they were on the wrong end of a humbling 34-21 beatdown at the hands of the New York Jets last weekend. Buffalo has won four of their last six games coming into this contest under first-year head coach Sean McDermott while ranking a stellar fifth in points allowed (18.6 ppg). The Bills could use a bit more offense as they average just 21.8 points per game (16th), but still, they’ve been surprising to say the least this season.
While New Orleans looks fantastic right now and a convincing 60 percent of the betting public like them to win and cover the spread as nearly field goal road favorites, I’m ‘going the other way’ with my pick on this Week 10 matchup and backing Buffalo to get the home upset with a fantastic defensive effort and a better offensive performance from Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy.
While the Saints have gone 12-2 ATS in their last 14 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in November, the Bills are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six home games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. I believe Buffalo’s outstanding defense, combined with a bit of desperation, will help them get the outright win at home in this one!
Pick: Buffalo +2.5
