Washington Vs New Orleans Spread & ATS Pick
Washington (4-5) at New Orleans (7-2)
When: November 19, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Spread: New Orleans -7.5
Why Bet Washington…
Washington looked fantastic offensively last weekend as they put a whopping 30 points on the board against a Minnesota Vikings defense that ranks fifth in points allowed this season. Unfortunately, they looked awful defensively in allowing Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum to throw four TD passes in the high-scoring loss.
Of course, giving up 38 points to a Vikings team with a modest offense by any standard doesn’t bode well as Washington faces Drew Brees and a Saints team that now has both, a rushing attack and blossoming defense to go along with their future Hall of Fame quarterback.
Why Bet New Orleans…
New Orleans has looked absolutely phenomenal in winning seven straight while holding the opposition to 17 points or less six times and allowing 13 points or less four times. The Saints completely man-handled Buffalo in their 47-10 Week 10 blowout win as Mark Ingram rushed for 131 yards and three touchdowns and fellow backs Alvin Kamura and Trey Edmunds added 106 rushing yards and 48 yards respectively and addition rushing touchdowns.
Washington Vs New Orleans ATS Pick
Washington has gone 5-0 ATS in their last five meetings against New Orleans. Bad news? Washington has also gone a discouraging 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against their NFC counterparts and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Conversely, Drew Brees and the Saints have posted a blistering 9-1 ATS mark in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record while also going an incendiary 12-2 ATS in their last 14 games following a straight up win, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Saints win and narrowly cover the Week 11 NFL spread!
