Wrong Team Favored?
The Saints are a hard team to figure out. They start the season with a resounding win over the Packers only to be crushed in the next game against the Panthers. When a team struggles to find consistency early, it may be difficult to post odds. This week, New Orleans travels to New England to play the Patriots. The Patriots recently defeated the Jets, but that is not that impressive, considering that the Jets are rebuilding.
Vegas had no other choice, but to label the Patriots a (-3) point favorite. However, this point spread is based more on the Patriots past performance than the current status. Mac Jones is still a rookie and Sean Payton will have the Saints ready to play after a humiliating loss. The value at this point is on the Saints according to the early lines.
