Posted by: Charlie Smith
Without question, Drew Brees ranks amongst one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. After all, how many NFL quarterbacks can you name who are currently completing 80% of their passes? But even though Brees is one of the best in the league, the New Orleans Saints struggle to consistently find success, mostly because of their lackluster defense. So, will Brees be enough to propel the club to victory in this online NFL betting weekend’s New Orleans Saints vs. New York Giants NFC matchup? Let’s check on the legal betting odds to get a better idea.

Online NFL Betting Odds:
New Orleans Saints
The Saints march into this weekend’s action sporting a 2-1 record that ranks them 2nd in the division. Right now the NFC South is led by the 2-1 Bucs, who have beaten New Orleans already this season. That loss came in Week 1 at home 48-40 for New Orleans. Nevertheless, the franchise was able to bounce right back winning back to back games. The most important of which was this past weekend’s 43-37 blowout victory over Atlanta. That matchup delved into a blowout because New Orleans’ defense isn’t that elite. Granted, the Falcons have a pretty terrific passing attack. But even though Eli Manning is failing to live up, the Giants still have OBJ. Considering how weak the Saints are against the pass, we should expect to see Beckham having a big day this weekend. But will it be big enough to topple the Saints? Ultimately that’s up to Brees and his stacked offense.
Players to Watch: Drew Brees (1,078 passing yards, 8 TD, 0 INT), Alvin Kamara (141 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Michael Thomas (398 receiving yards, 3 TD, 38 REC).
New York Giants
The Giants tumble into this weekend’s action sporting a 1-2 record that ranks them as one of the worst teams in the NFC East. Right now the division is heralded by the Eagles and Washington, both of whom are 2-1 this year. With that in mind, it’s clear New York can make a push for the lead in the division. However, considering what we’ve seen out of New York thus far, no online NFL betting player is expecting them to bridge that gap. On the contrary, they’re anticipating that New York gets one of next year’s top draft picks. The biggest issue facing New York is a stuttering offense that’s only putting up 18.3 per game. Considering that New Orleans puts up 34.7 per outing, it’s clear New York is going to have a long game this Sunday. The largest fault in New York’s offense has to be the offensive line, which seems incapable of covering anybody. The Saints currently have 6 sacks but we can expect that number to go up quite a bit this weekend.
Players to Watch: Eli Manning (800 passing yards, 3 TD, 1 INT), Saquon Barkley (216 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Odell Beckham Jr. (271 receiving yards, 0 TD, 24 REC).
