New Orleans (1-0) @ Las Vegas (1-0)
Line : NO (-6)
Matt: New Orleans’ Defense looked pretty good last week vs Old Man Tom Brady, intercepting him twice (including a pick-six), while holding Tampa running backs to only 3.3 yards per rush. That 3.3 number bodes well for New Orleans, because Las Voakland’s best offensive player is Josh Jacobs, professional running back. If New Orleans can limit Jacobs’ effectiveness and keep the ball out of Vegas’ hands, they should pull out the victory vs an exciting but inferior Las Vegas team.
Incidentally, I am up 15 points in fantasy football going into tonight, and playing Josh Jacobs, so he will no doubt go off for at least a healthy 16 this evening.
Saints go to 2-0, Vegas falls to a still-respectable 1-1.
Matt’s Pick: New Orleans to win and cover -6, Josh Jacobs over 70 yards and a TD
Fleet: I kind of want to pick tha Raid-ahs again. But I was wrong with my Atlanta and Carolina picks, so I will pick the team with the better QB here.
Fleet’s Pick: New Orleans
