New Orleans vs Los Angeles Rams (5:15pm)
After suffering a three-game losing streak, the Saints have staged a remarkable comeback, clinching consecutive victories to join Tampa Bay at the summit of the NFC South. The team's defense has been exceptional, conceding a mere six points in each of the last two games and maintaining an average of just 248 total yards per game. Their defensive prowess extends to surrendering 311.9 total yards per game and 185.4 passing yards per game, both ranking sixth-best in the league. Notably, the Saints boast 14 interceptions, tying them for the fifth-highest in the league, and have recorded 30 sacks, tied for the fifth-fewest.
Both the Saints and the Rams find themselves deeply immersed in the playoff race. The Rams are playing at their peak, while New Orleans secured consecutive victories against teams struggling in the league. Despite facing opponents of lower standing, the Saints can rely on their above-average secondary, which has held strong by not allowing a touchdown in the past two weeks.
Additionally, historical trends indicate that teams considered primetime divisional favorites, coming off two or more consecutive against-the-spread (ATS) wins, are 0-14 ATS when the line is less than five. Everything is pointing towards a Saints cover as I only have the Rams winning by a field goal. Take the Saints +4!
