New Orleans is 3-2 against the spread this season while Seattle is 3-3 although they are 1-0 ATS without Russell Wilson under center.
Monday night features a battle of middling teams. Seattle has lost four of their past five games and is in danger of becoming completely irrelevant in the 2021-22 season.
At home, can they stay afloat while Wilson works his way back from injury?
Outside of their first game against Green Bay, the New Orleans Saints haven’t impressed. After beating Green Bay by 35 on opening day, the Saints have scored ONE (yes, one) more point than they’ve allowed. And let’s not pretend the teams they’ve played are world beaters. Carolina, NY Giants, Washington, and New England are a combined 10-18 this season. For the record, New Orleans went 2-2.
So why are the Saints favored by 4 on the road? It’s Geno Smith. Monday is game two of the Geno Smith experiment. Simply put, he hasn’t been good really ever during his nine-year career.
For me, I’m leaning toward taking Seattle and the points, but I’m not sure the edge is enough to fire. We need to win this bet about 52.5% of the time to break even and that’s pretty much where I see it.
There is one bet we’re making today and that involves Alvin Kamara.
Kamara is the unquestioned leader in the backfield for New Orleans and he’s getting more carries than he’s gotten in recent memory which brings us to his rushing total.
It’s currently 92.5. Kamara has only surpassed that total three times over his past 22 games. For what it’s worth, he’s getting more carries and if you think New Orleans wins a close-ish affair, the game script should favor him running the ball.
For me, 92.5 seems a bit steep. Seattle’s secondary is mediocre at best. Despite playing against some of the lesser QBs in the league (Ben Roethlisberger, Jimmy Garoppolo, Carson Wentz on opening day), the underlying stats don’t paint a good picture.
Sean Payton will look to exploit Seattle’s secondary and should dial up some deep throws for Jameis Winston. Couple this with Seattle’s front seven being good against the run (per PFF) and I’m dubious that Alvin Kamara rushes for that many yards.
UNDER 92.5 Rushing yards for Alvin Kamara
