The fact of the matter is that people should be betting on the Saints in this situation. It just makes too much sense not to do it. New Orleans is out of the blocks on fire at 2-0, and it is coming off of a bad offensive game in which Mother Nature could be blamed against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Why on earth people are trying to back an Arizona team that has played two close games against two teams that didn’t get into the playoffs last year is beyond us. Look, we think that QB Carson Palmer and Head Coach Bruce Arians makes this team a lot better than it was last year, but this is still the worst team in the NFC West and one of the worst teams in the conference as well, and coming to the East Coast to take on the Saints in what will feel like a 10:00 AM start time isn’t going to be a good thing.
We’re really just looking at the offensive numbers here to make up our mind for us. The Saints are going to throw ball all over the field, and if the production for TE Jared Cook was any indication when the Cards played against the St. Louis Rams, we can only imagine what TE Jimmy Graham and RB Darren Sproles are going to do when they get some space to work with. In our eyes, this one is a romp in favor of the hosts, as the Saints go marching to another relatively easy ‘W’.
