Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints

Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, LA

When: Sunday, January 13, 4:40 PM. ET.

The New Orleans Saints will be trying to get their second win over the Philadelphia Eagles this season when they meet in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs on Sunday afternoon.

Eagles Trying To Avenge Regular Season Loss

The Eagles were embarrassed by the Saints during the regular season, losing on the road to the NFC South champions 48-7. They will try to avenge the loss and pick up their fifth consecutive win when they face the Saints on Sunday.

Philadelphia struggled offensively during the regular season because their offense was one-dimensional after losing their starting running back to a season-ending injury. The team averaged 22.9 points per game during the regular season.

Carson Wentz led the team in passing during the regular season, but his season was cut short again, this time by a back injury. Nick Foles filled in for Wentz at the beginning of the season and at the end, completing 72.3 percent of his passes for 1,413 yards, seven touchdowns, and four interceptions.

Josh Adams led the team in rushing with 511 yards and three touchdowns, while Zach Ertz led the team in receiving with 116 catches for 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns.

The Eagles played well defensively, giving up 21.8 points per game. They have been great in their last two games, giving up 7.5 points per game. They will need to continue playing well to give themselves a chance to beat the Saints.

Saints Trying To Avoid Upset

The Saints earned the top seed in the NFC thanks to a great regular season. With the team not having to leave the Superdome until the Super Bowl, they will be trying to avoid an upset loss to the Eagles, who are trying to make it back to the NFC Championship Game for the second year in a row.

New Orleans was one of the best offensive teams in the league this season, averaging 31.5 points per game. They were very balanced offensively, throwing for 252.6 yards per game and rushing for 126.6 yards per game.

Drew Brees had another impressive season, completing 74.4 percent of his passes for 3,992 yards, 32 touchdowns, and five interceptions.

Alvin Kamara led the team in rushing with 883 yards and 14 touchdowns, while adding 709 receiving yards and four touchdowns. Michael Thomas led the team in receiving with 125 catches for 1,405 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Saints also played well on the defensive end, holding opponents to 22.1 points per game. They gave up 30.5 points per game in their last two games and will need to play better if they want to beat the Eagles for the second time.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Saints were great against the spread during the regular season but they struggled down the stretch, losing four of their last five games. The Eagles have played well against the spread, winning their last four games and four of their last five games against teams with winning records.

Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles +8

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone over in six of Philadelphia’s last seven games after allowing over 350 total yards in their previous game and in 22 of the team’s last 30 road games. The total has also gone over in New Orleans’ last six playoff games and in 10 of the team’s last 14 playoff games.

Prediction: Over 50.5

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

The Saints had the third-best offense in the league during the regular season, averaging 31.5 points per game. But, they will fail to score more than 29.5 points in this game because their offense averaged 19 points per game in their last three games and the Eagles defense has been playing well over their last three games, holding opponents to 15 points per game.

Prediction: Saints – Total Points Under 29.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Eagles will win the first half of this game because they have outplayed the Saints in the first half of their last three games, averaging 8.7 points per game while the Saints average 7.7 points per game. The Eagles have also played better on the defensive end, holding opponents to 7.3 points per game while the Saints are giving up 14.7 points per game.

Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles +5.5

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Saints and Eagles are averaging 16.4 points per game in the first half of their last three games and they will fall short of the first half total in this game if they maintain their current scoring pace.

Prediction: Under 24.5

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Saints are capable of putting up a lot of points, especially at home. However, neither team will score in the first six minutes of this game because the Eagles defense will frustrate Drew Brees and New Orleans’ offense, while Philadelphia’s offense also struggles against the Saints’ defense, which played great in the second half of the season.

Prediction: Will Either Team Score in the First 6 Minutes of the Game? No -120
