The New Orleans Saints will try to become the first team in NFL history to reel off eight straight wins after an 0-2 start when they host the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Saints opened as 7.5-point favourites and were quickly moved up to 9-point chalk on the Sports Interaction NFL odds board. The total has been set at 51.

New Orleans improved to 7-2 straight up and against the spread on the season with its Week 10 demolishing of the Buffalo Bills. The 47-10 result was the first Saints game to go over the total since Week 6.

The Redskins fell to 4-5 straight up and 3-6 against the spread following their 38-30 home loss against the Minnesota Vikings. It was the fifth over in Washington’s last six games.

Washington Redskins

Washington’s defense can’t come up with big stops when the team needs it most. The Redskins lead the league in most points surrendered in the final two minutes of the second and fourth quarters with 78 points including 14 against Minnesota on Sunday.

Redskins starting running back Rob Kelley will be out for at least the next few weeks with a high ankle sprain – meaning the club with have to rely on its fourth round pick in last year’s draft, Samaje Perine, on first and second down. Chris Thompson will continue to function as Washington’s third down back.

New Orleans Saints

There have been some impressive wins this season for the New Orleans Saints but maybe none better than Sunday’s win against the Bills. It doesn’t matter that the victory came against a sliding team – the only thing that matters are the numbers in the rushing column on the stat sheet: Saints 298, Bills 69.

New Orleans marched into the end zone six times and set a new club record for most rushing touchdowns in a game in the process. Head coach Sean Payton made the decision to dedicate a larger percentage of the offensive plays to the ground game after the Week 2 loss at home to the New England Patriots. Since then only two other teams have the run ball more often and only one has accumulated more rushing yards than the Saints.
