The Eagles are fresh off a fourth straight loss, this time to the Green Bay Packers, and they might be starting a new quarterback under center. This should be an easy win for the Saints, right?

NFL Week 14 Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The under has been on fire lately as it is 5-0 in the Saints last five games overall, 4-0 in their last four games when coming off an ATS win in the game prior and 4-0 in their past four games when coming in as the favorite. They are also 5-0 ATS in their past five games overall as well as 7-0 ATS in their past seven games when playing on the road against teams with a losing home record.

The under has been good for the Eagles as well. It is 6-0 in their last six games overall and 5-0 in their past games when giving up more than 350 total yards in the game prior. Philadelphia is 4-1 ATS in their past five games following an ATS loss and 5-2 in their last seven games when coming into the matchup as the home underdog.

New Orleans Saints

The Saints have been really good this season, even without their future Hall of Famer Drew Brees leading the charge. This offense has flowed better than many expected under Taysom Hill as they sit at 3-0 in games without Brees. Much of that is due to their outstanding defense that is currently ranked first in the league. They are a well-rounded squad with a great coaching staff that has this team in peak form right now.

On the other side of the field will be an Eagles team that can’t seem to do anything right. They’ve been a hot mess on offense and they might end up starting a rookie quarterback in this scenario. That would be great news for a defense that’s been suffocating opponents. The Saints have allowed a total of 40 points in their last five games combined.

Philadelphia Eagles

Quarterback Carson Wentz has struggled mightily this season but a lot of that can be blamed on their lack of an offensive line (injuries) and a severe lack of weapons for Wentz to dish the ball out to. Either way, this offense has done close to nothing all season long behind Wentz and their last game was the final straw. After Wentz compiled just 79 yards passing in the first half, rookie Jalen Hurts took over towards the end of their loss to the Green Bay Packers. He made some good and bad throws in what was essentially a pressure-less situation. The Eagles were already losing, so he couldn’t really do much wrong. This week, things change – if he gets the nod – as he’ll now have to lead the team.

Head coach Doug Pederson refused to name a starter for this upcoming game but this is a bad spot either way. Wentz has been brutal this year, leading the league in interceptions, while the other option is starting a rookie against a ferocious defense. Neither option looks great for the Eagles.
