The 39-year-old quarterback is enjoying one of his finest seasons of his 18-year NFL career and his play is a big part of the reason the Saints sit atop the NFC South.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

New Orleans opened as a 2.5-point underdog against the Ravens at Sports Interaction with a 50-point total. The Over/Under line has dropped a half point to 49.5 while the spread is sticking with Baltimore giving 2.5 points.

The Saints entered the 2018 campaign as top contenders in the NFC but they lost favour with many bettors after they lost outright to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1 as 10-point chalk. They won four games in a row since that opening week blunder and have scored at least 33 points in each of their last three contests.

New Orleans is 4-1 straight up and 3-2 against the spread heading into its Week 7 showdown with the Ravens. The Saints enjoyed an off week last weekend and they’re 9-1 ATS in their last 10 matchups coming off a bye week.

Baltimore shutout Tennessee 21-0 on Sunday and improved to 4-2 SU and ATS on the season. The Under is a perfect 4-0 in the Ravens’ last four games. Baltimore has fallen short of the Over/Under line by a combined 46 points over the last two weeks.

Nearly 90 percent of Sports Interaction bettors like the Saints to cover as 2.5-point road underdogs while 87 percent expect the game to go Over the 49.5-point total.

New Orleans Saints

Brees is tops in the NFL this season in QB rating (122.3) and completion percentage (77.9), and he’s yet to throw an interception after the first six weeks of the campaign. He passed legendary signal callers Brett Favre and Peyton Manning in career pass completions and all-time passing yardage in his last outing, and he will become just the third QB in NFL history to beat every one of the 32 teams if the Saints get the best of the Ravens.

Baltimore Ravens

The defence has its bite back in 2018 under first-year coordinator Don Martindale. The Ravens are first in the league in fewest points and fewest yards allowed per game. Baltimore sacked Marcus Mariota 11 times last weekend and the squad is first in the NFL in quarterback take downs with 26 in six games.
