New Orleans Saints vs. Detroit Lions NFL Betting Picks
Just when you thought NOLA’d turned a corner defensively to start the season, the Saints fall back on old habits. For example, they allow 37 points to the Packers. Conversely, Detroit displayed some defensive grit, but there’s still a long way to go for them on the defensive front. Instead of choosing a side, let’s just side with the total. Both offensives will show up. We could be in for a 34-30 type game. Take the over.
