Chiefs Saints Betting Predictions – Winless Saints Look To Break Out Of Slow Start Versus Winless Chiefs This Sunday

Posted by Tony Bryant on 9/19/2012 6:37:06 PM

The New Orleans Saints have confronted adversity and shown their resilience in the past. Rebounding from a 0-2 start to the 2012 regular season without their head coach is their toughest test yet. The Saints will look to bounce back from a couple of tough losses to open their season when they host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, and there is a lot of work to be done. The New Orleans’ defense has allowed an average of 37.5 points through its first two games, and unless it can bring that sports betting number down it won’t matter what Drew Brees and the offense do.

The Saints will get their best opportunity of the season against an injury plagued Kansas City team that is also winless through the first two weeks of the regular season. The Chiefs have the second-worst point differential in the NFL following back-to-back losses to the Atlanta Falcons and Buffalo Bills, and this will be their second road game in as many weeks.

The Chiefs have the excuse of a ton of injuries to key players on both sides of the ball, although the remaining starters have not done nearly enough with the opportunities they have been given. Running back Jamaal Charles has just 90 rushing yards and no touchdowns to show for the first two weeks, and Kansas City fans are hoping a game against one of the league’s worst run defenses will help light a spark underneath him. The Chiefs don’t have the weapons on defense to slow down the powerful New Orleans offense, so they will need Charles, Matt Cassell, and Dwayne Bowe to put up some points and keep pace.

Whether or not they can be the third team in a row to surpass the 30-point mark against this Saints’ defense will be a story in itself, as this group has given up far too many big plays under new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. While the defense has been far from great, more will be expected of Brees and the offense after the franchise quarterback and leader tossed two key interceptions in each of the team’s first two losses. New Orleans has a full compliment of some of the best running backs in the NFL, and it will be interesting to see how they use Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, and Mark Ingram in a must-win online sportsbook game.

The biggest mistakes that online players can make is overvaluing the influence of emotion in a game, as it simply does not translate on the score sheet that this game will mean more to one team than the other. The Saints are too talented to drop to 0-3 even without Payton on the sidelines, but don’t expect a team that has given up an average of 37.5 points through consecutive losses to all of a sudden win by 9 against a Chiefs’ team that is equally as desperate to earn a win.
