Eagles Saints Betting Tips – Eagles Rapidly Becoming Its Own Worst Enemy
Philadelphia Eagles @ New Orleans Saints – Monday November 5, 2012 8:30PM EST
If you bet on football, then you have seen a team implode before. It all starts with very public pressure being put on the coach to suddenly develop a winning team from a roster that has not shown the ability to win in the past. From there, it becomes an obsession within the media that the team is not winning and questions start to get asked that coaches and players do not want to answer. Before you know it, the fans and the media are dictating roster moves that the head coach insists have nothing to do with public sentiment. It is not long before the coach is fired and the team is in chaos. This is the path that the Philadelphia Eagles is on, and it is something the team created on its own.
The football betting experts could say that the New Orleans Saints created its own issues when it decided to defy NFL instructions to dismantle its bounty program years ago. But the Saints has decided to not fall back on the obvious excuse that the NFL has given the team for its poor performance. Quarterback Drew Brees and the rest of the Saints have stepped up and become accountable for their play this season. With the return of assistant coach Joe Vitt from his six-game suspension, we could see a very different New Orleans Saints team take the field in this must-win game for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Why the Eagles Will Win
The Eagles will try to win this game because it has to. If the Eagles lose this game, fans can expect to see quarterback Michael Vick benched and the heat get turned up considerably on head coach Andy Reid. It is rare to see an NFL team respond positively to the kind of pressure that the Eagles have created for itself, but Philadelphia does have one last chance to turn its season around.
Why the Saints Will Win
You could see it in the eyes of Drew Brees and the other Saints as New Orleans pulled off its week seven win over the Buccaneers. Even though the best online betting sites watched the Broncos destroy the Saints in week eight, you could still see the look of anticipation on the players’ faces. New Orleans is trying desperately to pull together its season and the return of Vitt can represent a potential shift in New Orleans that could help the team salvage the year.
The Bottom Line
The Eagles have been a mess ever since it brought it all of those high profile free agents two years ago. Andy Reid has been bulletproof in Philadelphia for a long time, but his inability to utilize the talent he has been given could cost him his job this time. The Saints just want to win one for Joe and get back to winning football games.
Pick: New Orleans Saints
