Saints Patriots Betting– Depth, Revenge Spark Pats To Win Over Champs

Online betting players watched New Orleans roll to the Super Bowl last year, and one of those victories was a rout of New England at home.  The Patriots welcome the Super Bowl champs to town to kick off the preseason, and even though it’s only preseason, the memories of that game, along with their superior depth, will inspire the Patriots to a win.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Thursday, August 12, 7:30 PM ET
  • Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA
  • Pick: Patriots 

What’s On The Line

The defending Super Bowl champions from New Orleans will take on the team of the first decade of the 2000s, the Patriots, and New England will surely remember the 38-17 beating they took on Monday Night Football in New Orleans last year.  Even though this game will largely be played by guys looking for roster spots, revenge will play a factor here.

Offensive Matchups: Saints Patriots Betting

It’s unlikely that you’ll see many of the players that made up the best offense in the league and the No.1 reason that the Saints claimed their first Super Bowl win, because no one wants to see Drew Brees tear his knee up in a preseason game.  The quarterback role will be split by rookie Sean Canfield and Chase Daniel, who is very similar to Brees and should get a long look this preseason.  The big (literally) rookie to watch is tackle Charles Brown, who the Saints took with the 64th pick.  Brown will look to push Jermon Bushrod at the left-tackle position, which is crucial in the Saints’ timing offense.

The Patriots will probably sit the likes of Tom Brady, Randy Moss and company, but with the injury to Wes Welker last year, New England may be ready to go a bit bigger.  Tight ends Rob Gronkowski (second round) and Aaron Hernandez (fourth round) could be ones to watch if the Patriots go to a two-TE set, and Gronkowski in particular has a lot to prove as he missed all of last year with a back injury and will be looking to repay the Patriots for their faith.  Look for Brian Hoyer to battle rookie Zac Robinson for playing time in this game.

Betting Edge:  Patriots

Defensive Matchups: Saints Patriots Betting

NFL betting players know that the Saints were masters at creating turnovers last year, as their 39 takeaways put them second in the NFC, but they were 25th in defense overall, and there’s no way they can win another Super Bowl with a unit like that.  They had problems against the pass in particular, and they hope rookie cornerback Patrick Robinson can help in that respect.  They hope he fares better than Malcolm Jenkins, who the Saints drafted a couple of years ago, and they now may move him from corner to safety to make room for Robinson.
The Patriots’ defense wasn’t as stout as we’re used to seeing, but they had a young squad in 2009 who will look to grow this year.  They also took a corner with their first pick, Devin McCourty, who didn’t get much attention, but Bill Belichick loves him, and that’s enough for us.  The Patriots also picked up a couple of linebackers at Florida, Jermaine Cunningham and Brandon Spikes, and these two were at the heart of one of the nation’s best defenses for the past two years.  Along with star Jerod Mayo, the Patriots could be set at linebacker for a long time.

Betting Edge: Patriots

Notable Injuries: Saints Patriots Betting

The Saints should be pretty healthy heading into this game, while everyone is still waiting for word on Wes Welker (knee) in New England.  So far, reports say he may not be ready for the regular-season opener, which isn’t good.

Betting Edge: Draw

Outlook and Pick: Saints Patriots Betting

We’re going with the Patriots in this game, as we’re thinking the veterans are in the ear of the young players, telling them about that loss in New Orleans in Week 13 of last year, and that should spark New England.  Another thing about New Orleans, is that they’re not a very deep team, and if they’re going to sit out their best players, there isn’t much behind them, while New England is the deeper team.  Bet on the Patriots in your sports betting picks for the preseason.

Stan’s Pick: Patriots
