Tips For Betting On Redskins Saints – Resilient Saints Look To Make Statement Versus RGIII

Posted by Tony Bryant on 9/5/2012 6:39:46 PM

The city of New Orleans has become used to the ‘us against the world’ mentality over the last few years, so in many ways this season isn’t expected to be much different than the usual for its beloved Saints. New Orleans won’t have head coach Sean Payton, middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma, or defensive end Will Smith available following suspensions from the NFL for their roles in the recent Bountygate scandal, but that has only increased the team’s resolve ahead of their sports betting season opener against Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.

RGIII won’t have a bounty on him but he will face a hungry Saints’ defense that has something to prove. The Redskins are hoping that Griffin III can do for them what Cam Newton did for the Carolina Panthers as a rookie last season, and it won’t take long for them to find out what they have as he starts opposite Drew Brees for New Orleans.

The big play ability that RGIII showed during a Heisman-trophy winning season was enough to convince the Redskins that he could be their franchise quarterback, and the early results have supported that theory. Washington has surrounded its rookie passer with a ton of talent including free agent addition Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, and Josh Morgan, but a lack of a No. 1 running back could be a concern. Head coach Mike Shanahan has a reputation for breeding successful backs throughout the course of his career, but only time will tell if Roy Helu and Alfred Morris can handle the load until Tim Hightower is healthy. The Redskins’ defense has been very consistent in a talented NFC East the last few seasons, and will face a tough rest right away against Brees and the Saints.

Brees earned the biggest contract in NFL history after breaking the NFL record for passing yards a year ago, and will be relied on even more this season without Payton to help guide him from the sideline. The Saints are very deep at every position on the offense, and there should be no drop off in production as long as Brees can stay healthy. New Orleans could not have landed a better replacement for Greg Williams than new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, and there is potential for those units to be even better this year. The Saints added Curtis Lofton in place of Vilma in the middle, and will now plug veteran defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley in to the heart of the line.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

There is a reason that the online sportsbook sites have the Saints listed as seven-point favorites after all the team went through this past offseason, and the truth is they could blow away that spread if they come out with the sense of urgency expected following the negative press and suspensions they have received. Brees and the offense will put up big numbers, and if the defense can do its job under Spagnuolo then New Orleans should have no trouble covering the number.
