The New Orleans Saints are riding a five-game losing streak for the first time in the Sean Payton era. It’s been all downhill since NOLA shocked the NFL world in their upset over the Bucs, but even though the Saints won that game, they lost Jameis Winston and their season’s been spiraling out of control ever since.
This week gives NOLA a nice chance to bounce back, as they’ll face the New York Jets. The game is on the road but at this point, an easier opponent is exactly what the Saints need in order to get back on track. No team is easy but the Jets are certainly one of the weaker teams in the league. Even with that in mind, however, New York has managed to defeat the Titans and Bengals, two very good teams, so they’re not to be underestimated.
New Orleans isn’t just facing a terrible run on injuries but several players have tested positive for COVID-19, putting their Sunday statuses in jeopardy.
Saints Injury Report vs Jets Week 14
The following players are listed as OUT for today’s game:
LB Kaden Elliss
OT Ryan Ramczyk
LB Pete Werner
Marcus Davenport Injury Update
Former first-round pick Marcus Davenport has been injury-prone throughout his NFL career and it’s too bad. This season in particular it’s been rough seeing him get injured because he’s actually been quite impressive in year four after three mediocre seasons and the bust label getting thrown around frequently. Davenport was limited in practice this week.
Saints vs Jets Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick Week 14
WynnBET has NOLA as 5.5-point favorites over the Jets with a money line of -240 while New York’s money line sits at +200. The over/under is set at 43.0 points, which indicates that Vegas thinks this will be one of the lower-scoring affairs this weekend.
I’ve been picking against New Orleans in recent weeks because of how badly they’ve struggled on offense but this is one game they should win. If they can’t beat the Jets, NOLA has no business making the playoffs. Give me a 21-10 Saints victory on the road in New Jersey.
