Point Spread: -6.50 | -110.00 New Orleans (Home)
The Saints haven't quite been as invincible at home this season as we've seen them be in previous years. They lost to the 49ers last week, ending a 14 game home winning streak. This week's opponent should prove to be a lot easier for the Saints to handle, and I think we'll see another blowout in the Big Easy.
Andy Dalton is coming off the worst game of his career, throwing for 86 yards, no TDs and three INTs on 10-of-33 passing against the Browns. He now has more picks than he does touchdowns this season, and he's never had a lot of success on the road. He's thrown for just two TDs and six picks over his last four starts, with a league low completion percentage during that span.
Drew Brees threw 39 TD passes last year, and 27 of those came at home. Jimmy Graham was on the receiving end of 16 of those TDs last season, and he had 10 receptions for 72 yards and a pair of TDs last week. With their superstar TE back near 100%, I can't see the Cincy defense stopping the Saints from lighting up the scoreboard.
The Bengals are 3-8-1 ATS in the last 12 road games, and this is a tough spot for a team that doesn't travel well.
