The Philadelphia Eagles enter the Monday Night Football game as unlikely underdogs. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints are hoping to erase the memories of last week's drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos. The good news for these teams is that somebody has to win tonight. Let's take a closer look and see who might have the edge.
Before Week 9 kicked off, Las Vegas pegged the Saints as -2 favorites on the look-ahead line. Yet, after the Eagles made a mess of their game against the Falcons the line re-opened at -3.5. Since then, some money has come in on the underdog moving the line to -3 at most places. There are hints that a -2.5 could be had with a bit extra juice, but you'll have to shop around to find the best numbers.
At the start of the season this match-up appeared like a much better game than it currently is. Now we have two walking wounded scratching and clawing to salvage a nightmare season.
