Yet the collective "opinion" of the "market" has an amazing ability to accurately signal the outcome. 

It's because the professional gamblers and high rollers usually know what they are doing honestly.

I have an uncle that is a bookie and he is pretty damn amazing at picking against the spread.

Who gives a crap what the line is, it’s the freaking Aints and we need to punch them in the mouth. 

I wish we still had grass. I feel like Carolina has ways been a physical football team and the saints have always been a finesse timing offense. 

We used to always beat them.because we punched them in the mouth, but we have fallen off the past 3 or 4 years and now with this turf crop we are playing to their benefit until our guys get used to it.

We lose this game but beat them later.  Our entire team is growing up

Beat them later?

*looks at Panthers schedule* 🧐

By then (Week 17), it won't matter.

Plus, it will be on the road instead of at home.

I think the time to beat them is NOW with many of their players missing.

I wouldn't put a lot of stock into it.

I really liked the Saints before Hurricane Ida displaced them from the Superdome. This game will be held in Jacksonville, and the lack of home-field advantage combined with Jameis Winston throwing the ball to the wrong team will stymie the Saints here.

NFL Week 1 Picks and Predictions: Packers 31, Saints 20

In fact, not many teams covered last week.

I think the relatively low spread is a recognition of the fact that the Saints haven't actually been home since August at this point, along with much of the coaching staff going into COVID protocol during the same week a number of key starters were nicked up. That the Saints are still favored on the road this week is indicative of Vegas' opinion of the organization's health and the team's depth. One wonders what the spread would have been had the week one results been the same, but without the hurricane and COVID issues for New Orleans and with both teams at full strength.

I kinda wish we got to play them a little bit later than week two. Not having any real home games and living out of hotel rooms will wear them down eventually. They will still be pretty fresh only 8 days into the season.

Week one is the only home game the Saints will miss.  Games two and three were road games anyway.  The mayor has already said the Dome is ready for their next game against the Giants on October 3rd.  I'll be there in section 229.

The Saints will have all the players that played the vast majority of the game against the Packers last week.  Lattimore is the only one that is questionable, but CB Bradley Roby will be active.  He wasn't available in week one.  But, you are correct in that Michael Thomas and David Onyemata will be available week 17.  But, by then the Saints may already have the playoff slot guaranteed and be resting players.

It is amazing what a year learning discipline from a QB legend and great coaching can accomplish.  Not to mention Lasik surgery.

Sure discipline thats it it's not like he couldn't were contacts either right? Tom Brady just won a SB with the roster this clown threw 31 INTs with. 

 

Remind me again who are your weapons on offense outside if Kamara?
