Broncos at Saints Week 10: Game preview, odds, prediction

The New Orleans Saints will host the Denver Broncos on Sunday in Week 10. Here is the game preview, the betting odds, and a final score prediction.

The New Orleans Saints will host the Denver Broncos on Sunday afternoon in Week 10. Kickoff from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome will be at 1:00 p.m. ET on November 13th. CBS will have the telecast.

New Orleans has won its last two games over the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers to get back to .500 at 4-4. The Saints are only 1.5 games back of the first-place Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South race. This Saints team just could end up getting into the NFC Playoffs.

Denver dropped its third game of the season on Sunday Night Football to the division rival Oakland Raiders. The Broncos have an elite defense, but might be hamstrung by its less than stellar offense. Denver feels like a lock to make the AFC Playoffs, but will that be as AFC West Champions or as a Wild Card team?

Odds

Point Spread: New Orleans -2
Moneylines: New Orleans -130, Denver +110
Over/Under: 49

According to OddsShark.com, the Saints will lay two points at home to the visiting Broncos. The associated moneylines are New Orleans -130 and Denver +110. This game’s over/under comes in at a combined 49 points.

Here are the trends to know with regards to the Broncos: 1.) Denver is 8-3 against the spread in its last 11 games. 2.) The Broncos are 11-3 straight up in their last 14 games. 3.) They have gone under in four of their last six games. 4.) Denver is 3-4-2 against the spread in its last nine road games. 5.) The Broncos are 8-4 straight up in their last 12 road games.

Here are the trends to know with regards to the Saints: 1.) New Orleans is 5-0 against the spread and 4-1 straight up in its last five games. 2.) The Saints have gone over in four of their last six games. 3.) They’ve gone over in eight of their last nine home games.

With this being a dome game, expected the point total to go over. New Orleans will dictate the pace of this game with its high-octane offensive assault. Denver will take advantage of the Saints’ mediocre defensive personnel to put up more points than expected.

Denver is probably the better team at the end of the season, but this doesn’t feel like a terribly winnable game for the Broncos. The Mercedes-Benz crowd noise will hurt the Broncos pass rush and more importantly, its already weakened rushing attack. Saints win by a touchdown and a PAT.

Pick: Saints 31, Broncos 24
