Week 17 of the NFL continues with this conference clash in Philadelphia on Sunday, December 1, and here you can take a look at the best Saints vs. Eagles betting pick and odds.

New Orleans is searching for the third straight win when they visit Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles are -6.5 favorites on BetDSI Sportsbook, while the total is set at 44 points. These NFC rivals faced once last year, and the Eagles won that game 40-29 in Philadelphia.

Saints are still alive in the playoff race

The New Orleans Saints (6-9-0, 6-9-0 ATS) won two games in a row for the first time this season and now are suddenly back in the playoff hunt with just a win behind the divisional foes Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Saints defeated the Atlanta Falcons at home and then beat the Cleveland Browns 17-10 on the road. New Orleans trailed 10-0 in the second quarter but answered with 17 unanswered points to secure a win.

Andy Dalton completed eight of 15 passes for 92 yards and an interception. While the pass offense didn’t work, the Saints were excellent on the ground and gained 152 yards on 39 carries. Alvin Kamara had 76 yards and a TD on 20 attempts and Taysom Hill contributed 56 yards and a score on nine carries. In the air, Rashid Shaheed and Kamara combined for 75 yards on six receptions (nine targets). Defensively, Tyrann Mathieu impressed with a game-high 11 tackles.

RB Mark Ingram II (knee), WR Jarvis Landry (ankle), and WR Michael Thomas (foot) are out indefinitely. T Andrus Peat (ankle), CB Marshon Lattimore (abdomen), and WR Chris Olave (hamstring) are questionable to feature on Sunday against Philadelphia.

Eagles dropped a double-digit lead in a loss to the Cowboys

The Philadelphia Eagles (13-2-0, 8-7-0 ATS) were on a five-game winning run and were close to clinching the NFC East title, but dropped a 10-point lead in the third quarter in a 40-34 loss to the divisional foes Dallas Cowboys on the road. Philly allowed a season-high 40 points in this loss, and although the hosts weren’t better in total yards and first downs, the Eagles committed even four turnovers opposite the Cowboys’ one.

Josh Sweat converted that lone turnover the Eagles forced into a 42-yard pick-six to make it 10-0 for Philadelphia. Gardner Minshew completed 24 of 40 passes for 355 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. He also added a rushing TD. DeVonta Smith was great in the air with a team-high 113 yards and a couple of scores on eight receptions. A.J. Brown followed him with 103 yards on six catches, while Miles Sanders had 65 rushing yards on 21 carries. On defense, Philadelphia recorded six sacks opposite Dallas’ zero. Haason Reddick and Josh Sweat combined for 3.5 sacks, while T.J. Edwards got a game-high 14 tackles.

DE Robert Quinn (knee), T Lane Johnson (ankle), and P Arryn Siposs (leg) are out indefinitely. QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) is questionable to play on Sunday against the Saints.


New Orleans:

  • 0-4 ATS in the last four games following an ATS win
  • 0-4 ATS in the last four games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game


  • 6-1 ATS in the last seven home games
  • 5-2 ATS in the last seven games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game

New Orleans Saints vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pick

The Saints did limit their opponents to 20 or fewer points in each of their previous six games, but it’s not going to be easy against the best offense in the NFL that averages 29.7 points per game. Philadelphia scored at least 25 in each of its last five games, and I expect the Eagles to improve defensively after allowing a season-high 40 points in a loss to Dallas. New Orleans is without key wideouts and will likely try to do damage on the ground through Kamara and Hill, but the Eagles’ run defense is better than the Saints’. That is going to play a vital role in this tilt because the hosts like to run. Philly has a chance to clinch the NFC East title on Sunday and I am backing the hosts to do it.

Pick: Take the Eagles at -4.5 (-133)

The Total

The Saints know they have no chance if this game develops into a high-scoring affair, so they will do anything they can to keep the ball in possession and control the clock with running. The Eagles have the fourth-best run offense that averages 153.8 yards per game, so I expect them to use running backs and Hurts (if available) a lot. Under is 4-0 in the Saints’ last four games overall; Under is 4-0 in New Orleans’ previous four road games, while Under is 6-1 in the Saints’ last seven vs. a team with a winning record.

Pick: Go Under 45.5 points (-130)
