NFL Week 4 Betting: New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers

NFL Week 4 Betting:  New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers

In the second round of games to be played on Sunday – the Green Bay Packers will host the New Orleans Saints. The Packers come into the game with a 1-2 record; trailing Chicago and Minnesota in the NFC North. The Saints have struggled to open the season; and are 0-3. They are the lone team in the NFC to be winless through three weeks. 

The Green Bay Packers had a late up until the final seconds of Monday Night’s game. The Packers allowed a game winning touchdown from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate as the clock expired. While the game was interesting, it was one Green Bay would like to have back. The game was the final NFL game called by replacement officials. While many would like to blame the replacements for the Packers loss, Green Bay did allow the Seahawks to sack Aaron Rodgers 8 times in the first half of the game. Green Bay lost their opener to San Francisco, and then beat the Bears on Thursday night in week two. The Packers have scored 57 points and allowed 54 on the season.

For New Orleans, they desperately need a win. The Saints have yet to win this season. While many say losing head coach Sean Payton would not hurt the team, their record indicates otherwise. New Orleans is having a terrible time slowing down opposing offenses. The Saints have allowed 102 points in three games, and are allowing nearly 500 yards of offense to opponents. New Orleans’ quarter Drew Brees continues to impress, as he has thrown for 900+ yards and 7 touchdowns on the season. His top target has been Jimmy Graham, with 17 catches and 3 touchdowns.
