If we told you New Orleans owns a 17-1 ATS trend and has also won and covered the past four seasons before a bye week, would you lean towards them in the Week 5 Monday Nighter?
The Saints, who scored on seven straight drives after going down 14-0 last week to the Detroit Lions, are 17-1 ATS over the past five seasons in October. We aren’t sure why, but we sure have profited from the ongoing money train.
Meanwhile the Los Angeles Chargers couldn’t complete their comeback against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. These teams lock up with the Saints sitting as 7.5 point favorites earlier in the week (check BetRivers for the current line). The Chargers have been a different football team under Justin Herbert and 7.5 points might be too much to give the Saints. Give me the Chargers and the points in this one.
