They may be on four-game winning streak without Drew Brees, they may be be playing their best defense of the Sean Payton era, but your New Orleans Saints are underdogs as they hit the road this weekend in Chicago.
The Saints defense has played well for the last several games, but other than against Tampa Bay, the offense really hasn't been lighting up the scoreboard.
"Let's face it, the Saints offense has had one game with Bridgewater throwing up some big numbers," says oddsmaker Raphael Esparza. "They've been stagnant."
Esparza says now the Saints have to go on the road and face a tough Chicago defense.
"They have to go against a Bears defense who is coming off a bye week after a very, very disappointing loss in London to the Raiders," says Esparza.
But as three to four point road underdogs, he points out that basically means both teams are evenly matched.
