NFL Win Totals Betting Pick: New Orleans Saints

NFL Win Totals Betting Pick: New Orleans SaintsThree years in a row the New Orleans Saints have entered the off-season with a sense of frustration and a question of What-If? First it was the Minneapolis Miracle that ended their season, then it was the uncalled DPI that saw a rule change, and finally this past January an overtime touchdown from Kirk Cousins to Kyle Rudolph with the home team never touching the ball in the extra period.

           

The good news is that the offensive firepower is still intact so the window, while closing, remains open for this Super Bowl contender. Drew Brees, Michael Thomas, and Alvin Kamara when healthy form quite the three-headed monster for head coach Sean Payton. Last year the offense finished ninth in total yards, seventh in passing yards and had the least amount of turnovers (8) in the NFL.

Why Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig Can Win the Bundesliga

The Bundesliga suspended the season in mid-March because of coronavirus concerns but they already have plans in place to return.

The German Football League (DFL) made plans for the Bundesliga to resume this month. The games would have to take place behind closed doors and there would be regular testing of players and strict hygiene measures.
