NFL Betting – New Orleans Saints at Washington Redskins

NFL betting action for the second week of the 2008 regular season includes a matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Washington Redskins.

Both teams are considered contenders in the NFC this season, so this football betting matchup should be entertaining.

NFL betting shows a powerful Saints offense against a solid Washington defense. The Saints were third in the league last season in passing and fourth in total offense according to NFL betting stats. The problem for the Saints last season was on defense as the ranked 26th in the league according to NFL betting stats. The Saints added linebacker Jonathan Vilma in the off-season and they are also hoping that first round pick Sedrick Ellis will make an impact. On offense the Saints added Jeremy Shockey in the off-season and he should open things up even more for quarterback Drew Brees along with running backs Reggie Bush and Deuce McAllister. That will be important in this football betting matchup considering the Redskins were 4th against the run last season but only 16th against the pass according to NFL betting stats.

NFL betting experts believe that Washington will also look to run the ball with running back Clinton Portis. NFL betting experts believe that the key to this game may come down to how well Jason Campbell plays under new head coach Jim Zorn’s offensive system. With New Orleans gearing up to stop Portis it will be up to Campbell to hit open receivers.

NFL betting stats show that the two teams have met twice in the past six years with New Orleans winning both times. The last time was in 2003 according to NFL betting stats as the Saints won 24-20. New Orleans is 14-11 against the football betting pointspread in their last 25 road games. 14 of the Saints last 25 road games have gone over the NFL betting number. The Redskins are about .500 at home against the NFL betting number the past three seasons. 13 of the Redskins last 24 games at home have gone under the football betting number.
