The Saints defeated St. Louis 28-23 on Sunday but they did not cover the NFL lines.
NFL betting odds have seen New Orleans get a lot of respect this season and deservedly so, but this past week they were fortunate to leave St. Louis with a win. NFL betting odds showed that Reggie Bush scored two touchdowns as the Saints stayed unbeaten.
Drew Brees had two touchdowns but also threw two interceptions in the NFL betting odds game. You're not going to blow everyone out," said cornerback Randall Gay, "It's a lot harder to blow teams out when for a lot of teams, this is like their playoff game." NFL lines had the Rams driving down to the New Orleans 32 yard line before quarterback Marc Bulger threw two incomplete passes into the end zone to end it. "It would have been really nice to pull it off," Bulger said. "There's a reason they're unbeaten. They made plays when they had to."
The Saints bumbled around for most of the game as they turned it over three teams and scored less than 30 points for the first time in five NFL betting odds games. "We're not content with where we're at, and we're certainly not content with the way we've played these last few weeks," Brees said. "We need to close the game out when we're given the opportunity."
The Rams made a little NFL history in this NFL betting odds game. They were facing their third straight unbeaten team at home in NFL lines. That is the first time that has ever happened as NFL betting odds history shows. There were blown out by the Colts and Vikings but they were very much in the loss to New Orleans and covered the NFL betting odds. The difference ended up being Reggie Bush who has not made much of an impact in NFL betting odds recently. "I think coach gave me a lot of opportunities to make plays and I think I was able to do that today." Bush said. NFL lines had this being the first two-TD game for Bush since October of last year.
The Saints face another poor team next week in NFL betting odds as they are at Tampa Bay. New Orleans will look to keep their unbeaten record intact and play a better game and have a chance to cover the NFL betting odds.
