Saints Host Cowboys in Potential Betting on NFL Playoff Preview

September 26th, 2019 NFL Football, Sportsbook

What a difference a year makes.  In 2018 New Orleans was making a serious Super Bowl run with one of the top offenses in football.  While the Cowboys were struggling for betting on NFL profits due to a lack of scoring power.  Dallas has since solved its offensive woes and has impressed.  By contrast, the Saints are trying to keep their heads above water without injured quarterback Drew Brees.  A win at Seattle was stunning and impressive.  The question remains about the long-term prospects of New Orleans until Brees returns.  Certainly, Dallas provides a stark challenge.
