The New Orleans Saints kick off against the New York Giants this Sunday at noon CST. It’ll pit the 2-1 Saints against a winless Giants team who have lost their last two games on a last-second field goal by the other team.
Saints fans know what an 0-3 start looks like and they’re fortunate to have two wins under their belt already. The defense has looked good in two of their three starts but this week the offense needs to step it up and show more than what they have to this point of the season.

3. Demario Davis – Tackles/Assists (7.5)
One of the most important Saints on the defensive side of the ball is linebacker Demario Davis, who this team always expects to make big plays throughout the game. He’s done just that three games into the season and is a sideline-to-sideline linebacker who flies all over the field.
For this game, the Giants are going to run the ball early and often. They have second overall pick, Saquon Barkley, heating up after a slow start and Daniel Jones is someone who can always take off and pick up a key first down with his legs.
With that in mind, Davis is going to be a critical player in this game. His over/under number of tackles and assists has been set at 7.5 and that seems too low for Davis, especially when the opponent has the ability to put up yards on the ground.
In the past two games, Davis has totaled eight tackles (Week 2) and seven tackles (Week 3) so this number is tricky. The linebacker is always one of the most dependable tacklers though so I feel pretty confident taking the over here.
Pick: Over (-125)
