The New Orleans Saints (5-4) take on the Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) this weekend in an NFC showdown. Let’s take a look at the best prop bets for this game. 

Both the Saints and the Eagles are pretty desperate to win on Sunday. New Orleans is still in the playoffs as of now but they can’t lose many more games if they want that to be the case. Philadelphia, on the other hand, isn’t in the playoff picture as of now, but a win over NOLA would get them closer to being in contention.

With such a big game on tap, let’s check out three of the best prop bets for this matchup. All odds are courtesy of WynnBET.

New Orleans Saints Prop Bets

1. Trevor Siemian Passing Yards (218.5)

While Trevor Siemian isn’t going to lead the Saints to the promised land, unfortunately, he’s been a serviceable quarterback during his three appearances and two starts. This week, his passing yard total has been set at 218.5, which seems low for the journeyman quarterback.

In his two starts with the Saints, Siemian has tossed for no fewer than 249 yards. The Eagles’ secondary isn’t anything special, so there’s no reason Siemian can’t blow past the 218.5 that’s been set for him.

Over (-112)

2. Deonte Harris Receiving Yards (37.5)

Deonte Harris has, without a doubt, been the best wide receiver on the Saints’ roster this season. On most teams, he’s nothing more than a return specialist who occasionally finds his way into the game and catches the ball here and there.

With New Orleans, however, Harris has been able to show that he can be a threat down the field. His receiving yard total for Week 11 in Philadelphia is set at 37.5, which is low. He’s had more than 37.5 yards in five of his eight games this season and has become one of Siemian’s favorite targets.

Since Siemian became the starter, Harris has totaled 52 yards in one game and 83 in another. Hit the over here.

Over (-112)

3. Jalen Hurts Rushing Yards (47.5)

Last, but not least, we turn to the other sideline. Jalen Hurts is known for his ability to take off with the football at a moment’s notice, so it’s not surprising to see his total rushing yards set at 47.5 this week.

While Hurts is a prolific runner and has only fallen under the 47.5 mark three times through 10 games, I’m going with the under here because of how good the Saints defense is against the run. Hurts stifled this NOLA defense last year but that was his first NFL start. There’s now film on the former Alabama and Oklahoma quarterback and the Saints will be up for the challenge this time.

The New Orleans Saints have the best rushing defense in the league, allowing the least amount of rushing yards so far. Don’t expect Hurts to carve this group up.

Under (-112)
