The New Orleans Saints are 5-5 after a 5-2 start and it’s all unraveling for the black and gold. They don’t have long to dwell on their 40-29 loss to the Eagles, as they’ll be taking the field on Thanksgiving night and facing a stout Buffalo Bills squad, who’s also coming off a rough loss.
This Saints team is .500 after taking down the Bucs on Halloween, which now feels like a lifetime ago. It’s a completely different group now, as the offense doesn’t believe in competing until the fourth quarter and the defense is nowhere near that same lethal unit we saw three weeks ago.
New Orleans doesn’t have long to figure out what’s ailing them, as the Bills are hoping to get back on track on a short week.
Saints vs Bills Odds Week 12
WynnBET has the Saints as 6.5-point underdogs at home, which isn’t shocking if you’ve watched them play during this losing skid. It’s the first time NOLA has lost three games in a row since 2016, proving they’ve been a good team during that time but there are more problems than we can count at this point.
The moneyline for NOLA is +240 and Buffalo’s is -325 while the over/under is set at 45.0 points. Maybe the Bills score most of those points but that number feels too high considering how much both offenses struggled this past week.
Saints vs Bills Prediction Week 12
Why would I pick the Saints to win at this point? They’ve been really bad during their losing streak and if they continue to wait until the fourth quarter to get it going, they’re not going to win another game this season. I’m going with a 27-17 Bills victory on Turkey Day.
