The Saints turned in Week 8's most dominant performance, a 24-0 beatdown of the Raiders. Now, attention is focused on Baltimore for a Monday Night Football clash. New Orleans is a slight home underdog, but there are several reasons to believe the Saints will win.

Before I explain why New Orleans will upset the Ravens, I first want to make sure you've utilized BetMGM's phenomenal promo for Saints fans: Bet $10, Get $200 if either team scores a TD.

3 Reasons the Saints Will Upset the Ravens

Improving Defense

The Saints responded to a terrible game against Arizona in style, shutting out the Raiders in a dominant victory last week. Las Vegas didn't even cross midfield until the fourth quarter as the Saints sacked Derek Carr four times and intercepted a pass.

Over the last three weeks, New Orleans ranks eighth in opponent yards per play (5.0). That even includes the Arizona debacle, so the Saints have been strong overall.

Alvin Kamara

Hey, Alvin Kamara is back! The star running back finally scored a TD this year...then promptly scored two more. He ended the Raiders game with over 150 total yards in addition to the three scores, and he'll be the most dynamic skill position player on the field Thursday.

He's received at least nine targets in three straight games, and that kind of dual-threat usage should give Baltimore's defense fits. The Ravens are 21st in opponent yards per play (5.7), so I expect Kamara to put the Saints in a position to win.

Strong Offense

That strong scoring stretch for the offense is splendid news, as the Saints have actually improved even while suffering injuries to Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry. This may come as a surprise, but the Saints are fifth in yards per play (6.0) across the entire NFL. That's even better than Baltimore, who is eighth (5.9).

New Orleans made a conscious decision to start passing more on first down, and it's resulted in one of the league's best offenses. Short passes to Kamara have proven to be more dangerous than rushes (4.3 yards per carry compared to 8.7 yards per catch), while Chris Olave is a stellar deep threat that keeps defenses from stacking the box.

In a close game, I believe the Saints offense will be the difference-maker.
