The New Orleans Saints are hoping to remain in the win column but it won't be easy, as next up on the schedule is the San Francisco 49ers. These teams have had very different seasons despite being teams that value the run game and defense.
For those who enjoy betting on games, let's check out the best bet to make in this NFC matchup.
Saints Best Bet: Alvin Kamara UNDER 50.5 Rushing Yards
The Saints are undoubtedly a better team when Kamara is involved heavily on offense but the problem with that this week is that the 49ers have allowed the fewest rushing yards per game, according to Team Rankings. They've also surrendered the third-fewest rushing yards in the league over the last three games.
This is going to make it hard for Kamara and the Saints run game to get much going. Kamara is talented, yes, but this year's Saints have shown that when the going gets tough on the ground, they completely move away from running the ball and that's why I don't feel confident in Kamara getting a lot of carries on Sunday.
Hopefully, even if Kamara can't get going on the ground, he gets involved as a pass-catcher but that doesn't help you here. I don't like Kamara's chances of having a big game against this stout 49ers run defense.
