The New Orleans Saints take on the Seattle Seahawks and hope to move to 2-3 and not drop down to 1-4. In order to do so, the black and gold need to have a big game from one of their receivers and Chris Olave seems like a good candidate to put up numbers.

Olave, who the Saints traded up for in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, has been a star through four games, totaling 335 yards off of 21 catches and found the end zone for the first time in his career last week.

That brings us to our best bet of the week with the odds courtesy of FanDuel.

Chris Olave Receiving Yards Over 65.5 (-113)

Olave has been rock solid in all four of his games so far, notching at least 41 yards in each game. He's coming off an excellent performance where he hauled in four catches for 67 yards and with Michael Thomas on the shelf again this week, it feels probable that a lot of Thomas' targets will go to Olave.

Jarvis Landry should be good to go for this one but with him being dinged up as well, Olave is going to be Andy Dalton's favorite target. I like the chances for Olave to blow past the 65.5 yard mark against a Seahawks team that has given up the fifth-most passing yards through four games.
