Week 10 is a big game for the New Orleans Saints, who still have a chance to win the NFC South and need to win this game against a stumbling Pittsburgh Steelers squad to remain in the running.
For those who enjoy betting on games, let's discuss the best bet for Saints vs Steelers.
Josh Yourish of BetSided discussed areas where bettors should feel comfortable in this game and one revolved around Alvin Kamara.
"Kamara hasn’t been entirely himself this season, but he has been good. TJ Watt coming back will increase the amount of pressure that Dalton is under this week, so I would expect a lot of dump-offs to Kamara when Watt is coming around the edge. "- Josh Yourish, BetSided
Saints Best Bet vs Steelers: Alvin Kamara Rushing + Receiving Yards OVER
Yourish brings up a solid point about T.J. Watt returning and he's going to wreak havoc on a nicked-up Saints offensive line. This means that, as Yourish pointed out, Kamara should get some looks from a panicked Andy Dalton.
While Kamara hasn't had the typical season we're used to seeing from him, he showed just two weeks ago that he still has those big games left in him, thrashing the Raiders with three touchdowns on the day. The Saints offense needs someone to step up and lead the way this week and Kamara has a solid chance of being that guy for the team.
What makes Kamara so dangerous is that he's lethal in both the ground game and the pass-catching game. Dalton knows that Kamara will be there to bail him out if he's getting pressured time and time again, so this feels like a safe direction to go in for this game.
