Saints vs Packers Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

Neither team has a great run defense, but Alvin Kamara is still suspended for New Orleans while Aaron Jones is trending towards returning for Green Bay. Advantage Packers.

The Saints are 0-2 ATS, so they fit a couple Kitchen Sink trends despite the 2-0 SU start. Green Bay is 13-4 ATS (76%) after a loss under Matt LaFleur.

However, are we sure Jordan Love is good now? Love leads the NFL in EPA, but he's done it against the Bears and Falcons, and this Saints defense is another animal. They're No. 4 in Defensive DVOA so far and have finished top eight in each of the past six years under Dennis Allen.

Love hasn't thrown an interception this season, but he's had accuracy issues and has been a turnover machine at every level. If you go back to college, Love has thrown at least one interception in 13 of his last 18 games (72%) when he's played at least half the snaps, with multiple INTs in seven of the last 16. He's +425 (Bet365) to throw two picks, if you want to get spicy. Let's see him prove it against a real defense.
