NFL Trio of Action: Saints at Ravens & Cowboys at Redskins & Rams at 49ers
Drew Brees, Dak Prescott and Jared Goff will all be looking to lead their respective teams to road victories when the New Orleans Saints visit the Baltimore Ravens, the Dallas Cowboys head to the nation’s capitol to take on Washington Redskins and the Los Angeles Rams head to the bay area to take on the San Francisco 49ers.
Now, let’s find out if all three teams are going to get road wins this coming weekend with our NFL Trio of Action.
New Orleans Saints at Baltimore Ravens
Yes, Baltimore looked pretty good in their 21-0 shutout win over Tennessee last weekend, but I think you’ve got to look at the win for what it was, a beatdown against a struggling Titans team that can barely core these days.
New Orleans has won four straight games, they’re well-rested after getting a bye this past weekend and they can put points on the board, almost in the blink of an eye. However, what makes the Saints the easy pick for me is the fact that New Orleans is starting to play defense like they were last season. I know Baltimore has an elite defense that leads the league in fewest points allowed (12.8 ppg), but I just don’t believe they’re going to be able to contain a New Orleans offense is ranked first in scoring (36.0 ppg).
In addition to that, I don’t think the Ravens are going to be able to put enough points on the board to keep pace with Drew Brees and company. Baltimore scored a modest 21 points against the Titans last week and they were limited to a paltry 9 points in their overtime loss to Cleveland in Week 5.
The Saints are 4-2 ATS in their last six games and a stellar 15-5-1 ATS mark in their last 21 road games. I know Baltimore is 6-1 SU in their last seven home games and 4-2 ATS in their last six games overall, but I’m going with the Saints to get the big road win and ATS cover to extend their winning ways.
Predicted Score: Saints 28 Ravens 24
Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins
The Cowboys put an emphatic 40-7 beatdown on Jacksonville last weekend that pretty much shocked the hell out of everyone. Not only did the Boys cover the chalk as a 3-point home underdog, but Dak Prescott and Dallas’ dormant (pathetic?) passing attack came alive in a big way thanks mostly to the fact that Jacksonville couldn’t cover Cole Beasley.
Washington also picked up a fantastic 23-17 win over Carolina to cash in as a 1-point home underdog as veteran quarterback Alex Smith tossed two TD passes and cornerback Josh Norman starred by picking off his former homeboy, Cam Newton.
Now, the Skins are 1.5-point home favorites and I like them to get it done. Washington has a slight edge in scoring (21.2-20.5 ppg) and Dallas has the slight edge defensively (20.8 ppg-17.2 ppg) and that means these two three-win teams are pretty evenly matched. I don’t believe Dallas is going to suddenly have a legitimate passing attack despite their explosion last week. For me, the simple pick is Washington at home, especially as a less than field goal favorite.
Predicted Score: Washington 27 Dallas 21
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers
The Rams remained unbeaten by getting past Denver 23-20 in a game that wasn’t nearly as the final score indicates. San Francisco put up a great effort but fell to an Aaron Rodgers comeback in their 33-30 heartbreaker of a loss to Green Bay. While I keep saying I like young Niners quarterback C.J. Beathard, the fact of the matter is that Frisco is just trying to forge a new identity right now after losing franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the remainder of the regular season.
The Rams, on the other hand, are legitimate Super Bowl favorites. L.A. is loaded on both sides of the ball and they’ve played like it in ranking third in scoring (32.7 ppg) and seventh in points allowed (19.7 ppg). After two straight close calls, the Rams cruise to a double-digit win against the reeling Niners.
Predicted Score: Rams 31 49ers 21
