Joey’s Showdown Throwdown Divisional Round -Philly@NO
Welcome back DFS Grinders we’ve got another great playoff game here with the Eagles taking on the Saints. Last time they played each other 48-7 but now the Eagles have their secret weapon back Nick Foles!!!!
Vegas Insight: 52.5 game total with the Saints a 8.5 point favorite
Weather: Dome Game
Drew Brees: Brees is coming to the end of his career and after last years minnesota miracle you just know he’s going to come out and play his best football the rest of the year. Eagles defense has stepped it up towards the end of the year but the QBs they’ve faced hasn’t been very good.
Michael Thomas: To pair up with brees why not play his best WR for a perfect correlation play. Thomas set the record for completion percentage to a WR and this team will put the ball in their best players hands to win this one in a great matchup.
Zach Ertz: The Saints have struggled vs TEs this year and going up against the Saints the Eagles will try to matchup Ertz on LBs as much as possible. I’m expecting a very nice bounce back game here today. We get him in a nice discount today with him struggling recently.
Tedd Ginn Jr: In his first game back Ginn saw a crazy 8 targets. Ginn has been a deep ball monster his whole career. We could just see a passing onslaught from the Saints tonight just like we saw last time they played.
Mark Ingram: We will most likely see perfect game script for Ingram to see plenty of run tonight. Sean Payton brought in $225k with armored guards into the Saints locker room to show what they are playing for. (Super Bowl bonus)
I could see this game becoming a shootout, but if you want to take a shot on play the Saints defense. We could see the Nick Foles hype train come to an end here and I love picking the home teams defense with more than a 1 touchdown favorite.
Keith Kirkwood: Week 16 when we saw the last of the Saints first team offense Kirkwood actually saw the second most snaps of the WRs so we could see him have plenty of opportunity for him to perform.
