Free Picks: New Orleans Saints vs Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs at Saints NFL Week 15

The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a yet another victory and looks to continue their hot streak against a New Orleans Saints team that was just humbled by backup quarterback Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14. The Saints look to bounce back against the high-octane Chiefs, whom 888sport has set as -3.5 road favourites (-110).

Super Bowl Sneak Peek?

Alright, so here we’ve got two of the best teams in the league going at it on a Sunday afternoon.  The Chiefs are currently the top dog in the AFC, and the Saints are barely behind the Green Bay Packers in the NFC standings.

We could very realistically be looking at a Super Bowl LV preview.  I’m not sure about the Saints, as the NFC is incredibly tough, and even though the AFC is improving, I see no other team posing a threat to the Chiefs for the time being.

But I digress; this isn’t a Super Bowl preview. We’re still in Week 15.

I don’t think anyone saw the Philadelphia Eagles beating the Saints last week, but it makes their matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend all that more intriguing.

The Saints have done better than expected since Drew Brees went down with an injury a month ago, and Taysom Hill has been a big reason for that.  In their week to the Eagles last week, he completed 74% of his passes while throwing two touchdowns and one interception.  If he can maintain the same efficiency level this weekend, then I like their chances of winning.

The Kansas City Chiefs, meanwhile, are still taking down opponents week after week.  Tyreek Hill looks like an absolute freak of nature, and his connection with Patrick Mahomes is even scarier.

It may come back to haunt me, but I think that after last week, the Saints will come out of the gates red-hot and shock the Chiefs.  Take the Saints on the Moneyline (888sport +163).
