NFL Betting – Saints Get On Track Against Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs @ New Orleans Saints – Sunday September 23, 2012 1:00PM EST
The season does not get any easier for the Kansas City Chiefs as the team heads to New Orleans to take on the Saints in week three. The online sports book experts were not surprised that the Atlanta Falcons blew out the Chiefs in the Kansas City home opener, but the lopsided loss to the Buffalo Bills on the road was a little surprising.
The Chiefs have now been blown out in two consecutive home openers and Kansas City has suffered huge losses at the hands of the Bills for two seasons in a row. Absolutely nothing seemed to be going right for the Chiefs in Buffalo, and that is a dangerous pattern to continue as Kansas City faces a desperate New Orleans
The Saints have started the season 0-2, and just about every online football betting expert is pointing at the season-long suspension of Saints' head coach Sean Payton as the culprit. The team is playing well, but not well enough to win games. In week two against the Panthers, the New Orleans offensive line was battered and
beaten and allowed quarterback Drew Brees to get battered and beaten as well. Without Payton, the Saints do not have the ability to close out teams like it used to have and it is doubtful that things will improve much over the next few weeks.
Kansas City Chiefs
The bookmaker betting software experts noticed that Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles did not play very much in the Buffalo game. While the Chiefs try to downplay it as just a matter of the flow of the game requiring more passing and less Charles, the general consensus is that Charles is injured again and that
would leave the Chiefs without a running game. The Chiefs' defense also had problems containing the Buffalo running game, which does not set Kansas City up very well to face this powerful New Orleans running attack.
New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints will be taking this game very seriously. The 5dimes betting experts know that the Saints desperately needs this game and that New Orleans will be pulling out all of the stops to run up the score on Kansas
City. The Saints need a shot of confidence to help the team get through this
season, and this game could be exactly what the Saints need to get back on the winning track.
The Bottom Line
The last thing the Chiefs need to hear is that the Saints need a blow-out win in this game, but that is the unfortunate truth. The Saints will keep the pedal down on the accelerator right up until the final whistle
blows. The Saints need to score a lot of points, and the hapless Chiefs are
more than happy to oblige.
