Where the action is: Saints an Over bettors delight

Nov 10, 2013 |
This week's edition of Sunday Night Football brings us one of the best matchups of Week 10 as the New Orleans Saints host the Dallas Cowboys.

We talk to sportsbooks about the action coming in on the Sunday Night Football matchup and where oddsmakers see the line closing come kickoff:

Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints (-6, 54)

The Cowboys are the top NFL team against the spread this season with a record of 7-2 and come in with three straight up wins in their past four games.

Subplots abound here, with Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan facing the team that fired him, two of the better QBs going head-to-head and two of the best targets in the game squaring off in Dez Bryant and Jimmy Graham.

The Saints opened as 6-point home faves and are a perfect 4-0 SU and ATS at the Superdome.

"One of the marquee matchups for Week 10, especially given its stand alone Sunday night game time," says Aron Black of Bet365. "Action so far likes the Saints ATS by a 2-to-1 clip, but SU singles are pretty split, though New Orleans is appearing on a lot more parlay tickets than Dallas."

The total, which opened at 52.5, has been bet up to 54 and could rise still before kickoff.

"The most popular play so far is on the Over, which is no big surprise for a late night game of two good passing teams," Black stated.

Other books are seeing heavy action on the Over as well.

"New Orleans is an Over bettors delight this season," confirmed one oddsmaker from BetDSI. "It seems as Drew Brees keeps on piling up fantasy points, bettors keep piling up on New Orleans' Overs."

"This should be one of the more entertaining games of the weekend and I don’t expect the side to move much unless there is big injury news but the total will rise before kickoff in my opinion." concludes Black.
