Monday Night Football Picks Analysis: Both of these teams have top-flight offenses that can put up points in a hurry. New England started the season slow but has really come on of late since slot WR Wes Welker returned from injury. Both of these teams have question marks on the defensive side of the ball with New England lacking depth on their D-Line while the Saints secondary is injury riddled. On paper the Patriots have the better defense (#2-#15) and we feel that will be the difference in this game. New England Patriots vs. New Orleans Saints MNF Picks NFL Betting Total is at 56.5 points.
The Saints have been slow starters all season long and against the Patriots that will be their downfall. The Saints strong running game will not be as effective if they have to play catch up and that will hurt them. New England has small advantages in both the coaching and special teams departments and that should be enough to hand the Saints their first loss of the season.
