Check out our new NFL PRO Report, where we highlight factors that provide betting edges — like large wagers, historically profitable betting systems, model projections and expert picks — that when combined with sharp money can powerfully detail the smartest bets on a given slate.
There has already been plenty of drama surrounding tonight’s Chargers vs. Saints Monday Night Football matchup, thanks to New Orleans wide receiver Michael Thomas.
The star pass-catcher will not play after reportedly punching a teammate in practice.
Thomas is an integral part of New Orleans’ offense, so his absence clearly has an effect on how savvy bettors are approaching the game.
Is the smart money on a low-scoring matchup favoring the Chargers? Or should bettors expect enough offense for the Saints to cover?
Thankfully, our NFL PRO Report details the sharp way to bet both the spread and over/under for tonight’s Chargers vs. Saints Monday Night Football matchup.

Forty-seven percent of bettors have taken Los Angeles, suggesting very balanced betting in this game.
