The Saints came into the season as a Super Bowl hopeful, but now New Orleans will have its hands full just to stay afloat in the NFC South after losing Drew Brees for the next six weeks.
Even though they are missing Brees, the Saints have seen the line move in their direction. After opening as an 4.5-point underdog, New Orleans has shortened to +4, despite 73% of the bets coming in on Seattle.
Let’s dig into our analysts’ breakdown of this matchup, complete with Sean Koerner’s projected odds and a pick.
Saints-Seahawks Injury Report
Which team is healthier? Seahawks
The Seahawks win this one by default after the Saints will lose Brees (thumb) for an extended period of time. They’re also dealing with other offensive injuries as Tre’Quan Smith (ankle) hasn’t practiced after getting injury last week, and they placed WR Keith Kirkwood (hamstring) on injured reserve.
Seattle was looking shaky with four missed practices on Wednesday, but that number has been cut to two after Thursday’s report came in. CB Neiko Thorpe (hamstring) and OL Ethan Pocic (neck) have yet to get in a practice this week. — Justin Bailey
