Betting market: More than 80% of bets are on the over as of Sunday (see live data here), which is pretty common for a game in the Superdome. Since the start of the 2015 season, the over has received at least 70% of bets in 17 of the 26 games played there, and has gone over in 12 of the 17.

The over/under has risen from 51 to 52.5 since opening.

The spread was rather dormant early in the week, sticking at New Orleans -6.5 through Friday. However, the support on Washington — which was around 45% of bets and 60% of dollars on Thursday — has risen to 56% of bets and 73% of dollars as of Sunday.

This increase has pushed the Redskins down from +6.5 to +6 across the market. Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Since 2014, Drew Brees and Sean Payton have played 11 games in the Superdome in which the line has moved away from the Saints. They’re 4-7 straight up and 3-7-1 against the spread in such games, failing to cover the spread by 9.4 points per game.

The Saints return to the Superdome after playing back-to-back games on the road. Since coming to New Orleans in 2006, Brees is 16-7 SU and ATS (+8.1 units) at home after playing at least two straight games on the road, making him the NFL’s second-most profitable quarterback in that spot behind only Aaron Rodgers (13-4 ATS).
