The New Orleans Saints (5-4) hope to end their two game skid by finishing up their brief road trip with a win in Philadelphia vs. the Eagles (4-6).

The Saints are coming off of disappointing back-to-back losses that were within grasp late, while the Eagles are coming off of a triumphant 30-13 victory over the Denver Broncos at Mile High.

New Orleans will hope to see the return of all-star running back Alvin Kamara after he missed last week. Though Mark Ingram filled in valiantly, the redzone play calling may have had to adjust a bit without Kamara who has proven to be highly effective in that area of the game. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is coming off of a multi-touchdown game in which he also ran for 53 yards, leading a team which has scored 30 or more points in half of their matchups.

Surprisingly, Philadelphia has yet to win a game at home this season. Despite that, the Saints open as 1.5-point underdogs on the road against the Eagles according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

With an over/under of only 44 points, a low-scoring affair is expected. Which could work to the benefit of New Orleans as the Eagles only have one win in which they’ve scored less than 30 points this season.
