CSC Staff Picks, Week 4: Confidence high in the Saints over the Giants

...but the last time this happened, the Saints got their butts whooped.

The New Orleans Saints are favored to win this week against the New York Giants.

The last time they were favored to win - by betting odds, the national media, and the CSC staff - was Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers, and we all remember how that game went. In Weeks 1 and 3, confidence was mixed in the Saints chances to pull off a win against the Packers and Patriots, but the Saints took care of business.

This week, the staff unanimously has picked the Saints to beat the Giants in the first home game in the Superdome (with a Dome full of fans) on Sunday. Will that doom the Saints?

Here are our live-updating picks:

Last year, we had a celebrity guest join us each week to make picks for that week’s games. This year, we’re going to do something differently, where we’ll have a reader of Canal Street Chronicles make picks and track how our readers stack up with the staff here at CSC. This week, we have Tamarcus Lang (@lang_tamarcus on Twitter) joining us to make picks to kick off the 2021 season.

Here are Tamarcus’s picks this week:

Bengals, Titans, Lions, Dolphins, Browns, Washington, Saints, Chiefs, Cowboys, Seahawks, Rams, Packers, Broncos, Buccaneers, Raiders

Here’s how previous readers have done:
