Free NFL Picks and Predictions on this Week 5 Monday Night Football game between the the Los Angeles Chargers vs New Orleans Saints kicking off on October 12, 2020 at 8:20pm at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana.

The current NFL odds have the Saints as -7.5 point favorites with the over/under currently at 50 points. The betting public has 54% of their money on New Orleans as the home favorites.

The 1-3 Chargers are in desperate need of a win. Rookie Quarterback Justin Herbert will get the start again after a pretty impressive game last Sunday against the Bucs where he threw for 20 of 25 completions for 3 touchdowns and an interception. He’ll be most likely throwing it more than 25 times in this matchup due to running back, Austin Ekeler being ruled out, so expect Herbert to make some rookie mistakes that will put New Orleans in good field position to put up some points and grab that early lead. The Chargers on the road this year are scoring an average of 23.5 points per game and giving up 25.5 points per game on defense.

Los Angeles is 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games against New Orleans and the total has gone over in 5 of the Chargers’ last 6 games on the road.

New Orleans comes into this game 2-2 overall after taking care of business last week on the road and getting the 35-29 win against the Detroit Lions. Drew Brees put up 246 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Alvin Kamara was the x-factor against the Lions last week rushing for 83 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries and expect him to be better this Monday Night against this Chargers defense who on the road give up an average on 118 yards per game. We’ll be on Kamara’s rushing yards player prop if the price is right, so comment below to get on this extra action. Key players like Michael Thomas, Janoris Jenkins, and Jared Cook have all been listed as questionable for this game. New Orleans is ranked 7th in the league on offense at home, putting up an average of 32 points per game, while on defense giving up an average of 30 points per game.

New Orleans is 11-1 straight up in their last 12 games against an opponent in the AFC. The total has gone over in 5 of the Saints last 5 games against the Chargers.

The best opportunity to make money on this Los Angeles Chargers vs New Orleans Saints is to roll with the the Saints First Quarter -0.5 point at the -125 price.
