saintsYes, it’s true, the Saints are a pass first team with Drew Brees at the helm, but come the postseason, they know the importance of running the football. The best part is they’ve got the back to do it effectively. The Saints rested Alvin Kamara a lot the second half of the season, using him only when they needed to, and when he was used the final five weeks, he was productive. They now need to lean on Kamara a lot in a game that could move the Saints to a showdown at Lambeau Field next week. In a critical matchup against the Titans two weeks ago, Kamara totaled 80 yards on the ground en route to a narrow win. The Vikings are vulnerable against the run, ranking No. 13 in the league. Kamara has gone over this total rushing in 8 of his full 13 games played, and some of those games he only saw part-time work recovering from an injury. I love this total today. Give me the over on Kamara and 55.5 yards rushing.

Prediction: Kamara 16 rushes, 79 yards

 

Carson Wentz OVER 1.5 touchdown passes +100

FanDuel Sportsbook Odds: Wentz OVER 1.5 TD passes

DraftKings Sportsbook Odds:Wentz OVER 1.5 TD passes

eaglesEarlier this week, I highlighted why the Eagles will beat the Seahawks this week. In the first meeting, the Seahawks shut down Philadelphia on a windy day at Lincoln Financial Field and in the midst of the Eagles drought. The Eagles have since righted the ship, coming in winners of four in a row since that loss to the Dolphins in week 13. In that time, Carson Wentz has stepped up, throwing 7 TD passes over his final 4 games. The Seahawks are vulnerable to the pass, ranking No. 27 against the pass and giving up 19 touchdowns through the air. While winds are to be a factor throughout the day at Lincoln Financial Field, they are expected to die down by sunset when the game is set to kickoff. Dallas Goedert will be a red zone weapon for Wentz today, as could Zach Ertz should he be cleared to play. There’s always the chance of getting down to the one and running it in, but the Eagles should be able to total 3 or 4 touchdowns today, and I’ll roll the dice that two are through the air with even odds.

Prediction: Wentz 3 TDs
