New Orleans Saints vs. Denver Broncos Matchup Preview (11/29/20): Betting Odds, Depth Charts, Live Stream (Watch Online)

The Saints will be looking for another with Taysom Hill as their starting quarterback. Denver is also coming off a win and has been competitive this season despite the losing record. With the Saints offense nearly intact, we have seen them play well, but the defense has really stepped of late and will take on young Drew Lock who has had some turnover issues this season. The Denver rushing attack has been a solid one with Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay, but they will have their hands full this week against a good Saints run defense. Vegas is looking for this one to be low scoring but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some bigger points this week. However, the Saints touchdown spread is still likely to hold.

New Orleans Saints Analysis

New Orleans SaintsThe Saints will be without two offensive lineman and Drew Brees this week, which is going to be a major hurdle for them to overcome. Taysom Hill certainly played well this week but continuing that pace is a tough ask. Alvin Kamara has generally carried the team in these types of scenarios but had one target last week and Latavius Murray got a lot of the groundwork. Not a huge surprise with that game well in hand and Hill doing well. Kamara has averaged 53 rushing yards and 64 receiving yards per game this season. He has also found the end zone a total of 12 times. Michael Thomas came back in a big way and Hill looked his way often. I like what he has to offer this week as a safety blanket for HIll again. Emmanuel Sanders has been a lead guy when Thomas was out but shifts back to the WR2 role and is going up against his former team. The Saints are averaging 29.5 points per game this season and have been an efficient offense. We will see if Hill can carry that this week. The Saints run defense is very stout and will face a good duo of backs. They have allowed 74.3 yards per game and 3.3 yards per carry on the season.

Denver Broncos Analysis

Denver BroncosDenver has been an up and down team this season averaging 20.6 points per game and allowing 24.3. Overall they have run the ball well, averaging 4.5 yards as a unit, and have averaged 115 yards per game. The run defense isn’t as good as it used to be as they have allowed 4.3 yards per carry and 121 yards per game. Both pass defenses have generally been the same although the Saints have been more opportunistic with 17 interceptions. This is something the Broncos have struggled with this season as Drew Lock has 11 interceptions in eight games but even his replacements have added to the 17 interceptions total. With the covid situation now amongst the Broncos quarterbacks, we wait and see. But Lock has completed just 55% of his passes this season and has not played well. Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick are on their way to 900+ yard seasons at this pace and have been the featured guys in the offense. Noah Fant is a mismatch this week with the Saints struggling against tight ends all year long.

New Orleans are heavy favorites to nobody’s surprise as they head to Denver. Denver is 4-6 but 6-4 ATS this season while the Saints are 5-5. Denver has been a competitive team and depending on the quarterback situation I would expect them to be competitive still here. I like the over in this one as both teams are averaging a combined 49 points this season and defenses are a bit suspect in the secondary where both teams can thrive.

Daily Fantasy Picks

Noah FantInjuries will certainly play a part in how we attack the Denver side of things, but Noah Fant is an intriguing play given the Saints have struggled against tight ends this season. Fant is a solid option in this Broncos offense and Tim Patrick is the other guy who would get a boost if Jerry Jeudy is out. He is still in play in this spot as the Saints secondary is still beatable and the Broncos are going to be in need of some points. As for the Saints, I don’t have a ton of interest in them but they are nice GPP pivots because this isn’t a game that screams fantasy production but we know Alvin Kamara, Emmanuel Sanders, and Michael Thomas can have a strong week.
