New Orleans averted disaster by beating Carolina last week.
The fact that they did it on the road and in reasonably impressive fashion has them installed as road favourites this week.
That is primarily because the Dolphins lost to the Jets last week. A feat many thought was impossible.
Even on the road that is just a bad result. Thought I would expect this line to have some movement during the week.
New Orleans Saints
It is always doom and gloom for teams that start the season 0-2 (though they were not favoured in their first two games). They were not favoured in game three either but won “saving” the season.
The win over Carolina was as complete as it could be. The offense led by Brees was efficient and the defense played very well too.
New Orleans will be an interesting team on offense all season. The quarterback is the given but the rest of the playmakers seems to change from week to week.
They are still trying to figure out what to do with Adrian Peterson. Iam not an expert on these things but he might be done or his “style” is just not what the team is good at.
Look for Smith to really target Travis Kelce in this game, who should be the focal point again on offense.
The Saints are not an elite defense but they played like one against Carolina with four sacks and three interceptions. This week they will play another QB prone to make mistakes.
They will have to tighent things up in run defense. That is the one area Carolina had success and Miami does like to run the ball.
The Saints are still just 1-2 but this is a great spot to try and even that record. There is no reason they can’t win again on the road.
The Dolphins did not just lose to the hapless Jets they were outplayed and the fact that could happen in any environment has to have the Dolphins pretty worried. It was supposed to be a gimme.
The Jets have some players on defense but I did not expect them to completely shutdown the Dolphins rushing attack. Jay Ajayis did not even average 2 yards per carry.
With no running attack to speak of that puts a lot of pressure on Jay Cutler. That is not his strong suit and he did not play well. 44 times he put it in the air.
The New Orleans defense is probably not as good as New York’s but they will be playing with confidence this week.
Against the Jets the Dolphins couldn’t get off the field. New York had the ball for almost 37 minutes and since they were scoring it made it difficult to be balanced. New Orleans will apply even more pressure.
It has not been a good start to the season for the Dolphins who most pegged as the second best team in the AFC East. If they are they have to bounce back this week.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: New Orleans -2.5
There is no way to hide it. The Dolphins los was really bad. Still I was surprised the oddsmakers made New Orleans the favourite.
NFL Free Week 4 Score Prediction: New Orleans 28 – Miami 24
If they were an underdog again I would have been all over New Orleans but I still like them in this spot. I would wait thought. Ithink an even better number is coming.
I think the oddsmakers are gaming this one a little assuming that the market will be way down on Miami to start the week but over time they will calm down a little and bring this one closer to a pick.
