How’s that for a vote of confidence? Only 1% of the football experts and analysts polled by NFL Pickwatch are being contrarians and picking the New York Giants to upset the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. Let’s thank them for avoiding the dreaded unanimous-picks curse that just might jinx an easy win.
Still, the Saints shouldn’t sleep on the Giants. Even though they’re 0-3. Even though their coaching staff is engaging in self-sabotage by playing against their roster’s strengths. The NFL is a league where any team can win on any given Sunday, and we’ve seen the Saints botch situations like this before (I’ll be mad about that 2019 Falcons loss after the bye week forever).
Funnily enough, the Saints have only won games they’ve been picked against this year. Two-thirds of the NFL experts liked the Patriots to win last week. An overwhelming 91% majority picked the Packers in the season opener. The only Saints loss this year has come in Week 2, when 87% of experts picked against the Panthers. Let’s hope the Saints break that trend.
