Upset of the Week
New Orleans Saints (+3) over Chicago Bears
The Saints will be a slight underdog in this game, but don’t expect that to slow them down. They are going to have plenty of weapons to counter the Bears defense. The only thing that could slow them down is if Teddy Bridgewater can’t get the ball to his playmakers. The Saints defense should be able to contain the Bears offense throughout, so it will come down to the playmakers making plays. I think the Saints offense has just enough to come into Solider Field and leave with a victory.
Lock of the Week
San Francisco 49ers (-10) over Washington Redskins
San Francisco has a stellar defense and an offense that can put up points when it needs to. Washington has neither of those. San Fran has been rolling through their schedule this season and this should be another game they cruise to victory in. I don’t see Washington putting up many points at all against this 49er defense, and offensively, Jimmy G should be able to rally the troops to cover this spread without much question.
