New Orleans Saints vs. Philadelphia Eagles Betting Odds

New Orleans Saints vs. Philadelphia Eagles betting odds are being influenced by injury, more specifically that of Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.  Few books were offering a line on this game because of the injury question but SBG Global was one of the few that had odds.  SBG had this one listed as a PICK.

Both teams played some of the best football last week.

Drew Brees' six passing touchdowns helped the Saints score 45 points -- the most in a Week 1 game in franchise history.

"I had a lot of opportunities out there. A lot of guys made some big plays in this game. Unfortunately you always think about the ones that got away," said Brees, who shares a franchise mark set by Billy Kilmer in 1969. "There was probably one or two more that we left out there. That's what keeps you coming back."

Two of Brees' touchdown passes went to Jeremy Shockey, who hadn't scored since being traded from the New York Giants to New Orleans last season.

"It's good to get that asterisk off my name that I haven't ever scored a touchdown" with the Saints, Shockey said. "Being around a guy like Drew makes it so easy out there because he works so hard. If I get there at 6:10, he's there at 6:05. He's that kind of a guy."

Five different Saints had receiving touchdowns, including Jeremy Shockey, who had his second career multi-TD game after having none last year.

Then there was the Eagles who crushed Carolina on the road, but that victory came with a price.

Donovan McNabb completed 10-of-18 passes for 79 yards with two touchdowns and an interception before leaving with a rib injury.  It was not immediately known when he would be back, though he could still play in Week 2.

The Eagles rushed for 185 yards, a mark they reached just twice in 2008.

Philadelphia beat New Orleans by a score of 38-23 back in 2007 as a +3 underdog.  Philadelphia is 8-2 in this series but two of the last three games were won by New Orleans, both of which were played at home.  The stats really go against the Saints in this game but New Orleans could very well have what it takes to win here.
