Saints-Colts Daily Fantasy NFL Picks, Betting Odds and Prediction

Gambling911.com has your Saints-Colts Daily Fantasy NFL picks for Week 7. The Colts come into this one as a -4 favorite seeing nearly 80 percent of the action early on.  The line on this game was oddly trending downwards from -5.5.

Not surprisingly, the total on this game was set high at 52.5 suggesting plenty of scoring.  Gambling911.com predicts an easy OVER here.

Indianapolis has scored 27 or more points in three of their last four games.  Both teams rank among the worst when it comes to their respective pass defenses while each offering up a starting quarterback that ranked among the top three best in the league last year.  Yes, they both have lost some of their luster in 2015. Andrew Luck and Drew Brees are in play for your DFS rosters.

The last time these teams faced off against once another was back in 2011 and a lot has changed since then but New Orleans had destroyed Indianapolis in that game 62-7.

What to Consider With the Saints: The Saints have allowed nine touchdown passes to opposing passers through five games.  They allow higher than average number of fantasy points to opposing tight ends. 

What to Consider With the Colts: Rank among the bottom ten against the pass, allowing the 11th-most points to opposing quarterbacks.  They are vulnerable to receivers.  The Colts are tough on opposing running backs. 

Who to Play:

Andrew Luck ($7.6K) – Sure he’s played poorly this season and the current price may be a bit of a turnoff, but we already know from his top 3 fantasy results last year that Luck should break out of this slump any week now.  This will likely be that week against a team that has permitted plenty of touchdowns to opposing teams. 

Luck has completed just 33.8 percent of his passes which traveled at least 10 yards downfield.  Let us not forget Luck was coming off a shoulder injury.

Drew Brees ($7K) – There is better value here than with Luck as Brees appears to have overcome his own shoulder injury.  He completed 30-of-39 passes for 312 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' 31-21, Week 6 win over the Falcons.  In Weeks 4 and 5, Brees flirted with 30 fantasy points.

Brandon Cooks ($5.6K) – Cooks is a solid value this week against a Colts team vulnerable against opposing receivers despite being held below 50 yards receiving in 3-of-6 games.  He caught 4-of-5 targets for 41 yards in New Orleans' Week 6 win over the Falcons.

Coby Fleener ($3K) – Because Fleener is priced so low, will have nominal ownership and goes up against a team that is weak against opposing tight ends, Fleener does offer some degree of value with these near perfect ingredients.  He is not among the more trusted tight ends however.
