Point Spread: -3/-130 New England
4* NFLX SMASH on New England Patriots -3
This is a solid situation for the Pats as they get a New Orleans team at home that just played Sunday night. Plus, New England typically starts fast in the preseason. It has come away victorious in its last 3 preseason openers and only has 1 ATS loss in its last 12 NFLX contests (8-1-3 ATS L12 NFLX).
Its preseason success has a lot to do with superior coaching (Belichick) and great depth at key positions. I like New England's depth at quarterback and receiver over New Orleans'.
Last season ended in major disappointment for the Pats. They'll be hungry to take the field tonight.
