New Orleans Saints vs Detroit Lions: NFL Week 15 Battle in the Bayou

New Orleans Saints vs Detroit Lions: NFL Week 15 Battle in the Bayou
Week 15 of the National Football League schedule closes with a Battle in the Bayou as the New Orleans Saints host the Detroit Lions during Monday Night Football action. Although both teams are eliminated from playoff contention, we expect a high scoring and entertaining clash in the Big Easy tonight. This NFC South versus North contest is slated for 8:30 PM ET on December 21, 2015, at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Figuring the NFL wants a generous dose of prime time excitement, from a pair of teams with a combined 9-17 record, this has the makings of "track meet" style contest.

New Orleans Saints: Possibly playing out the end of era

Still not fully recovered from the 2012 “Bountygate” fiasco, the Sean Payton/Drew Brees era may be coming to close as the 2015 NFL season clicks down. Although he still has two years remaining on his very lucrative contract, rumors abound that Payton, the most successful head coach (91-60) in Saints history, could be “traded” during the offseason. In the here and now, following a skid of four straight losses, by a combined 146-86 margin, New Orleans enters this contest fresh off a 24-17 win in Tampa Bay over the Buccaneers last weekend. Due in part to their injured hobbled 28th ranked rushing attack, it’ll be bombs away for Drew Brees & Crew under the Big Top in the Bayou. 

Detroit Lions: Dismal 1-7 start doomed the Cats season in the Motor City

One has to wonder about the Lions mindset as they roll into the Bayou tonight. Despite a disastrous 1-7 season start, Detroit managed to pull things together as they won three contests by a 81-43 margin and actually had a slight playoff pulse. Following a 27-23 loss to Green Bay, thanks to a QB Aaron Rodgers to TE Richards Rodgers Hail Mary TD pass with no time left on the clock, the Lions season officially flatlined. The hangover from the Packers “Miracle in Motown” seemed to carry over as the Cats looked lifeless during a 21-14 loss to the Rams in St. Louis during Week 14 action. 

New Orleans vs Detroit NFL Week 15 Prediction: This is meeting of top ten passing offenses as the Saints are third with 301 pass yards per game while Detroit is ninth with 286 and both teams have recorded 25 scores through the air. Undecided on who will win this contest, our lean is towards Brees at home in prime time, we turn to the alternate odds posted at Bodog. During their last eight games, New Orleans has scored at least 14 first half points seven times. Give us the OVER on the Saints 13.5 first half points price with a 500 unit wager at Bodog.
