The Saints are 0-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC. The Redskins are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games in November and 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Saints are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
The Saints defense is flat out awful to the point I don't know how Rob Ryan still has a job. Also, the Saints are usually a different team on the road than they are in their dome. The Redskins aren't THAT bad of a team and have als won three of their four home games this season.
I'll take the Redskins to win this game.
