Marcus Williams and Marshon Lattimore also make up a big chunk of the New Orleans secondary at 86 and 85 overall.
This game is exactly what these sim matchups have become, pretty much coin flips that could go either way. With that said, this seems like a very low total even in the high-50s, for a pair of teams that could hit 30 against almost any team in these sim games. I think this game could be somewhere in the area of 45-38, so I’ll side with the over in this spot.
