Today's Best Bet: Sunday, January 13


Leigh Copson: Back Michael Thomas to score anytime & New Orleans Saints to win @ 13/10 Ladbrokes

Can you say déjà vu? Nick Foles is once again in control of the Philadelphia Eagles offense, due to an injury to Carson Wentz, and once again they are marching in the postseason. The Eagles upset the Chicago Bears a week ago, courtesy of a late touchdown and Cody Parkey’s infamous ‘Double Doink’ missed field goal in the final seconds, to book their place in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, and fans are dreaming of back-to-back Super Bowl successes for the franchise.

However, Philadelphia could not have asked for a much tougher assignment on Sunday night that a trip to the Superdome to face the New Orleans Saints. They have done that once already this season and they were, quite frankly, humiliated by Drew Brees & Co. as they slumped to a 48-7 defeat. The Eagles have improved since that Week 11 embarrassment, but have they really improved to the point where they can knock off a Saints team that are the number one seeds in the NFC half of the playoff bracket?

My answer to that question, as you will know from my Divisional Round betting tips preview, is no. To stop the Saints you are going to need an excellent defense and that is something the Eagles do not boast. They have done a decent job despite being obliterated by injuries, but this New Orleans offense is a gigantic step up from the units they have faced during their good run of form that has seen them win six of their last seven. New Orleans can beat you on the ground and through the air, with Brees being able to call upon the services of a whole host of weapons as he looks to guide the offense downfield and into the endzone.

It is not simply a matter of will they score a touchdown – more a case of how many will they score and who will provide them? Alvin Kamara is a name that immediately stands out due to his 14 rushing TDs and four receiving scores, but the odds on him scoring a touchdown in a Saints win are short and I am looking for a better return. That is why I am going with Michael Thomas – he racked up 92 yards and a touchdown as the Saints ran riot against Philadelphia in November and he has scored six TDs at the Superdome this season. Number seven could come in a Saints win here.
