That game makes no sense to me.
How the hell is a 3-1 team a dog to an 0-4 team, even if they are playing in the Dome? I'm pulling for the Saints, but I aint falling for that bet.
While the defense has been quite shitty, New Orleans could have very well won all of their games (except @ Carolina).
-Lost by one possession (while driving) to Washington
-Lost by a FG in overtime after a rare offensive implosion in the 2nd half
-Lost by one possession because of a random dropped ball by sproles on third down, then a weird series of penalties after making a kick that would have put them in the lead against Green Bay
I think people are seeing this. 0-4 yes, but one possession away each game from being 3-1. Vegas has Saints' homefield advantage worth 3.5 points so on a neutral field they technically would be half point dogs.
Gotta look deeper than the record sometimes.
ETA: Took the Raiders in week 1 to massively implode for SD to win.
Week 2 - they beat a very crappy Tenn team
Week 3 - Lost at home against their only competition thus far this season Atlanta (27-3)
Week 4 - Beat a very shitty KC team
The Chargers' 3-1 record doesn't look so hot after typing that out. Only thing they have on us, is that they beat Kansas City and we didn't.
This game is closer than it looks.
