The New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals collide in week 15 with little at stake save for pride. Here’s how we line up our NFL picks.

New Orleans Saints vs Arizona Cardinals

Point Spread Value

The New Orleans Saints can't seem to get any semblance of momentum going. From week to week NFL betting fans have absolutely no idea what to expect from the Saints, which makes betting on them a bit of a risky play. Nevertheless, we're chancing it in this clash for week 15 NFL picks. The Cardinals aren't exactly a model of consistency either and struggling something awful. Saints are 7-5-1 ATS with a 0.5 winning margin and +0.2 differential versus the spread. The Cardinals are 4-9-0 ATS with a 1.7 winning margin and -2.5 differential versus the spread.

The Survivor

Betting on the Saints or Cardinals to win outright is an exercise in frustration for their respective fans. The Saints are 5-8-0 SU and 2-4-0 SU on the road. The Cardinals are 5-7-1 SU and 4-2-1 SU at home. Consider the Cardinals are at home and the Saints are beatable this could be a close game the Cardinals eke out. But don't go betting the farm on it with your week 15 NFL picks.

Game Total

The Cardinals are 7-6-0 in O/U betting while the Saints are 6-7-0 in O/U betting. It's interesting to note the Saints are putting up an average of 27.5 points per game while the Cards are putting up just 23 points per game. The Saints defense is conceding in almost equal measure while the Cards defense is allowing 21 points per game. Having said that four of the last five New Orleans games have cashed on the UNDER while four of the last five Arizona games have cashed on the OVER. It's a tossup, in other words.

Free NFL Pick: Over 50 (-110)
