The Washington Redskins will face the New Orleans Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday September 9, 2012 for week 1 of the NFL regular season. With a record breaking contract with QB Drew Brees, the Saints are favorites at home to win their first game of the season.
New Orleans is home favorite with a point spread of -10 along a total over-under line of 50½ points.
Brees and the Saints agreed to a five-year, $100 million contract with a record breaking $60 million in guaranteed money.
The 33 year old quarterback passed for 5476 yards and 46 touchdowns last season, his best numbers in the NFL so far.
Washington drafted Heisman Trophy winner and former Baylor QB Robert Griffin III bringing high expectations among Redskins fans.
The Saints finished first in the NFC South last season with an overall of 13-3 along a record against the football spread of 12-4, becoming one of the most profitable teams in football betting in the past NFL campaign.
The Redskins would like to erase the memory of a less than glorious season after finishing at the bottom of the NFC East with a record of 5-11 and 7-9 ATS.
These two teams last met on September 14, 2008 when the Redskins at home defeated the Saints with a score of 29-24 with bets on Washington covering the point spread of -1 while the game went over the total line of 43 points.
