While Los Angeles has struggled versus New England with a 3-17 mark straight up in the past 20 meetings according to the OddsShark NFL Database, these teams are at different points right now. The Patriots maintain strong plus-550 odds to claim their third Super Bowl title in five years, but have managed to post against the spread wins just twice in their past four home playoff games when favoured by four or fewer points. Unlike last weekend, when there were three games with a spread of a field goal or less, there are none of those this weekend. Look for another upset victory by Los Angeles as Sunday's best bet. There's a chance the Rams could be hosting the NFC Championship Game next weekend as well, which would cause problems if the Coliseum was expected to play host to two games on the same day. New Orleans built its league-leading 13-3 record on a potent offence that averaged 31.5 points per game, and over 34 points per game on home turf.
Foles turned in another magical performance last Sunday in a 16-15 win over the Chicago Bears as 6.5-point road underdogs, throwing the game-winning touchdown pass on a 4th-and-2 play in the final minute. We've got the Saints at home against the Eagles in a rematch that will likely be a lot closer than the regular-season rout between the two.
