Anytime touchdown scorer: Alvin Kamara (-116)

"The Saints, who feature one of the best receiving backs in the game in Kamara, decided not to throw the ball to him at all last week. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. That should change this week against a Washington defense that just surrendered three receiving touchdowns to Cordarelle Patterson, giving them five receiving TDs allowed to running backs on the season (only three other defenses have allowed even two receiving TDs to backs over the first four games). If Sean Payton watches any film at all of Washington's game last week, Kamara is going to get fed and get into the end zone at least once. I'll leave it up to you whether you want to sprinkle a little on Kamara scoring multiple TDs at +400."

Antonio Gibson Under 50.5 rushing yards (-110)

"The Saints have allowed just 3.1 yards per rush this year, and that number dips even further when you isolate their work against running backs, who have only managed only 203 yards on 71 carries. Clearly there are better ways to move the ball on this unit, especially with Taylor Heinicke continuing to do a solid job as fill-in QB. Making matters worse for Gibson is news that he's playing through a shin fracture, and while the injury is supposedly manageable, it seems like something that could easily get aggravated and knock him out of the game if he does play this week. With star guard Brandon Scherff sidelined, it's going to be even harder to run in this matchup even if Gibson makes it through the game. This total is much lower than his season average for a reason, folks."

Dustin Hopkins Under 6.5 kicking points (-125)

"Despite Hopkins successfully kicking an average of two field goals per game, the juice is weighted on him going under 1.5 field goals due to the injuries on the Washington offense limiting the upside of their point production. But we can get an even better price by taking the Under on his overall kicking points, as he would need four extra points to reach the number if he's not kicking multiple field goals. And considering teams have tried just five extra points against the Saints all year, there seems little chance Hopkins will be tacking on many one-pointers. It may seem a bit boring to play a kicker prop like this, but I think the circumstances line up for this one going Under a good portion of the time."
