Saints vs. Jets 2013 odds: New Orleans getting love

Christian Petersen

Drew Brees and the boys are expected to win away from home in Week 8.

The New Orleans Saints and New York Jets will do battle on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Sean Payton and his visitors from the Big Easy are favored by 5.5 points, according to The over/under is 45.5.

New Orleans comes into the contest at 6-1, fresh off a trouncing of the Buffalo Bills at the Mercedes Benz Superdome. The Jets enter with a decidedly different feeling after being crushed 49-9 by the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Saints are trying to run away with the NFC South, leading over the second-place Carolin Panthers by two games, and the Jets are simply hoping to stay in the AFC playoff picture. At 4-4, they remain two games behind the New England Patriots in the AFC East but are right in the thick of the six-seed race. New York only trails the San Diego Chargers by a half-game.
