Cowboys vs. Saints 2013 picks and predictions: New Orleans favored at home

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

Experts are picking the New Orleans Saints to best the Dallas Cowboys in their Week 10 matchup.

The Dallas Cowboys will face their toughest game this season in Week 10, when they travel to the Superdome to take on the New Orleans Saints. Dallas (5-4) is first in the NFC East, to the surprise of many, but the Cowboys are going to have their hands full with the Saints (6-2). The Saints are plenty motivated to win this one, with tough outings against the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks on the horizon.

The Cowboys have beaten some solid opponents this year, but they've given up an awful lot of points. They have the No. 31 pass defense, which is definitely not a good matchup against Drew Brees and the No. 3 passing offense in the league. Brees throws for 334 yards per game, on average.

Brees is even better in the Superdome, making this an easy choice for experts. The SB Nation NFL experts unanimously picked the Saints to win this one. That panel consists of Ryan Van Bibber, Joel Thorman, Jason Chilton, Stephen White, David Fucillo and Matt Ufford.

Similarly, all eight of CBS Sports' experts picked the Saints to win. Their panel includes beat writers such as Jason La Canfora, Will Brinson and Pete Prisco.
