Saints vs Packers Preseason Game Info

2022 NFL Preseason Game
New Orleans Saints (0-1) vs. Green Bay Packers (0-1)
Date: Friday, August 19, 2022
Time: 8 p.m. ET
Venue: Lambeau Field — Green Bay, WI

Week 2 of the NFL preseason includes a showdown between the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers. The Saints are coming off a largely uneventful loss to the Houston Texans, resulting in a 17-13 final score. Head coach Dennis Allen said after the game that he wants to get things "clean up," making it interesting to see if the Saints start stronger.

Meanwhile, the Packers are also coming off a loss to open their preseason. The majority of Green Bay's key starters were absent for the 28-21 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, but that should be different this time around.

Saints vs Packers Prediction & Pick

This matchup is between two teams who haven't performed well in the preseason recently as far as spread trends are concerned. Both the Saints and Packers are 1-6 against the spread (ATS) in their last seven exhibition games, so it appears to be a matchup that could go either way.

Playing at home is an advantage for some teams and that's exactly the case for the Packers. Green Bay is 13-2 straight up in its last 15 home games against New Orleans, upping the pressure on the Saints to win at Lambeau Field.

Given that Packers head coach Matt LaFleur also has more experience than his counterpart, Allen, I could see Green Bay having a slight advantage here. It should be a relatively close contest that sees the Packers coming out on top.

Final Score Prediction: Packers: 24 | Saints: 18

While the Packers have easily handled the Saints in recent years, that hasn't always been the case as far as the spread is concerned. New Orleans is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games against Green Bay, making the spread something to potentially avoid if you're expecting a Packers victory.

Keeping that in mind, both teams have enough firepower to potentially hit the over here. In fact, the total has actually hit the over in 13 of the last 16 Saints vs. Packers meetings.

Bet: Over 38.5 Points (-110)
