Drew Brees is on the verge of reaching one of the greatest milestones in NFL history against the Washington Redskins tonight -- With just 201 passing yards, he'll surpass Peyton Manning as the league's all-time leader in passing yards. 


Frankly, a number like 201 yards for a guy like Brees is extremely low, and he would normally have no problem passing it if it weren't for the bigger shadow hanging over tonight's matchup. 


However, it's a larger total that we have our doubts about. Right now, the FanDuel Sportsbook has Brees at +210 odds to pass for over 350 yards. 

Can Brees break the record while putting a little money in your pocket? 


The question isn't about the Saints winning. The Redskins are far from a bad team, but it's hard betting against New Orleans at home, especially against a Redskins defense allowing the fewest yards per game in the league. The Saints are rolling now, winning three straight, and have running back Mark Ingram returning from suspension. 


The pressure to perform might be on the mind of Brees, and it's also worth mentioning that he has eclipsed 350 yards in only half of his games this season. 

It's hard to imagine him getting the opportunity unless the Saints are down big. If that's the case, you might not be winning this bet anyway.
