There is little to no belief in the 0-3 New York Giants heading into Sunday’s matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Can they cover a 7.5-point spread? Sure. Maybe. Can they win the game? Hardly anyone seems to believe that, not even Big Blue View contributors. Here are this week’s picks from national NFL analysts.

  • Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com is going with the Saints to win.
  • Will Brinson of CBS Sports says the Giants are “just terrible,” and of course picks the Saints to win.
  • The Sporting News is picking New Orleans.
  • All five Sports Illustrated analysts are picking the Saints.
  • FOX Sports says the Giants will cover the spread and might even win.
  • Bleacher Report believes the Saints will win, but five of six analysts are taking the Giants to cover.
  • At The Athletic, all five analysts are taking the Saints.
  • At ESPN, all 11 analysts are taking New Orleans to win.
  • At Pro Football Talk, both Mike Mike Florio and Michael David Smith are taking the Saints.
  • FiveThirtyEight gives the Giants just a 21 percent chance of pulling off an upset.
