In first divisional round of NFL playoff games, the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles will face off on the gridiron, hoping to advance to the next round and keep their dream of the Super Bowl alive.

Who's Predicted to Win the Game?

The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl for the 2017 season after defeating the New England Patriots 41-33. During the 2018 regular season, the Eagles won nine games and lost seven. The Saints haven't won a Super Bowl since 2009, however, they finished first in their division during the 2018 season, winning 13 games and losing only three.

On November 11, the two teams faced off in New Orleans and the Saints blew out the Eagles 48-7. Since that game, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz sustained a back injury, bringing Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles to lead the team as the quarterback.

When it comes to Sunday's matchup, Odds Shark predicted the game would favor New Orleans, who would win with 26 points compared to the Eagles' predicted 19 points. Odds Shark also placed the betting line at -9 in favor of the Saints.

A fun fact of the game is that Foles and Saints quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees attended the same high school, Westlake High School, in Austin, Texas, albeit a few years apart.

Next Sunday’s game will mark the first time in @NFL history that two Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks from the same high school will face each other in a playoff game. #FolesvsBrees #ChapMagic #GoChaps

Although they graduated more than a decade apart from each other, the two quarterbacks developed a relationship and Brees sent some calming words to Foles before the Super Bowl in 2018.

"There's a lot of things going on, pregame, a longer pregame, a big halftime show, but at the end of the day when you're out there, the game will settle down and it'll just be football," Foles told The New Orleans Advocate Brees sent him in a text message.

The winner of the Eagles vs. Saints game will go on to play the winner of the game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys, who play on Saturday.
