Eight members of the New Orleans Saints have tested positive for COVID-19, which puts their availability for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers in jeopardy. (Sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter)

Betting Impact:

New Orleans has actually ticked up from -3 to -3.5 point road favorites (per BettingPros consensus odds), but this is a situation to monitor. Per sources that spoke with ESPN's Adam Schefter, six offensive coaches, one player and a team nutritionist are the members of the organization that have tested positive. Bettors interested in this game should monitor the news of other coaches and players, if anyone else tests positive later in the week or have to quarantine because they were designated as a close contact.
