New Orleans Saints receiver Jarvis Landry has been ruled out for the third straight game with a foot/ankle injury. Tonight on Thursday Night Football, the Saints are forced to turn to Chris Olave, Marquez Callaway and Tre'Quan Smith at receiver with both Landry and Michael Thomas out for Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Saints are currently underdogs on the road in this game, as the team is also down one of its best defensive players in cornerback Marshon Lattimore.

Even though the Cardinals and Saints have both underperformed so far this season, Vegas thinks the Cardinals are in a better spot to win this Thursday Night Football game.

Landry signed with the Saints this offseason after spending the past few seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He's seen 21 targets over the team's first four games of the season, catching 15 of those passes for 168 yards.

His best game came in Week 1 when he reeled in seven of his nine looks for 114 yards. After that he received just 12 targets in the next three games.

Olave is my favorite pick to replace Landry and Thomas, as he'd already received more targets than Landry from Week 2 on. I love betting on Olave as an anytime touchdown scorer in this game, as he'd reached the end zone in Weeks 4 and 5 before missing Week 6 with a concussion.

The Saints certainly would love to have Landry back in the lineup soon, as he and Thomas are two of the games more effective receivers out of the slot. With Jameis Winston banged up and Andy Dalton expected to start in Week 7, bettors should temper their expectations for this New Orleans offense on a short week.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
