As unlikely as it may seem, Juwan Johnson will have plenty of fans in Ontario cheering him on when the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals kick off Week 7 of the NFL tonight.

They hope the Saints wide receiver scores not once, but twice.

Johnson, 26, undrafted, has played 27 games — just eight as a starter — since entering the NFL with the Saints in 2020.

He visited the end zone four times, all last season.

With the Saints missing injured starters Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry for tonight’s game, he should have a chance to do it again.

This must be what FanDuel bettors are betting on.

In the early afternoon, Johnson was the popular long bet with FanDuel in the To Score 2+ Touchdowns market at +3500, just ahead of Arizona’s DeAndre Hopkins as the highest bet player.

FanDuel also reports that the Hopkins Receiving Yards OVER was a hugely popular game, with over 95% of bets and stakes on the OVER, which was pushed from 58.5 to 62.5.

Hopkins, one of the NFL’s elite receivers, is making his season debut after serving a six-game suspension.

Meanwhile, FanDuel bettors are among the favorites in the handicap market, which is down to Cardinals -2.5.

About 72% of the stakes are on Arizona.

The most important correct score is Cards 14, Saints 7.
