The Atlanta Falcons opened week three as three-point underdogs to their rivals, the New Orleans Saints. The line has shifted, however, and Atlanta is now only a 2.5 point underdog to the Saints.

Other numbers of note, the over/under for the game sits at 53.5, according to most books. The Saints and Falcons are both 1-1 against the spread this season, as well.

Both teams are banged up but the Saints loss of Terron Armstead and Delvin Breaux looms larger than the Falcons injuries—even though the health of Atlanta’s top two wide receivers are win question.
