The Falcons and the Saints have had very different seasons. At 7-2, the Saints are looking forward to making some noise in the playoffs. At 3-6, the Falcons are on the outside looking in, hoping to build towards a better future.
No matter how these teams have fared so far, it’s always a good time when they face off. Tempers flare and bad life decisions are made. Sean Payton will inevitably do something sketchy and the game itself may get a little chippy. All in all, no matter the result, it should be a good time. And if the Falcons somehow manage to pull off a win, we’ll have fun watching Saints fans blame the refs and/or make tired 28-3 jokes on Twitter. It truly is a win-win.
Let’s take a quick look at what the odds makers are saying about Sunday’s game.
The Saints are currently tabbed as 5 point favorites, notwithstanding the fact that Drew Brees is one nasty hit away from forced retirement. The over/under is set at 51.5, with roughly 53 percent of betters taking the under.
Both the Falcons and the Saints are 4-5 against the spread this season. That said, the Falcons are 3-1 against the spread in road games this season and the Saints are 2-3 against the spread at home this season. Sadly the Falcons are just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 head to head matchups with the Saints.
