Falcons Preview: May Be A Good Game To Lose
The Falcons, have been a very disappointing team so far this season. It is clear that the Matt Ryan era is almost over in Atlanta and they are looking to begin their rebuild. With star wide receiver Calvin Ridley being out indefinitely for personal reasons, there is not much hope left for the Saints this season. They will likely be trying to lose as many games as possible to wrap up the year as their hopes at playoff contention are gone.
Saints Preview: A Must Win Game For Playoff Implications
The Saints have had a very impressive season up to this point. They have transitioned from Drew Brees’s departure seamlessly and their defense has really stepped up to win them some games.
This is something they will once again have to do against the Falcons. The Saints’ offense will have to rely on Alvin Kamara to get things done for them on offense with Jameis Winston possibly being out for the remainder of the regular season at least. However, with Kamara being one of the top running backs in the NFL, this is something that he is more than capable of.
Odds & Free Betting Analysis for This NFL Game
Just looking at the records of the two teams, you would think this should be a blowout victory by the Saints. However, with the uncertainty at the quarterback position, it may be closer than expected. Despite this, the Saints are still more than capable of winning this game by double digits. As a result of this, we are taking the Saints on the spread and moneyline.
The over-under is another very interesting situation for this game. We are predicting the over in hopes that this will be one of the games that Kamara is able to completely take over the game and leave the contest with two or more touchdowns. If he is able to achieve this, the over will easily hit.
