Saints vs. Falcons Betting Odds – Thursday Night Football, Line Moves to NO -1

Written by:
Published on:

The Saints-Falcons game line was very volatile throughout the week, opening at Atlanta -1.5 and moving to New Orleans -1 by Wednesday afternoon.  NOTE AS OF THURSDAY EVENING, THIS LINE HAD MOVED BACK TO FALCONS -2.5

Action on this game had 65% of bets coming in on the Saints at books that had this one as a PICK’EM.  It will be interesting to see where this line ends but should continue trending past New Orleans -2 in order to get action on the Falcons.

The NFL Power Ratings suggest the line should have been New Orleans -1 all along.

As far as the series goes, Atlanta won the last two, New Orleans won the two previous.  It’s difficult to determine which of these two teams have an edge here.  Atlanta is also 2-2 at home in the last four games of this series.

Interestingly enough, the underdog is 13-3 Against The Spread in their last 16 meetings.

This should be a game no matter who comes out on top.  Six of the last ten meetings have been won by six or fewer points.  Both sides are at the top of their game right now.

"They can run," New Orleans head coach Sean Payton said of Dan Quinn's defense. "I think that's the one thing on film. They're fast at all the positions. I think (safety Keanu) Neal has played extremely well. I think they rush the passer very well, and if you get into the third down, (you see) a lot of the things that we saw happen in Seattle (when Quinn was the Seahawks defensive coordinator)."

The Saints could be getting back rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore from a sprained ankle, which would bolster their coverage against Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones. The Saints are yielding just 17.9 points in winning nine of their last 10 games.
