NFL Week 10 Betting: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints Pick and Prediction

On Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints will get together in a huge NFC Sotuh affair. The Falcons come into the game as the lone undefeated team remaining in the National Football League. New Orleans, who was a pick by many to get to the Super Bowl out of the NFC have won just three of their first eight games. This game has turned into a must win for the home Saints on Sunday.

New Orleans is coming off a big win over Philadelphia last Sunday Night. The Saints needed the win to stay just two games behind in the NFC wildcard hunt. The Saints are not looking for the NFC South title, as they are five games behind the Falcons. New Orleans continues to be one of the top passing teams in all of the league with 305.4 yards per game. The defense for the Saints has been frustrating for the team, as they rank as the worst defensive team in the league; allowing 470 yards per game. The Saints leading scorer has been Marques Colston with six touchdown receptions on the season.

Many have questioned whether the Falcons are the best team in the league or not. Regardless, Atlanta is the lone unbeaten team. The Falcons are coming off a 19-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys last week. The previous week, Atlanta knocked off the Philadelphia Eagles. Matt Ryan has put his name into MVP contention with over 2,300 yards and 17 touchdowns on the season. Ryan’s top target has been Roddy White, with 47 receptions. Julio Jones is the leading touchdown scorer for Atlanta with six on the season. Michael Turner has led the running game with 514 yards and 4 touchdowns through eight games. Atlanta is playing in their fifth road game of the season; winning them all by 7 or more.

  • New Orleans Saints +2.5

Free Prediction and Pick

This should be a thrilling football game. The Saints have got to do whatever they can do to find a way to win this game. The Falcons offense has been spectacular, and team that with a porous Saints defense, and that’s not a recipe for success. But, despite that, we look for Drew Brees to pull off some home magic and find a way to pick up a Saints win. New Orleans comes away with a one point win in this one.

 Prediction: New Orleans Saints 31-30

The Saints are a home underdog, which is something that you do not see very often. New Orleans is +2.5 coming into the game. Look for both teams to play well on the offensive side, but the defenses struggle. We like the Saints to cover the spread, and even win this game. Look for New Orleans moneyline and take a long hard look.

 Pick: New Orleans Saints +2.5

NFL Week 8 Betting: Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles Pick and Prediction

In one of the best games of Week 8 – the Atlanta Falcons will go on the road to take on the Philadelphia Eagles. The Falcons are the only unbeaten team in all of the National Football League. Atlanta is 6-0, and in first place in the NFC South. The Falcons hold a four game lead over New Orleans and Tampa Bay. Philadelphia is 3-3 as well, and tied with Washington and the Cowboys for second place in the NFC East. The Eagles have won three very close games thus far in 2012. The Falcons and Eagles are both coming off their bye week.

Philadelphia will look for ways to aide in Michael Vick not turning the football over. In 6 games this season, Vick has turned the ball over 14 times. The Eagles have been able to move the football, but unable to put points on the board. The Eagles have scored just 103 points in six games, the lowest in the NFL. Philadelphia has lost two straight before the bye; to Pittsburgh and Detroit.

The Atlanta Falcons feel their quarterback Matt Ryan is a candidate for the MVP through the first six games of the season. Ryan has completed 160 of 236 passes for 1,700+ yards and 14 touchdowns. Ryan has several weapons, including running back Michael Turner, along with veteran tight end Tony Gonzalez and receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White. Atlanta faces a tough stretch of their schedule which sees them take on Dallas and New Orleans in the next two weeks.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • Atlanta Falcons +1
  • Philadelphia Eagles -1

Free Prediction and Pick

This should be a heck of a football game. The Falcons are not going to want to go easy, while Philadelphia feels they have alot of proving to do. Michael Vick will be going up against his old team in this one. The Eagles are the worst offensive scoring team in all of the league, but we like that to change. Atlanta has shown vulnerable to teams passing on them, so look for Vick and company to take advantage of that. We are going to say Philadelphia comes away with a home win in this game, moving Falcons to the world of beaten teams.

Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles 27-24

The Philadelphia Eagles are actually the favorites in this game. That is a bit surprising, with the Falcons being the top ranked team in the NFL within power rankings. The Eagles have been a disappointment, and have had a terrible time taking care of the ball. Obviously that is a huge key in this game. Look for the Eagles to have better ball control, and come out on top in this game. We are taking the favorite – Philadelphia Eagles wo tin this game, and cover the single point spread.

Pick: Philadelphia Eagles -1

NFL Week 8 Betting: New England Patriots at St. Louis Rams Pick and Prediction

On Sunday afternoon, the New England Patriots will take on the St. Louis Rams. In what was supposed to be a home game for the Rams, has turned into a game at Wembley Stadium in London. The Rams come into the game losers of two straight games, and are 3-4 overall. New England picked up a win over the New York Jets on Sunday, and lead the AFC East with a 4-3 record.

The St. Louis Rams started the season winning three of their first five, and all three of their home games. After a tight loss in Miami, and then a home loss to the Packers, the Rams are desperate to find a win. St. Louis has been solid on the defensive end, but have difficulty scoring touchdowns. Sam Bradford, in his third year as the quarterback has thrown for 1,590 yards and 7 touchdowns. Steven Jackson has struggled to get into the end zone as well, as he picked up his first rushing touchdown in week 7. The Rams receiver Danny Amendola is questionable for the game after missing the last two games. Amendola is tied with Brandon Gibson, with two touchdown receptions. St. Louis will come home after the game against the Patriots, and then take their bye week. Following that, the Rams play at San Francisco.

For the Patriots, they hold a 1/2 game lead over Miami and a full game over the Bills and Jets. New England is one of the top offensive teams, as they rank both fifth in rushing offense and passing offense. The Patriots are led by Steven Ridley in the run game. The running back has rushed for nearly 600 yards and 4 touchdowns. Rob Gronkowski is the touchdown leader for New England, with five. The Patriots have not been a very good passing defense team, as they are allowing 29 yards per game, which is 29th in all of the NFL. New England will head into their bye week following the trip home from London.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • St. Louis Rams +7

Free Prediction and Pick

This game may be closer than many people expect. Look for this game to stay within a possession for much of the game. In the end, it will be tough for the Rams to keep up with the Patriots for the entire 60 minutes. We are going to say Tom Brady and the Patriots pull away at the end with a win.

Prediction: New England Patriots 28-20

Interesting line – as the New England Patriots are a 7 point favorite in this game. The Rams have been pretty good against the spread, winning 5 of 7. New England hasn’t been as good, especially lately. Look for this line to be about right, but in the end, the Patriots cover by just a point.

Pick: New England Patriots -7
