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.

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.

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 9 Betting: Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints Pick and Prediction

In the Monday Night Football Game for Week 9 – the Philadelphia Eagles travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints. Both teams have been disappointing this season through the first half of the season. The Eagles are 3-4, and trail the New York Giants by 2 games in the NFC East. New Orleans has been disappointing, winning just two games thus far. They trail Atlanta and Tampa Bay in the NFC South.

The New Orleans Saints have had all sorts of problems in 2012. The bounty gate started much of it, and it has continued to their defense not being able to get off the field. New Orleans has given up 216 points through 7 games this season. In their most recent loss, the Saints allowed 31 points to the Denver Broncos. In the two games New Orleans has won, the offense had to score 30+ points. New Orleans ranks dead last in yards allowed with over 470 per game. The Saints offense once again is a passing machine. New Orleans is throwing for over 315 yards per game. The top receiver for Drew Brees has been Marques Colston with five touchdowns.

For Philadelphia, they are another team that must find away to get a win. Andy Reid has found himself on the hot seat once again as the head coach of the Eagles. Philadelphia won their first three games by an average of 1.3 points per game. Since then, the Eagles have lost three straight games by 6 per game. The Eagles need Michael Vick to step up behind center. The quarterback has rushed for just one touchdown on the season, which is supposed to be part of his aresenal as a running quarterback. Philadelphia has also seen LeSean McCoy, their running back get into the end zone just twice this season.

Free Prediction and Pick

While both of these teams are struggling, we like one team decidedly over the other. The Philadelphia Eagles are going no where fast. New Orleans, we think may be able to make a final surge and sneak into a tie for wildcard spot by week 17. If the Saints are going to do that, they cannot lose anymore games, especially at home. Look for New Orleans to come out strong and smoke Philadelphia in front of a national audience.

 Prediction: New Orleans Saints 31-20 

 The Philadelphia Eagles will have a tough time covering this spread. They seem to be in too many pieces right now to develop a competitive football team. Drew Brees has a field day, and the Saints defense takes advantage of a beaten up Michael Vick. We like the Saints to win this game by double figures and cover the spread.

Pick: New Orleans Saints -3

This game features two of the elite teams in all of the NFL. While both of these teams have their flaws, it would surprise no one if this was a re-match in the Super Bowl. In the meantime, both teams have alot of work to do, and this win is huge for both. We like the home crowd and the offense of the Giants to come away with the win here. The Steelers seem to be too banged up to give an elite effort against an elite offense.

Prediction: New York Giants 28-21

 The New York Giants are just over a field goal favorite in this game. While we do not expect this to be a blow-out, we feel the Giants are a safe pick. As long as Eli Manning takes care of the football, the Giants should have no problem winning this game. We are going to take the New York Giants -3.5 in this game.

Pick: New York Giants -3.5
