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.

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
