The Atlanta Falcons (10-1) looks to avenge their only loss of the season when they take on the New Orleans Saints (5-6) at home on Thursday at 8:20 ET. NFL odds are located at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Saints shot themselves in the foot last Sunday by allowing a couple of defensive touchdowns in their loss to San Fran. For the season, they are 5-6 SU and 6-5 ATS, but are still very much in the hunt for the final wild card spot down the stretch. After a terrible start, they were playing better before last week’s loss, having now won three of their last four.
Atlanta has won two straight since their loss to the Saints, and now get a crack at them on their home turf. Atlanta is getting the typical respect a 10-1 team would get, as they have looked bad at times, and barely defeating weaker opponents. For the season, they are 10-1 SU and 6-4-1 ATS, having gone 0-2-1 ATS in their past three.
Atlanta is a 3 ½ point home favorite with revenge. It is tough to beat a team twice, especially when that team is 10-1, but the Saints possess matchup issues for the Falcons. Take the Saints +3 ½ at the sports book.
