The Falcons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a bye week, 5-17 ATS in their last 22 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Saints are 6-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 17-8 ATS in their last 25 vs. NFC South and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Falcons are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings in New Orleans and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 10-4 in Saints last 14 vs. NFC. The over is 4-1 in Falcons last 5 road games.
The Atlanta Falcons are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a double-digit underdog. The New Orleans Saints are 7-5 ATS in their last 12 games as a double-digit favorite. The Falcons have had an extra week to prepare for this game and are more talented than their record shows, but this team can't figure things out and have had countless chances. At this point guys probably have checked out. The New Orleans Saints have a healthy Brees in the fold and that Saints defense seems to be getting better each week. The Saints are also a team that isn't afraid to rub it in at times. This game is likely going to get very, very ugly.
