NFL Football Betting Odds:
The Falcons fly into this Week 12 contest sporting a 4-6 record that pegs them as the 2nd worst team in the NFC South. Entering this Thursday night matchup with a 2-game losing streak, Atlanta is focused on getting the rebound over a divisional rival. Unfortunately the Saints handled Atlanta pretty well early in the season, delivering a 43-37 finish over their NFC South rivals. On top of that, the NFL football betting odds aren’t giving Atlanta much of a shot. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Atlanta will have a hard time keeping up with the brilliance of New Orleans’ offense. Right now the Falcons are scoring 26.3 per game, which doesn’t come close to matching the 37.8 that New Orleans deliver. Defensively the Falcons are at a surprising disadvantage as well. Right now the Falcons are giving up 27.6 to their opponents while New Orleans only gives up 23.9.
Players to Watch: Matt Ryan (3,306 passing yards, 22 TD, 4 INT), Tevin Coleman (500 rushing yards, 2 TD, 1 F), and Julio Jones (1,158 passing yards, 3 TD, 73 REC).
New Orleans Saints
The Saints march into this Week 12 contest flashing a 9-1 record that ranks them as the best team in the division. But with the 6-4 Carolina Panthers hot on the Saints’ tail, New Orleans can’t afford too many slip ups in the coming weeks. All in all the Saints are 5-5 in their last 10 meetings against the Falcons. However, given the narrative of this season, it’s clear that New Orleans shouldn’t have too hard of a time taking care of Atlanta at home. Especially since New Orleans enters this Thanksgiving Day matchup riding a 9-game winning streak.
Players to Watch: Drew Brees (2,964 passing yards, 25 TD, 1 INT), Alvin Kamara (617 rushing yards, 11 TD, 0 F), and Michael Thomas (1,042 receiving yards, 8 TD, 82 REC).
