New Orleans vs. Atlanta,
01/01/2017 16:25 EDT,
Score: 32 - 38
Point Spread: +8/-105 New Orleans
*4 Star NFL ATS Play of Week* The New Orleans Saints have shown that they aren't giving up on the season. New Orleans won at Arizona two weeks ago and then won at home last week against a Tampa Bay team with more to play for.
I think the Saints will put in a good effort here against an Atlanta Falcons team that they really don't like. These two rivals typically play very hard against each other, and the underdog has been the way to go in this series.
Atlanta certainly has a lot to play for here, but the Falcons defense gives up quite a bit, and the Saints are obviously a very good indoor team. I think both teams score a lot here. The backdoor could be open as well with the Saints scoring potential.
The underdog is a perfect 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings between these two teams. The Falcons are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 January games. The Saints are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. A 14-0 angle.
Take New Orleans.
