10* Atlanta (1:00 ET): The 2019 season couldn't be going more differently for these two NFC South rivals. The Saints, despite Drew Brees missing a majority of the season to date, are on pace for a franchise record 14 wins. They also have the league's longest active ATS win streak at 6 games. Atlanta seems to be inching towards the end of the Dan Quinn era, unless things change drastically in the second half of the season. They're 1-7 SU and are 0-6 SU, 0-5-1 ATS the L6 games. But while recent history may not be on their side, the Falcons are a desperate, double-digit division dog this week. That's a spot we like, especially with Matt Ryan back.
While Atlanta has been the worst bet in the NFL over the L2 seasons (7-17 ATS) w/ a ton of outright losses, they are not a DD dog often. In fact, it's happened only five times in the Matt Ryan era and just once under Quinn. While the Falcons are 0-5 straight up in those games, they've gone 4-1 ATS. The spread for each of Atlanta's first seven games was always four points or less. Were the Falcons to get blown out here, off their bye, things would be REAL ugly for Quinn. Can't see that happening. Ryan being back is huge. Against Seattle two weeks ago, even w/o Ryan, the Falcons outgained the Seahawks 510-322, but lost due to being -3 in turnovers. This team is better than its won-loss record. They're outgaining opponents on both a per play and per game basis!
New Orleans is 7-1 SU, 6-2 ATS. They won every start w/ Teddy Bridgewater starting in place of Brees, but were clearly undervalued in those games. Despite their dominant record, the Saints have five wins by a TD or less. In Brees' return, they did beat the Cardinals 31-9, but that was also a one possession game going into the 4th quarter. They call the pointspread "the great equalizer" for a reason and eventually luck and those ATS results are going to even out. Love the points here. 10* Atlanta
