Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints Odds, Prediction, and Pick
What a Monday Night Football match-up we have just after Christmas. The Atlanta Falcons and their lead in the Wild Card race will head on the road to take on a quarterback in Drew Brees who is having one of the best seasons in history, and his incredibly strong New Orleans Saints team. The Falcons and Saints have met once this year already, and it resulted in a 26-23 win for the Saints on the road. The Falcons will definitely have their work cut out for them, as the Saints playing on prime time television are a scary thought for almost any team in the entire NFL. This Saints team is 11-3 overall, and are almost sitting as a lock to win the NFC South. The team has won six games straight after a confusing loss to the St. Louis Rams. The Saints are out to prove that they can pull off another Super Bowl, and this team definitely has the talent to do so.

As far as the Falcons go, they are in a "win and your in" situation this Monday. If the Falcons are able to knock off New Orleans on the road, they lock up one of those Wild Card spots at a minimum. The Falcons have been impressive in their own right, as the team has won four of their last five, and seven of their last nine as well. When it comes to top offenses in the NFL, these two teams are definitely mentioned at the top. When you get to see players like Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Marques Colston, Roddy White, Julio Jones, Michael Turner, Darren Sproles, and many more, you can bet that there will be some points put up on the board.
Kickoff is set for 8:35pm EST on Monday, and we'll be ready. On top of that, we love our free sports betting pick in this game, so let's take a look at the match-up a bit more!

Betting against the New Orleans Saints to win a game on prime time TV? Most people would say no, and I'd agree with not betting against this team to win the game. I think that the Saints will get the job done at home, but I think it'll be much closer than anticipated. The Saints have a high flying offense, but the thing that many people are overlooking is the fact that the Falcons have quite a bit to play for in this game. I'm seeing a close one throughout, with the Saints getting the job done at the end of the day by a narrow margin. I'll take the Saints by a field goal here.

Just because I won't bet against the Saints to WIN the game at home, definitely doesn't mean that I won't bet against them to cover the spread. The Falcons are getting a good amount of points, and I'd love this one if I could get it at +7 or even more, but I'll take it at +6.5. Matt Ryan is poised to have a big game against this Saints secondary, and I think they'll do more than enough to get the cover. So I'm going with the Saints to win, but my pick is the Falcons to cover the +6.5.
Atlanta Falcons +6.5
