Why the New Orleans Saints are a good bet -5 ½?
The Falcons beat New Orleans 26-9. Although it looks bad on paper, the Saints got caught up with the wrong game plan. Because Andrus Peat left the game early, New Orleans struggled to stop Atlanta’s pass rush. The Falcons sacked Drew Brees 6 times. The Saints will have a different game plan heading to Tampa. Either Peat plays, or Sean Payton puts together a plan that involves running towards the strength of the offensive line. Either way, the Saints should win and cover.
