Re: NO-ATL Spread

Atlanta has problems on both sides of the ball. I'd think that people who gamble would look at their performance before placing a bet:
- "Burner" Turner is not burning anybody. Reggie has better rushing numbers than Turner.
- Ryan didn't look so great against Chicago or Dallas. His o-line all of the sudden is suspect.
- The secondary is not very good.
- Abraham has not even smelled a QB the past 2 games.
- They barely beat a Chicago team at home that "got debacled" by the Bengals.
- The Cowboys, who aren't that good, did a number on them.
- they don't score many points.

Re: NO-ATL Spread

If we keep beating teams by 10 or more points then a 10 point spread isn't unrealistic...our defense has scored in every game I think, if they continue to score we should easily get the spread.

Re: NO-ATL Spread

Already has been said......
But Vegas computed an opening line based on all their know-how. Now the line moves in line with bettors. At the moment, more money is still going on the Saints to beat the spread. I think we will see some reversal once the line gets closer to 2TDs.

Re: NO-ATL Spread

Saints should be able to put up 40 on this team, so the point spread is about right.

Re: NO-ATL Spread

Tobias made a good point; the running game of Atlanta isn't what it was last year, and they know a shoot-out will end up with high point totals for the Saints.
The other factor is that the Falcons' secondary has been performing very similarly to the NY Jets. They're susceptible to big plays and they have undersized corners. Brees loves throwing to his tall boys even when covered, and the Saints usually win those battles.

It's a good matchup for the Saints, but they need to maintain momentum. The Falcons are talented and they've only lost 2 games to quality opponents.
