New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons NFL Week 13 Odds

New Orleans Saints NFL Week 13 Odds

New Orleans Saints NFL Betting

There has been a noticeable improvement for the Atlanta Falcons since Raheem Morris was elevated to interim head coach after the firing on Dan Quinn. Atlanta remains one of the best passing attacks in pro football with Matt Ryan and Calvin Ridley. If not for a defense that has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory on at least three occasions the Falcons would be in the thick of the NFC playoff race. And while the defense remains nowhere near where it eventually needs to be it has improved since the coaching change. The big question going forward is who will become the permanent head coach for 2021. Morris would certainly like a second chance as an NFL head coach after flaming out after three seasons in that role with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And if the Falcons keep improving and showing good compete levels, he may get his chance.

New Orleans Saints Week 12 Recap

The New Orleans Saints proved that timing is everything last Sunday when they faced a Denver Broncos team that had its entire quarterback corps shelved by the pandemic. New Orleans won 31-3 as whopping 17-point road favorites with the game going under the total of 36.5.

The Saints are now 9-2 straight up, 6-5 against the spread, and 7-4 over the total. New Orleans leads the NFC South by 2.5 games over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Saints rank 5th in the NFL for scoring offense and first for overall defense.

Following a tumultuous offseason and sluggish start to the 2020 campaign the New Orleans Saints have been one of the hottest teams in the NFL and on the board. What is most encouraging is that the Saints defense has shown significant improvement in recent weeks which has had a direct effect on their improved betting value. Of course, the big question is when Drew Brees will return to the field and how well he can play when he does.
