NFL Betting: Saints Regain Their Coach And Their Identity In Opener Versus Falcons

Posted by Stan Simmons on 9/7/2013 2:29:28 AM

After a hellish year in 2012, the New Orleans Saints will get back head coach Sean Payton. Now, the team and organization can move forward. A big season opener awaits for this ballclub.

Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints – Sunday, September 8

Sports betting line: Saints -3

Why Atlanta Will Win

This is a situation in which the Falcons are going to want to prove that their division championship and subsequent NFC Championship Game performance last season were not flukes attributable to the New Orleans Saints’ various punishments. Atlanta wants to be able to match wits with New Orleans coach Sean Payton and say, after 60 minutes, that it was better than a fully-equipped version of the Saints. By being able to beat Payton, Atlanta could immediately put to rest the notion that in 2012, “New Orleans would have won if Payton had been coaching the team.” Atlanta substantially improved last season, showing a dimension of professional resolve that had not previously existed for the organization.

When football betting specialists delve more deeply into this game, they’ll likely note that Matt Ryan and his teammates have enjoyed more continuity and consistency over the past 13 months, an inevitable result of the Saints’ BountyGate penalties, which were handed down by the league commissioner. The 2012 season was such a disruption for New Orleans that Atlanta might have the more rhythmic and flowing offense.

Why New Orleans Will Win

When the best online betting sitestackle this clash, they will point out thatthe New Orleans Saints will be more motivated to play well in 2013 than any other NFL team. You have to remember that, just one year ago at this time, they were swimming in controversy and had been fractured by the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell, who chose to impose very substantial penalties on the organization. The Saints watched as head coach Sean Payton was suspended for a full year, rendering him unable to set the tone on the sidelines. Payton was prevented from personally creating the right structure on offense for players he was able to guide with great expertise in recent seasons. Payton led New Orleans to a Super Bowl title and then two more playoff showings. His players went to the wall for him, and after this one-year suspension, it stands to reason that Payton will be mentally fresh – not just in terms of being able to think of new plays and tatics, but in terms of being able to handle this team and steer it through the mental challenge of responding to wins, losses, and overall pressure. With Payton back, New Orleans should be extremely enthusiastic in this season opener to begin with. The fact that a bitter and accomplished rival, the Atlanta Falcons, are on the opposite sideline should only make it that much easier for New Orleans to play with a great deal of inspiration and passion.

Who Will Win

The notion that New Orleans will be rusty just doesn’t hold water. Drew Brees knows what he’s doing, and if he’s on, Atlanta really won’t have much of a chance. Take the Saints here.
