How To Bet On Falcons Saints – Saints Punch Hole in Atlanta Armor
Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints – Sunday November 11, 2012 1:00PM EST
The football betting experts are extremely impressed with the progress that the Atlanta Falcons have made so far in the 2012 season. At the halfway point of the season, the Falcons have a perfect 8-0 record. But the accumulation of that perfect record has been anything but perfect. The Falcons still have some shortcomings on defense that could be exploited by a quarterback who has no fear about getting into a shootout with the Atlanta offense. The Falcons run into that very kind of quarterback in week 10.
Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have broken a lot of NFL records together over the years and they have also won a Super Bowl title together. That may be one of the reasons why it was so hard to watch the Saints go through what it had to go through this offseason. The suspensions and distractions caused by “bountygate” have caused the betting websites to look at the Saints in a different light. But while the betting experts were busy feeling sorry for the Saints, the Saints got to work and fixed their problems. The team that the Falcons will face in week 10 is nothing like the battered team that opened the season.
Why the Falcons Will Win
The Falcons are able to win this game because they have been able to pull out all of their previous eight games this season. The Atlanta Falcons did not always win games running away and they did not always control games from start to finish. The Falcons have found ways to win games that most teams would have given up on. But this game may be a little different for Atlanta as it matches up with a team that has just as much heart and creativity as the Falcons themselves.
Why the Saints Will Win
The New Orleans Saints have the kind of offense that can match up perfectly with the Atlanta defense. The online sportsbooks know how much Drew Brees can dominate a football game and take the emphasis off the Saints’ defense. In this game, the Saints won’t need much defense as Drew Brees and the offense will control play and take it directly to the Atlanta Falcons. It is one of those games where the Falcons may be powerless to stop Brees and the New Orleans offense.
The Bottom Line
This will be a high scoring and exciting game that will see two elite quarterbacks go to work. In the end, the Saints will just have too much offensive firepower for the Falcons to stop. Atlanta will be able to mount an offensive charge in this game, but the New Orleans offense is precise at keeping the ball and scoring points just when it needs to.
Pick: New Orleans Saints
