Monday Night Football couldn’t get any better than this with a pair of NFC South rivals set to meet in a battle of the top two teams in the division. The New Orleans Saints are two games back of the Atlanta Falcons for first place with two games to play, and even if they don’t catch them in the NFC South, a win would clinch them one of the two NFC Wild Card spots.

A potential NFC Championship game preview, the Saints blew their shot at the division with a 30-24 loss at the Baltimore Ravens last week. They’ll need to be better to have any chance against an Atlanta team that has won eight in a row.

Why To Bet On The Saints

The Saints have not suffered consecutive losses all season, and will need at least one more victory to clinch their spot in this year’s postseason. New Orleans has lost one divisional game this year, and that was a 27-24 overtime defeat at the hands of Atlanta in which kicker Garret Hartley missed a routine field goal to win it, so head coach Sean Peyton will have his boys prepared to avoid the sweep. Quarterback Drew Brees has hit his stride with 31 touchdown passes this season, the biggest reasons why the Saints hit the 30-point mark in each of a five-game winning streak that ended with a 24-point effort against the Ravens in the loss. New Orleans has been just as good on the road as they’ve been at home, and should be able to bring enough intensity to prevail over a team that has already locked up a playoff spot.

Why To Bet On The Falcons

The Falcons are one win away from ensuring that they won’t have to leave the Georgia Dome before the Super Bowl by securing home field advantage. Atlanta has reeled off eight straight wins, including three straight on the road, and have two chances to clinch the first round bye with the Saints in town this week followed by the Carolina Panthers. The Falcons played New Orleans tough the first time these teams met, forcing Brees in to a pair of interceptions while running back Michael Turner rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown, and that was at Louisiana as opposed to within the friendly confines of the Georgia Dome. Atlanta hasn’t lost at home this season, and if they can get past the Saints this week, they’ll likely close out the year perfect against a lowly Panthers’ team.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Saints will throw everything they’ve got at the Falcons in a game that will help them secure one of two NFC Wild Card spots, in a football betting game that is very significant given that these teams could very well meet in the postseason. New Orleans felt it deserved better the first time they clashed with Atlanta, and that should carry through in this game.
