The New Orleans Saints come marching in to face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, but will they put an end to the home team's three-game winning streak?
The Atlanta Falcons had it easy last Sunday with a 31-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, but they'll face a much tougher test this Sunday when they host the New Orleans Saints. The opening line, according to Odds Shark, had the Falcons as one-point home underdogs. At least one line has kept it that way while two others have placed the game as a push or as a Falcons one-point favorite.
After stumbling out of the gate a bit to a 2-3 record through the middle of October, the Falcons are on a three-game winning streak. However, they are averaging just 23.6 points this season while allowing 21.3 per contest. The Saints, on the other hand, boast the league's No. 2 offense with 31.9 points per game.
The Saints also have a middle-of-the-road defense that allows slightly less than 23 points per game. The over/under for this contest ranges between 49-1/2 to 51-1/2 points. This game is likely to total more points than any of the current numbers out there.
