Online Football Betting – Atlanta Falcons (8-4) at New Orleans Saints (6-6)

Online football betting odds have the New Orleans Saints favored at home against the Atlanta Falcons in a key NFC South battle.

It is the last stand for the Saints who must win to have any chance of making the playoffs.  That could be why the Saints are favored in NFL betting, despite the fact the Falcons have the better record.

Online football betting on Atlanta has been very successful this season.  The Falcons are 8-4 both straight up and against the NFL betting pointspread.  Rookie quarterback Matt Ryan looks like a veteran and the Falcons are doing virtually everything right.  They are 7th in offense and 8th in points allowed on defense according to online football betting stats.  With a win against New Orleans the Falcons would put themselves squarely in the playoff picture and they would stay alive for the top spot in the NFC South.

On the other side of the ball the Saints have the league’s top ranked offense in terms of yards per game according to online football betting stats.  The problems are on defense where they rank 22nd according to NFL betting stats.  Drew Brees puts up a lot of points according to online football betting stats, but the team just can’t score enough to keep up with the defense giving them up.

New Orleans has won six of the last ten games against New Orleans and is 6-4 against the online football betting number in those games.  At New Orleans, the Saints are 4-1 straight up but just 2-3 against the NFL betting pointspread in the last five games.  Earlier this year in Atlanta the Falcons won 34-20 according to online football betting stats.

Looking at the online football betting total we see that the under is 6-4 in the last ten meetings between the two teams. Four of the last five meetings at New Orleans have gone under the online football betting total.
