Why Bet New Orleans
The New Orleans Saints have had a couple of rough home games and could use a change of scenery to the right the ship.
Drew Brees has played better on the road lately with a 100-plus passer rating in his last three away games. Moreover last year he threw for 682 yards and five TDs with no INTs in two games versus the Falcons.
Why Bet Atlanta
Atlanta’s red zone offense has seemed to come back to life in Week 2 by putting up four touchdowns within the twenty. Now they face a struggling New Orleans defense which was a surprising game-changer last season.
The Saints let the Bucs score 48 points in New Orleans in their season opener. Last week they won after the Browns to miss two field goals and two extra points to avoid going 0-2. If that’s the Saints at home, I don’t want to bet on New Orleans on the road.
New Orleans vs. Atlanta Betting Pick NFL Week 3
First, the Falcons are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and beat the Saints the previous two times they’ve met in Atlanta. Also, the home team has gone 9-4 ATS in this series in the last 13 meetings.
The only sure bet is that this game will be a high-scoring affair.
