repost bttn suprsd New Orleans vs Atlanta Predictions: Falcons Eager To Eliminate Rival Saints From Playoffs

When the New Orleans Saints visit the Atlanta Falcons they will be in a must-win situation.

A poor start to the season for the Saints put them in a big hole, and it looked as though they would miss the post season. But the team rebounded to put together a string of victories to resurrect their playoff hopes before losing badly to the San Francisco 49ers last week.

Saints vs Falcons Predictions

Now they do not have to win every game left to make the postseason, but a loss would virtually eliminate and chance they have of making the post season.  There is no other team in the league that would rather deal that death blow, than their rivals, the Atlanta Falcons.

Saints vs Falcons Odds: The Falcons opened up as -3.5 point favorites and due to the recent success of New Orleans against Atlanta, the public jumped on this number and bet it down to (-3). The latest NFL Consensus report shows that the Saints are getting 59 percent of the betting action early in the week.

The Falcons are not only bitter divisional rivals with the Saints but they struggle mightily against this team since Drew Brees came to town.

Despite the recent success, the Saints struggle on a short week. The Saints are 1-3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five Thursday games entering this NFL Network televised showdown.

The Dirty Birds are just the opposite. The Falcons are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five Thursday games and know how to prepare for the quick-turnaround. This line indicates that this game will be close and the Atlanta Falcons 7-1 (.875) record in games decided by 7 points or less is 2nd best in NFL behind Houston Texans 5-0 (1.000).

The Falcons defense will feast on a Saints offensive line that was exposed against the 49ers.

Matt Ryan has this Falcons team winning the big games. They are doing all the right things on offense and defense in crunch time in big games, and that is exactly what this is.

Falcons win and the Saints playoff chances are on life support.
