Vegas NFL Odds Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints NFL Week 3 Predictions & Picks - In week three of the NFL season, the New Orleans Saints (2-0) host the Atlanta Falcons (1-1) in a key NFL Week 3 Predictions game, this is a early season matchup between top NFC South contenders. Las Vegas Odds makers has placed the Saints as -3 1/2 point Spreads favorites. New Orleans has won 6 of the past 8 NFL Predictions games, including a sweep in 2009.
The Saints have won their first two NFL Picks games, not solely on the strength of their explosive offense led by quarterback Drew Brees, but with an opportunistic defense. In their 14-9 win over the Vikings and 25-22 thriller against the 49ers, it was the defense more than the offense that was responsible for the victories. Not that the Saints offense isn’t capable of exploding, including this week against the Falcons. Brees has completed over 74% of his passes with 3 touchdowns, spreading the ball around to 10 different receivers, including himself ( he caught 1 pass on a deflection for 1 yard). The ground game has struggled some, making the Saints more one-dimensional than they would have liked in the first two NFL Predictions games, but both the Vikings and 49ers played rugged run defense. The Saints will want to establish Pierre Thomas and the run game early but Brees will do his share of passing too.
The Atlanta Falcons who are +3 1/2 underdogs set by Vegas NFL Odds makers, defense has been led by a pair of active linebackers, rookie Sean Weatherspoon and middle linebacker Curtis Lofton. The pair has combined for 32 tackles and 2 sacks. Dunta Robinson has made a difference in the Atlanta secondary. Though he has no interceptions himself, his presence has allowed others to step-up and the team has four interceptions by four different players. They have also gotten to the quarterback well, with five sacks. They’ll need to amp the pressure up against the Saints, who come at opponents with a multitude of players and formations.
As the NFL Odds makers have set the over/under of 49 points suggests, Vegas is predicting this game to be high-scoring. Both teams can put-up numbers on offense, while creating turnovers on defense. Like Monday night, this game could come down to whoever has the ball last, which means you might want to take the Falcons to cover the Vegas Point spread but the Saints to win.
