New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons: Line and point spread

New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons: Line and point spread It's time for Thursday night football and NFL Week 12 opener will see the New Orleans Saints travelling to meet the Atlanta Falcons, here you will get information about the latest line, point spread and betting odds on the football game. The New Orleans Saints (8-2) have put last season behind them and with coach Sean Payton back at New Orleans, the team is looking forward to the playoffs. It appears that tonight they will have an easy one, facing the Atlanta Falcons (2-8) who are miles away from their last season's great performance and on a 4-game losing streak. The game is clearly a must-win for New Orleans, who are just a game ahead of the Panthers and their 6-game winning streak. Meanwhile the Falcons are holding a dismal 2-8 record to find themselves at the bottom of NFC South.

 Once again the odds makers fail to agree on this NFC South football game. We visited both Bookmaker and Bovada Sports, two of the most popular USA sportsbooks, just to find a big difference in both the line and the point spread on the New Orleans Atlanta game. Here is what we found: Starting with Bookmaker, we see the Saints odds favorite to win the Thursday night football game with -400 line, while the line on the Falcons is +320. At Bovada, however, New Orleans is still favorite to win and extend their winning streak to 3, but here the Saints line is -420 and the Falcons line is +310. Clearly regardless of which bet you make, there is a big difference in the payout depending on the sportsbook you choose. The New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons point spread is at -8 chalk the Saints at Bookmaker, yet -9 in favor of New Orleans at Bovada Sports. One thing the odds makers agree on is the over/under, the total expected at both sportsbooks is at 53 points even.

 Looking at the betting stats for the New Orleans at Atlanta game we see that New Orleans is 2-5 against the spread in its last 7 games on the road, yet Atlanta is 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 games when playing New Orleans. Also, New Orleans is 5-1 straight up in its last 6 games when playing Atlanta and the Flacons have beaten the money line just twice in their last six games at home. Keep in mind that the total has gone UNDER in 4 of New Orleans's last 5 games when playing on the road against the Atlanta Falcons.

 For the Falcons defensive end Malliciah Goodman is the only one listed as out for the Week 12 game against the Saints, but defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux, tight end Tony Gonzalez, safety Zeke Motta and backup quarterback Dominique Davis have all remain questionable for the home game against New Orleans tonight. But it's even worse, as far as injuries are concerned, at the Saints camp. Corner Jabari Greer is out, but listed as questionable are cornerbacks Chris Carr and Rod Sweeting, defensive end Akiem Hicks, running back Darren Sproles, as well as tight end Benjamin Watson, DT Tyrunn Walker and guards Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs. Lot's of injuries on both teams for the football game tonight. The New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons game will start tonight at 8:25 pm EST at the Georgia Dome.
