The point I was trying to make is that there are certain teams in the NFL (i.e. the 49ers and Steelers) that have very physical offensive lines, and have front-7's that play at a different level of intensity than most NFL teams. I imagine the Saints have a little more bumps and bruises than usual and now they have to head out to Atlanta on short rest and play the Falcons where Matt Ryan is 31-4. Its not a very strong angle, but I just don't think the Saints have what it takes to win this game.
Its been a roller coaster of a season for them. Losing their coach, the whole scandal with Vilma and other players, and the slow 0-4 start. It took one hell of an effort for them to get back to .500, and then they just lost a must win home game against a very physical 49er team. Now its back to the drawing board where they hope they can get back to .500 again versus an Atlanta team that wants to avenge their previous loss, clinch their division championship, and take one step closer to home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Not to mention, its a prime time game and the Falcons have not had a statement win at home yet (every game decided won by one score or less). Who better to make this statement with than against their division rival Saints who are sporting a 4 game winning streak against them?
My prediction is that the Falcons have a major statement game and crush the playoff hopes of their division rival at the same time.
Good luck and feel free to fade me. Everyone has made valid points on the Saints and the underdog is 6-1 ATS in the last 7.
Once again, my man Sammy provides a reasonable opinion based on a "situation". When are u gonna understand this Vue? When are u gonna stop compiling ur stats in ur "database"? hahahahha. man, tools like u have been makin Vegas rich for ages.
Rack 'em again, loser.
