New Orleans at Atlanta
Sunday 10/19 01:00 PM Eastern
4 units on Atlanta +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: LOSS
The Falcons will have a new quarterback this Sunday. No, not Michael Vick (darn!). Kurt Kittner gets his first start in an effort to snap Hotlanta’s five game losing streak. Not sure he’ll be the answer but there’s a good chance he’ll provided a needed spark. The reason I like the birds in this game is this: These are professionals. The Falcons were thoroughly embarrassed on the national stage Monday night. Pro football players have pride. Atlanta will come out fired up this week on both offense and defense. New Orleans on the other hand, may have some mis-placed confidence. They won last week but against who? The Bears? Give me a break.
