New Orleans at Atlanta

The New Orleans Saints are not destined for the playoffs for the second straight year, and that could spell the dismissal of Sean Peyton. The Saints have a lot of news circulating about the future of many of their top players, including QB Drew Brees, and many are likely not to be here next year. Atlanta looked impressive in a 5-0 start, but the offense crashed and burned and never found its way back. The Falcons averaged 32.4 points per game in their first five, but since just a meager 16 points per game since. That has left the Falcons at 12-2-1 to the UNDER for the season, and their games have averaged just 37 points total over the last 10 weeks where they are 9-0-1 to the UNDER. Drew Brees is hurting, the game means nothing, and I see a fast-played game with both teams trying to exit the season without any additional injuries. This game fits a 202-116 UNDER situation. Make the play on the UNDER.
