Saints vs Falcons Odds and Week 3 NFL Betting Preview

Obviously the Saints got into that shootout in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and came out on the short end of it, losing 48-40, as Ryan Fitzpatrick had a career day. That brough up a lot of questions about this team’s defensive unit, which appeared to have made a quantum leap last season.

Now if you want to be nitpicky about it, you could also cite the absence of former Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, who has had to start the season with a four-game suspension that still has a couple of games to go. Remember that it was the combination between him and Alvin Kamara that was so unbelievably effective for New Orleans last season on their way to the playoffs.

After that opening loss, New Orleans struggled a lot against the Cleveland Browns last week at home, and if not for a number of missed place kicks by Zane Gonzalez (who was subsequently cut), they would be sitting at 0-2. Instead, they came out a 21-18 winner, as Drew Brees engineered a last-minute drive that led to a field goal.

The Falcons found things slow in their opener against Philadelphia, losing 18-12, but they made a nice comeback last week against the Carolina Panthers, winning 31-24 on their home field. Truth be told, they took advantage of some injuries on the Carolina side, but they also had a more dynamic attack. Rookie Calvin Ridley came alive with four catches for 64 yards, and he may yet be an appropriate complement to his fellow Alabama alum, Julio Jones, who now has 233 receiving yards after the first two weeks.

Matt Ryan, who has hit 62%, did not suffer a sack against the Panthers, and that’s a good sign. What is not necessarily a good sign is that this team has given up 5.2 yards per carry to opposing ground attacks. So they are lucky that the Saints still have to sit out Ingram.

Brees has completed an amazing 81.2% of his passes and has not been intercepted yet in 80 attempts. His top target, Michael Thomas, has already put together some monster numbers; in the first two games he has 28 catches for 269 yards. So even though Atlanta has a pretty capable defensive unit, allowing a combined 5.5 yards per pass attempt in facing both a former MVP (Cam Newton) and a Super Bowl MVP (Nick Foles), no one should get any delusions that they are going to stop Brees cold. And you should also take note that the Saints, with Brees quarterbacking, have covered ten of their last 15 as an underdog.
