Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints – Tuesday 01:30, Sky Sports 1
A poor start for the New Orleans Saints sees them winless through two games after going down 13-16 in New York to the Giants last week, which followed on from a last gasp 34-35 home loss to the Oakland Raiders in week one.
This Monday Night Football match up sees them welcome divisional rivals the Atlanta Falcons whom themselves played and beat Oakland last week, so form line fans have something to go on early.
The Saints strength has long been its offense and quarterback Drew Brees will be looking forward to exploiting what’s been a poor Falcons defense so far this year. Receivers Cooks and Snead already have two touchdowns each and it’ll be a surprise if the Saints don’t score reasonably heavily on Monday night.
The Falcons defense might be poor but they have one of the NFL’s most underrated quarterbacks in Matt Ryan and the Superdome won’t be a problem for him considering the Falcons play in one themselves at home in Atlanta. In Julio Jones they have one of the NFL’s best WRs.
Points, points and more points is the play here so take the over 53.5 and even bigger lines if they are on offer at bigger prices.
