The Atlanta Falcons are hosting the New Orleans Saints to close out the season. Our guy John Hyslop shares a simple same-game parlay that could get you plus money.

Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints Same-Game Parlay: Trust the Saints on the Road

At first glance, this one looks meaningless but the New Orleans Saints can actually make the playoffs if they win and the San Francisco 49ers lose. The 49ers are 4.5-point underdogs to the Los Angeles Rams and will be starting a rookie quarterback. Point is, it wouldn't be crazy for the Rams to win that game. Since that's the case, we should throw together a same-game parlay for this one. The player props still haven't come out yet and it's Friday so there's that. Plus it's a nice way to have a (+) money, back-pocket, 4:25 pm ET move. Set it and forget it stuff here.

New Orleans Saints ML

This is kindergarten stuff here people. The Saints are not losing this game. They are a deeply flawed offensive team that has no quarterback. We know that. But at the same time, this is the Atlanta Falcons here. You don't need a quarterback to beat them. Over the last three weeks, their run defense has given up 4.8 yards per attempt. Last week they gave up 5.3 yards per attempt to the Buffalo Bills. Josh Allen ran all over them to the tune of 81 yards. If Taysom Hill and Alvin Kamara get going like that, there's no way Atlanta will win this game.

Atlanta Falcons Team Total Over 12.5

This one seems like it's crazy but go back and look through Atlanta's schedule. They've hit this total in each of their last six games. In that span, they've played the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, San Francisco 49ers and Buffalo Bills. That's pretty good. I mean, they lost all those games but they still scored at least 13 points. The last time they played these same Saints, they put up 27 points in a win. Now I don't think they'll do that again, but I definitely think they can get into the end zone twice Sunday. I'm thinking this will end up being a 23-16 type game.
