The Falcons are playing better, especially on offense. Julio Jones is starting to score touchdowns and he will be a tough cover for this Saints secondary. The underdog has covered 8 of the last 10 games in this series, because they are always close games. The Saints big win over the Eagles has caught the eye of the public who now have the Saints as the favorites to win the Super Bowl. That means they are overpriced for this game and the team to bet in this game is the Falcons as a feisty underdog.
