Atlanta is favored by 2.5
Is there something we aren’t seeing here? With Lattimore and Ingram playing I don’t see how we lose tonight. Atlanta has struggled at home this season as well.

Atlanta's offense is the best in the league IMO

They're backed into a corner. Coming off a loss. Have the best 3rd down offense, we have one of the worst. Short week, we have to travel so our's is even shorter. Key guys coming off recent injuries.

This has ALL of the makings of a trap game.

Vegas usually takes the home team who's back is against the wall and needs a win.

Divisional road game on short rest with a somewhat patch work offensive line (Peat is out). I've thought since the team came together that we split with ATL this season. I think it's gonna be real tough to pull one out tonight.

Their defense is pretty bad, but I think it's moderately equipped to handle Kamara (they're fast), which has been why we've been torching people lately. Conventional wisdom says, OK we'll just run Ingram down their throats... HE'S HURT. and Peat is out.

Trap.

Yeah but even with their backs against the wall, at home, the thing I take away is Vegas still believes the Saints are a 0.5 point better team.

They didn't give the Falcons the full 3 point advantage evenly-matched teams usually get at home.

Vegas is looking at it like this is the game for Atlanta to win vs the Saints. Atlanta is at home, coming off of a loss, and their season is pretty much on the line tonight.

Most people betting on games will go with Atlanta simply because they were in the Super Bowl last year and their backs are against the wall tonight. It's a good move by the odds makers to make money.

Yup. Plus despite last week, ATL is playing much better now than they were. We are also pretty banged up.

Its going to be an extremely tough game. Have to survive the early emotion and onslaught.

Am I taking crazy pills? They average 22 points a game.

Only thing of note they have done is get in a shootout with a depleted seahawks team. Even then 7 points from their defense.

Short week usually favors the home team, 2.5 is about right.
