Top Betting Odds for Thursday
Football is back with another great NFL game and there's a huge Big East game that will decide a lot in that conference. The New Orleans Saints are headed to the Georgia Dome to take on NFC South rival Atlanta. Here at ATS Sports Line, we are in tuned with the NFL and college matchups, along with a decent schedule in college basketball. But the best game of the night might be in the NBA where the San Antonio Spurs meet the Miami Heat.
Let's get it started!
New Orleans (5-6) at Atlanta (10-1)
Last game: New ORLEANS (+1’) over Atlanta, 31-27. Atlanta is 3-1 ATS L4 at home in series. This is a rematch for the Falcons, whose only loss took place on Nov. 11 in New Orleans. The Falcons were held to just 46 rushing yards and settled for two field goals inside the red zone. Atlanta is looking for home field advantage in the NFC, while the Saints at 5-6, are looking to sweep the board to have a shot at wild card. The Falcons rank eighth in scoring at 26.7ppg and sixth in total offense (385.9ypg). Atlanta is 3-1 ATS L4 at home in series. NFL Odds: Atlanta is a 3.5-point favorite. Total: 56.
