According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the Falcons are 6-point home favorites to beat the Saints today at the Georgia Dome. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 52.5 points with oddsmakers expecting a shootout.

New Orleans enters play with a 6-9 record and is 7-7-1 against the spread this season, while Atlanta is 8-7 overall and 6-9 at the betting window. After they beat Carolina has a 7-point home underdog last Sunday, 58% of public bettors currently back the Falcons to cover the 4 points today.

The thing that's concerning about laying the four points on Atlanta today is that the Falcons will be coming down off the high of beating the Panthers last Sunday. After exuding all that fire and emotion last week, will Atlanta view today as a letdown?

But while that is a legit concern, the Falcons should be plenty motivated to not only beat their biggest rivals today, but also avenge a mid-October loss in New Orleans earlier this year and finish the season on a high note. If the Falcons win today, they will have won three-straight to finish Dan Quinn's first season in Atlanta. Plus, seeing as how the Saints are last among NFL teams in terms of points allowed this season (they allow 30.6 points per game), Matt Ryan and the Falcons shouldn't have much issue moving the ball today offensively.
