OUR PREDICTION: Everyone expects a high-scoring game - including oddsmakers. That's why the total is set at 53.5, as bookmakers and bettors alike believe both teams could reach the 30s on offense. But the best play is backing New Orleans as a small home favorite. Drew Brees isn't going to allow the Saints to fall to 0-3, not on his home turf and against a team that New Orleans has owned of late (the Saints have won the last two meetings, eight of the last 11, and 15 of 20 since 2006). Keep in mind that while New Orleans is 0-2, the Saints lost by one point to the Raiders in Week 1 and by three points to the Giants in Week 2. They're a bounce or two away from being 2-0 instead of winless. The Falcons don't have a pass rush, so look for Brees to throw for 300-plus yards and multiple touchdowns while leading the Saints to their first victory in 2016.
