We have reached week three of the NFL season and there are a few matchups that look really promising. In this game the New Orleans Saints make the trip to Atlanta to take on the Falcons.
This a key game that could go a long way in deciding who wins the NFC South. The home team has won the last three games played between the two teams.
New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints come into this game with a 1-1 record but they might be one of the most disappointing teams in the NFL.
They opened up the season with a loss against the Tampa Bay Bucs and in their second game they beat the Browns but it is probably a game they should have lost.
The Saints offense has problems getting traction against the Browns and although Drew Brees still threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns, he really should have thrown for a lot more.
Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas have had a big year, especially through the air. Thomas has had 28 receptions for 269 yards and three touchdowns.
In this game the Saints offense needs to get out to a fast start and show the Falcons they are ready to play. If they fall behind early in this game they are going to have no chance to come back.
On the defensive side they need to try and put pressure on Matt Ryan. If they can get him to have happy feet they will have a real chance in this one.
On the other side of this matchup is the Atlanta Falcons who come into this game with a 1-1 record and after a bad game against Eagles they bounced back to grab a big win against the Carolina Panthers.
Matt Ryan looked really uncomfortable against the Eagles but against the Panthers he had a big game throwing for 272 yards and two touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball even though they won, they let Cam Newton walk all over them throwing for 335 yards and three touchdowns.
That is not looking good considering they are facing Drew Brees who does well, especially in Domes. In this game the defense needs to be good and slow down Brees.
He has so many weapons and the Falcons need to find a way to try and take them away.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Saints ATS
The Saints haven’t looked great in the first two games but I really don’t like the way the Falcons defense played against Cam Newton.
NFL Free Week 3 Score Prediction: Saints 34 – Falcons 30
I think that Brees will light up the Falcons and that will be the difference. The Saints will pull the upset and win this game straight up.
I also expect it to be a shootout so I would give a lean to the over.
