New Orleans Saints (9-2) | Atlanta Falcons (4-7)
The Saints have won eight straight and two in a row with backup quarterback Taysom Hill filling in for the injured Drew Brees. New Orleans took out Denver 31-3 on Sunday to cash in as a 17-point road favorite in Week 12 as running back Latavus Murray rushed for 124 yards and two scores on 19 carries while Hill added a pair of rushing scores in the win.

Atlanta has looked a lot more competitive under interim head coach Raheem Morris than they did under former head coach Dan Quinn. The Falcons have won three of four and come into this matchup fresh off a stunning 43-6 blowout win over Las Vegas on Tuesday night. Matt Ryan passed for 185 yards and two touchdowns while Deion Jones returned an interception for another score to help Atlanta cover the spread as a 3.5-point home underdog.
“The biggest challenge is getting your butts kicked the first time and having to bounce back,” said Morris, who has led Atlanta to a 4-2 record since replacing the fired Dan Quinn. “You have to look yourself in the mirror and be honest with yourself, (make sure) they know the facts and why it happened.”
While the Saints have won two straight and five of the last six meetings overall, I feel a big-time upset brewing in this Week 13 showdown to exact some revenge for their 24-9 road loss against New Orleans just two weeks back.
Pick: Atlanta to Win

New Orleans Saints-3 (6-5) | Atlanta Falcons+3 (5-6)
The Saints are playing some phenomenal defense in not allowing more than 13 points in four straight games while going 4-0 ATS during the stretch. Prior to that, however, New Orelans won three straight games by an identical three points.
Here is a look at the hottest and coldest ATS teams in the league heading into Week 13.
While the Saints are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against their NFC South division rivals, Atlanta has gone 3-1 ATS over its last four games and 4-2 ATS over its last six. The Falcons are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games as an underdog and an even more impressive 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games as a home underdog.
I’m expecting Raheem Morris to cook up a game plan that makes Taysom Hill struggle in this intriguing Week 13 affair to help the Falcons cover the spread as a field goal home dog!
Pick: Atlanta to Cover
Over/Under 45 points:
New Orleans Saints (7-4)| Atlanta Falcons (5-6)
The Under has gone 4-0 in the last four meetings and 6-1 in the last seven meetings, but the 45-point total for this matchup represents the lowest O/U total in the last 10 meetings. Two of the last four meetings have topped this 45-point toal while the Over has gone 5-1 in the Saints’ last 6 games as a road favorite.
Here is a look at the Hot and Not Over/Under teams heading into Week 13.
While the Under is 5-0 in Atlanta’s last 5 games as a home underdog and 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Atlanta, I like these two to combine for at least 46 points in this affair to top the 45-point total.
Pick: Over 45 Points
Final Score: Falcons 27, Saints 21

Saints at Falcons Props Predictions
The Saints are ranked inside the top 5 across the board defensively, but Atlanta ranks an encouraging 11th in scoring (26.8 pg) and has scored 34 points or more in two of its last three games.

Will There Be a Defensive or Special teams TD
Matt Ryan has tossed at least one interception in four straight games while tossing two picks and no TD passes in Atlanta’s loss to New Orleans two weeks ago. This time around, Matty Ice doesn’t throw a pick, but Taysom Hill does after tossing one last weekend. Still, the ‘No’ selection looks good in this meeting.

Total TDs in the Game Over/Under 5½
Over 4½ TDs -155
Under 4½ TDs +125
The Saints and Falcons have combined to put at least five touchdowns on the board just four times in the last 10 meetings, but not at all over the last three dating back to last season. Still, this time around I’m going with the two longtime rivals to likely top this figure by putting exactly five touchdowns on the board.
