Watch Thursday Night Football Live Streaming New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons Live Online Week 13 match will be kick off at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia, United States., Thursday 07 December 2017 online, Time 08:25 ET and its broadcast CBS, ESPN, NFL Network Online.
The Atlanta Falcons host the New Orleans Saints on “Thursday Night Football” to open Week 14 of the NFL season. The Saints are favored by 1.5 points in this critical NFC South showdown after the line swung 3.5 points from an open of Atlanta -2.
The over-under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is a robust 53.5, down two from where it opened.
Before you make any bets on Saints-Falcons, you’ll want to hear what SportsLine Senior Analyst Larry Hartstein has to say.
In Week 2, he laid 2.5 points with Atlanta against visiting Green Bay. The result: Falcons 34, Packers 23. In Week 9, he faded Atlanta as a one-point favorite at Carolina, cashing yet again after the Panthers’ three-point win.
Strikingly, those calls helped improve his record to 10-2 on picks for or against the Falcons since the start of last season. Anyone who has followed his picks is way, way up.
Part of his success: Hartstein was a sportswriter based in Atlanta for 15 years. He has his finger on the pulse of Dan Quinn’s team.
Now, he’s going for 11-2 on Falcons picks Thursday night, and he’s sharing his pick over at SportsLine.
Hartstein knows the Saints have won nine of their past 10 games and scored at least 30 in their past four victories.
Rookie running back Alvin Kamara has scored in six straight and is third among running backs in receptions with 59, behind only Le’Veon Bell (66) and Christian McCaffrey (64). Kamara and Mark Ingram form a dynamic 1-2 punch out of the backfield.
But just because the Saints have been on fire doesn’t mean they cover on the road in a divisional game on a short week.
The Falcons have won three of their past four games and put up at least 27 points in all three victories. Quarterback Matt Ryan has thrown for multiple scores in four of his past six outings. SportsLine’s advanced projection model says Ryan will continue to roll in prime time, putting up almost 300 yards and two touchdowns.
