Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints

The Saints opened as 3.5-point home favorites for their Week 18 game against the Falcons. The game has a projected total of 41.5-to-42.5 points.

The Saints and Falcons will both be hoping for an unlikely Buccaneers loss against the Panthers in order to have a shot at the postseason, although New Orleans does have a path that also involves a Bucs win, along with a Packers loss to the Bears and Seahawks loss to the Cardinals.

The Saints’ longshot quest is going to have to be carried out without Alvin Kamara, who’ll sit out due to an ankle injury suffered, ironically, at the hands of the Buccaneers in Week 17. That sets up Jamaal Williams, who handled a season-high 19 carries in that contest, for a lead role, with rookie Kendre Miller serving as his backup in his return from a seven-game absence due to an ankle injury.

New Orleans’ Derek Carr threw for 304 yards in the Week 12 loss to Atlanta, and with Kamara out, he figures to rely even more than usual on Chris Olave, Rashid Shaheed and Juwan Johnson. The latter is active after suffering a chest injury against the Bucs in Week 17 but still putting up a season-best 8-90-1 line on 12 targets. With Atlanta’s defense frequently funneling work towards running backs and tight ends, Johnson could remain very busy in the critical matchup.

On the other side, a Saints defense that’s played very well at home will look to slow down a Falcons offense that will be guided by Desmond Ridder after Taylor Heinicke was ruled inactive due to an ankle injury. The veteran’s absence could funnel even more work to the backfield duo of Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier, who New Orleans conceded 154 rushing yards and a touchdown to in the first meeting.

The Saints have signed free-agent RB Jamaal Williams to a three-year contract. The deal is for $12 million total, with $8 million guaranteed, reports Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. 

The 2022 campaign was a breakout season for Williams. He led the Lions with a career-high 1,066 yards. His 17 rushing touchdowns led the NFL, as he recorded two 100-yard games and had six more outings of at least 60 yards.

The Saints have a mismatch Week 18 in the passing game. New Orleans is twenty-second in pass offense DVOA, per Football Outsiders, and third in PFF pass grade. Stopping the pass is still an issue for the Panthers. Carolina’s pass defense still ranks below league average in pass D DVOA and PFF grade and is below league average in yards per pass attempt allowed.  

Chris Olave’s receiving yards prop has yet to be posted. The best available price for him to score a touchdown is +340 at FanDuel.

The Saints are -3.5 (-105) favorites at DraftKings for their Week 18 matchup against the Panthers. The point total is set at 41.5 for the game.

The Saints have rattled off three straight wins, including an impressive 20-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week. Unfortunately, New Orleans has still been eliminated from playoff contention. It is not known yet if Dennis Allen plans to rest any players for the game. Taysom Hill has scored a rushing touchdown in each of the team’s last two games.

The Saints may be able to take advantage of a weak Eagles run defense in Week 17. New Orleans ranks twenty-second in rush offense DVOA, per Football Outsiders, and twenty-third in PFF rush grade. Stopping the run is an issue for the Eagles. Philadelphia’s rush defense still ranks below league average in rush D DVOA, they rank twelfth in PFF rush grade, and they are bottom nine in yards per carry allowed.  

Alvin Kamara’s rushing yards prop sits at 55.5 with -+140 the best available price to score a touchdown at DraftKings.

The Saints are +6.5 (-104) underdogs at FanDuel for their Week 17 matchup against the Eagles. The total for the game is set at 43.5 or 44 depending on where you shop.

The Saints have won two in a row and are hoping to play spoiler on the road in Philadelphia this weekend. They may have to do so without rookie WR Chris Olave who has been dealing with a hamstring injury. QB Taysom Hill has gotten more involved the past two weeks, as he has tallied 16 carries for 86 yards and a touchdown during the Saints winning streak.

The Saints may look to jump start their ground attack in Week 16. New Orleans ranks twenty-third in rush offense DVOA, per Football Outsiders, twenty-first in PFF rush grade and are about league average in adjusted line yards. Stopping the run is still a major problem for the Browns. Cleveland’s rush defense ranks bottom three in rush D DVOA and is last in PFF rush defense grade. Additionally, they are bottom three in tackling according to PFF, and bottom four in yards per carry allowed.

Alvin Kamara’s rushing yards prop sits at 65.5 with -+200 the best available price to score a touchdown at BetMGM.

The New Orleans Saints are +3 (-107) underdogs for their Week 16 matchup against the Browns. The total for the game currently sits at 32 or 32.5 depending on where you shop.

The Saints got back in the win column in Week 15 with a 21-18 win over the Atlanta Falcons. TE Juwan Johnson will look to continue his amazing season this week, after scoring two touchdowns in last week’s matchup.

How to bet on the New Orleans Saints

Moneyline

The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Saints -150
  • Colts +210

The Saints are considered favorites in this matchup (indicated by -150), requiring a $150 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Colts are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $310 total for a $100 bet ($210 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Saints -1.5 (-110)
  • Bills +1.5 (-110)

In this example, New Orleans is favored by 1.5 points, indicated by “-1.5.” If the Saints win the game 31-27, the Saints (-1.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Bills keep the game within two or win the game outright– say they win 31-30– the Bills (+1.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Saints’ Week 15 showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs had a 54.5 point over/under. The Saints came up short in a 39-32 shootout, resulting in 71 total points. Those that bet the over in the game would have cashed out.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Saints (-225) were heavily favored against the Panthers (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Saints to win would win just $4.44.

However, say the Saints fell to a big 21-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Panthers, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Saints to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take New Orleans (+130) at halftime and the Saints pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Panthers (+190) in that game, but New Orleans jumps out to a 14-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on New Orleans (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.

Futures

Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.

Saints 2021 recap

Record: 9-8, Second in NFC South

Record ATS: 9-8

Over/under record: 7-10

Without Jameis Winston, the Saints offense was stagnant in 2021. Even with Jameis, their offense was limited. Defensively, New Orleans did exactly what they’ve done for the past half-decade and led the NFL in EPA. Demario Davis landed on the All Pro list and their secondary was capable of making opposing passing games ineffective. One thing is clear, though: Taysom Hill is not the answer at quarterback for this team.
