RV: 17-1 MONDAY NIGHT NFL WINNER HAS 7 ANGLES
Atlanta vs. New Orleans,
12/26/2011 20:30 EDT,
Score: 16 - 45
Point Spread: +7/-110 Atlanta
On Monday night Football the play is on the Atlanta Falcons. Game 131 at 8:35 eastern. The Falcons have been chomping at the bit since losing in overtime at home vs The Saints on a game where they went for it from their own 25 on 4th and 1 in overtime and were stuffed. They know exactly what to expect from the Saints and have played them tough here over the years winning here last season and covering 14 of the last 19 here. The Falcons and Saints have played some tight games and this one should be close as well. The Falcons are 9-1 ats in the final 4 weeks of the season and 16-3 ats as a dog with revenge and 8-0 ats as a road dog of less than 10 vs an opponent off a win of 10 or more. Atlanta has covered the last 7 times in their final road game. The Saints are 3-16 ats as a division favorite of 7 or more and come in the hottest team in the league with 6 straight wins and covers. While I wont call for the upset I do think Atlanta can hang in here. Take the points with Atlanta.
