No one really knows quite what to make of either the Atlanta Falcons or the New Orleans Saints at this point in time. We know that the Carolina Panthers are clearly the best team in the NFC South division, but these two teams can contend for a playoff spot; they certainly have the offense to do it. On defense, it could be a different story, but what we DO know is that they can produce some very lively matchups when they get together. So it should be an electric atmosphere at the Superdome on Monday night when these squads meet up, with an 8:30 PM ET starting time scheduled. VietBet customers, who get reduced juice wagering on the football odds beforehand, will have the ability to use Live Betting Ultra to keep the action going after the kickoff and throughout the game itself.

Falcons vs Saints – CJ’s Take:
Of the Saints’ defense is much-maligned, and they really have their difficulty in the opener against the Oakland Raiders. They could not hold a fourth-quarter lead in the game, surrendering a late touchdown, and then, when Oakland went for the two-point conversion, it failed. They came back with a much better effort last week against the New York Giants, but it was still in the process of a 16-13 loss in which the offense was greatly slowed down. So they are sitting here winless and in a position where they cannot afford to lose their second home game of the season.
The Falcons performed badly in the season opener, allowing Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston to throw four touchdowns against them, and they didn’t do much to slow down the aforementioned Raiders last week. But their offense came alive against a suspect stop unit, and Matt Ryan threw for 396 yards in the 35-28 victory. As you probably know, Dan Quinn, the second-year coach, was formerly the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks, and one of his objectives was to improve his team’s performance on that side of the football. Atlanta has thus far allowed seven touchdown passes through the air, with only one interception and one sack. And opposing teams have rushed for 4.6 yards per carry.
Drew Brees, the future Hall of Fame quarterback for the Saints, has spent most of his career in New Orleans making the most that of the receivers around him. The group that he has compiled over the last season or two has proven to be perhaps his most explosive yet, although you will probably get an argument about that from a lot of NFL observers. But he has gotten great results thus far out of Willie Snead (14 catches, 226 yards) and Brandin Cooks (13 receptions, 211 yards). What is really missing from this whole mix is his connection with All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham, who was traded to the Seattle Seahawks last year. Graham often turned out to be a tremendous short-range outlet, as well as somebody who came in handy in red zone situations.
Unlike Brees, Matt Ryan has never had the opportunity to play in the Super Bowl, but he has always been able to put up some numbers. This season he has once again been able to connect with Julio Jones (172 yards), but VietBet patrons should watch the developments with tight end Jacob Tamme very closely. Remember that Tony Gonzalez, who is headed to the Hall of Fame someday soon, was a very dependable tight end for Ryan, but he retired. Tamme has played previously with the legendary Peyton Manning, and this year he has eleven receptions for 126 yards, making him somebody who is invaluable in the red zone.
The two-headed backfield of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman probably gives Atlanta an average in the ground attack. Both of them have the capability of catching passes out of the backfield, and Freeman is known as somebody who can take the ball coast-to-coast on virtually any given play. The Saints have thrown the ball more than 70% of the time, so as you can imagine, if they got more out of Mark Ingram, they would be in much better shape. Is that even possible?
Here is an interesting statistic – when the Saints host a game in prime time, Brees has been absolutely brilliant, with 55 touchdown passes and only five interceptions. When the lights go on, he is very dangerous, and the Saints seem to raise their game against this hated rival, compiling a record of 15-5 straight-up since Sean Payton became the head coach.
