Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints Picks,Odds, Lines & Predictions

Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints Picks,Odds, Lines & Predictions

The biggest news ahead of Sunday’s game between the NFC South rivals New Orleans (7-2 SU, 4-5 ATS) and Atlanta (3-4 SU, 4-5 ATS) is that the Saints will be without their starting quarterback, veteran Drew Brees, with Jameis Winston stepping up to fill the role leading the attack. The Saints won six consecutive games and find themselves in a similar situation as they were ahead of the last year’s matchup when Atlanta managed to end their six-game winning streak.

Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints Betting Line Movement

The opening odds favored the saints by -7, but after the news that Drew Brees and several other starters are out or questionable, the line has dropped to -4 where it stands at the moment. The total is set at 51.5 or 52 depending on where you place your bet.

Notes On The Atlanta Falcons

Since firing Dan Quinn, the Falcons have hit a run of good form, winning three out of four games with the one unlucky loss coming in the final seconds against Detroit. Unfortunately for them, it’s probably too little too late as far as playoff contention s concerned. Atlanta is capable of causing problems for anyone on any given day and Matt Ryan and Julio Jones combo is still one of the scariest QB-WR pairings in the league. However, the key to their improved performances has been the defense allowing for 23 points or less in four out of the last five games, after failing to keep their opponents under 30 for the first four weeks.

Matt Ryan has had a roller coaster of a season switching between multiple and zero touchdowns games. Still, with Atlanta coming off a bye, he had plenty of chance to rest and prepare for facing New Orleans defense. We feel he could have a big week and is a more than decent DFS starter. Ryan’s favorite target, Julio Jones may have had only 3 touchdowns this season, but if the game turns into a shootout we expect it to be, he’ll easily go over 100 receiving yards.

Notes On The New Orleans Saints

The Saints will be without Drew Brees for at least a few weeks but fared quite well without him last season going 5-0. Granted, that was with Teddy Bridgewater as his replacement, but this year that also have a decent backup in Jameis Winston. Winston played a better part of the second half last week after the injury to Brees and went for 63 yards with 6-10 passing. We can expect that, in the absence of their starting QB, New Orleans will lean more on their defense and running to win games.

This is good news for DFS players planning to start Alvin Kamara who should be even more involved with Brees out. Last week he torched San Francisco for three touchdowns and did some damage receiving with seven catches for 83 yards. The Saints’ passing game will surely take a step back with Winston at the helm, but WR Michael Thomas is due for a good game after two bad performances.

NCAAF Betting Pick: New Orleans Saints -4

New Orleans has proven already that they can do well without their HoF quarterback and securing a win at home against Atlanta is a must with Tampa Bay breathing down their neck in the NFC South.

Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs Betting Picks, Odds, Lines, & Predictions

Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs Betting Picks, Lines, & Predictions

The Gators (3-1 SU, 2-2 ATS), No8 at the moment, and the Bulldogs (4-1 SU, 2-3 ATS), ranked fifth, will square off on Saturday in a game with pretty high stakes where the winner most likely taking SEC East and getting a chance to take on Alabama in the SEC championship. For either side, losing will probably end their playoff hopes. Currently, the Georgia Bulldogs are on a 3-game winning streak against their rivals, covering the spread in all three of them.

Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs Betting Line Movement

The Bulldogs opened as the -2.5 favorites and with a lot of early money backing them, the line has moved all the way to -4.5 before dropping again and is now settled at -3 at most bookies. The total is set at 54 or 53.5 depending on the sportsbook, a small rise from the initial 52.5. It’s worth mentioning that in the last nine games between these two teams, only three went OVER.

Thoughts On The Florida Gators

With the game against the LCU Tigers postponed due to Covid-19, the Gators have played only two games in the last month, losing on the road to Texas A&M before destroying Missouri 41-17 at home. Similar to most of the season, the decisive factor in the Missouri game was Florida’s offense, definitely proving to be one of the nation’s best.

Quarterback Kyle Trask continued with excellent performances, throwing for 345 yards and four touchdowns, and adding 47 rushing yards. Trask now has 1341 yards and 18 touchdowns this season and is emerging as a strong candidate for the Heisman Trophy. His favorite target, TE Kyle Pitts is also putting a string of impressive performances with seven touchdowns already under his belt. The running game, led by Dameon Pierce, is working fine, too, with an average of 133.8 rushing yards per game.

College Football Betting Pick of The Week

Still, the issues for Florida are on the other side of the ball. The defense has been rather leaky this whole season, allowing 433 yards and 29.3 points per game.

Thoughts On The Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia‘s also managed to bounce back in the last game, winning the defensive battle against Kentucky Wildcats one week after their first defeat of the season at Alabama. They put in one of the best defensive performances we’ve seen in football this season allowing Kentucky only 91 passing and 229 total yards.

However, opposite to Florida, it’s their offense that is having trouble to get going. QB Stetson Bennet has struggled with interceptions for the better part of the season with his tally already at five. The Bulldogs’ attack is mostly reliant on their running game averaging 175 yards per game. Their main rushing weapon, RB Zamir White was dominant once again last week with 136 yards and a touchdown adding to his season total which now stands at 6. Nevertheless, the head coach Kirby Smart will have to find a way to get his passing game going if he is to get anything out of the big game on Saturday.

Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs Betting Pick = OVER 53.5

The Bulldogs do feature one of the stingiest defenses in the country, but we are confident that Trask and his offense will find a way to put up points against them. On the other hand, even though Bennet is anything but reliable, he should be able to have a good game facing the defense as bad as Florida’s, taking the game comfortably into OVER.

What Are The Best Bets And 2020 PGA Masters Tournament Betting Odds & Picks?

What Are The Best Bets And Online PGA Masters Betting Odds & Picks

The climax of the golfing season, the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, takes place this year in slightly changed circumstances. The Augusta Masters is traditionally played in spring, in April, and this will be the first time it will happen in the autumn. The Covid-19 pandemic forced the organizers to move the tournament to November and the field of 95 golfers will compete from 12th to 15th this month.

Long heralded as a “tradition unlike any other”, the Masters is the biggest and the most prestigious golfing tournament in the world. Winning in Augusta is the crowning achievement in every golfer’s career. Also, it’s the only tournament held at the same venue each year. The course itself hasn’t changed much since the seventies.

The Masters is the invite-only tournament so getting there is the feat for the players in itself. Golfers receiving invite include the last five winners of other majors, the top-2 of the previous US Amateur, and top-12 players for the previous Masters among others.

What Are The Best Bets And 2020 PGA Masters Tournament Betting Odds & Picks?

Oddsmakers believe that Bryson DeChambeu has the best chance to win the tournament this year and he is priced at +800. After winning the US Open, DeChambeu finds himself as Augusta favorite for the first time in his career. He’s been in excellent form since the PGA’s post-pandemic return and will be confident in winning his second consecutive major.

The rest of the top five odds-on favorites are John Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, and Justin Thomas. Bear in mind that Dustin Jonhson has tested positive for Covid in October, and, while he’s good to go for the Masters, the question remains how it has affected his preparation.

Sizing Up The Golf Betting Field For The PGA Tour Championship

The defending champion and last year’s feel-good story Tiger Woods is priced at +2500. While he most likely won’t be able to repeat the 2019 success, we can expect a lot of action on him due to his status among the fans and popularity that goes beyond golf.

Here is the list of golfers with the best PGA betting odds to come out as a winner:

  • Bryson DeChambeau +800
  • Jon Rahm +1100
  • Rory McIlroy +1100
  • Dustin Johnson +1200
  • Justin Thomas +1200
  • Xander Schauffele +1400
  • Brooks Koepka +1800
  • Patrick Cantlay +2500
  • Tiger Woods +2500
  • Bubba Watson +2800

  • Tony Finau +3300
  • Tommy Fleetwood +4000
  • Adam Scott +5000

Picking The 2020 PGA Masters Tournament Winner

We feel that picking Justin Thomas provides an excellent value at +1200. Only 27 years of age, Thomas is already one of the top names on the PGA betting Tour and has won a major title already. Although he’s still waiting for a top-10 finish at Augusta, he’s been steadily improving his performance at the Masters year by year and after a solid performance and a top-8 finish at US Open, this could be his tournament.

If you’re looking for longer odds, you can try Webb Simpson at +2800. Simpson has been in great form all season and has two victories and five top-10 finishes. Last year was his best in Augusta with a top-5 finish and it could be the time for the second major win of his career.

Also, add some fun following the Masters by betting on props. Bookies are offering a variety of prop picks including some really fun ones such as the color of the winner’s T-shirt or who will he hug first after the win.
