The New Orleans Saints face the Atlanta Falcons this weekend with the hopes of moving to 6-2 and 2-1 in the division. They’re hot off their thrilling victory over the Buccaneers last week while the Falcons are reeling after losing a close game to the Panthers.
My focus with the prop bets last week went to Alvin Kamara’s rushing yards, Jameis Winston’s passing touchdowns, and Tom Brady passing touchdowns, where I went 2-for-3. In my defense, Winston was injured early in the game and had already thrown for a touchdown, so there was a decent chance that had he remained healthy, I’d have gone 3-for-3 last week.
But, now it’s a new week and it’s time to provide new prop bets for the upcoming Saints game. There weren’t many Saints props available, which is likely due to not knowing who the quarterback would be until Friday morning.
Here are three of the best for Week 9 vs. the Falcons with all odds courtesy of WynnBET.
New Orleans Saints Best Prop Bets
3. Cordarrelle Patterson Receiving Yards (33.5)
After going in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft to the Vikings, Cordarrelle Patterson has had quite the roller coaster of a career. He’s bounced from team to team and now finds himself in Atlanta, which is the fifth city he’s played for since being drafted under a decade ago.
To give Patterson credit though, he’s reviving his career with the Dirty Birds and he’s doing it in a multitude of ways. He’s making a difference as a receiver, as a rusher, and on special teams, which isn’t an easy thing to do.
Even with Patterson being involved in different aspects, he’s made it count in the receiving game. Kyle Pitts is still a huge threat but Calvin Ridley won’t be playing, making Patterson one of Matt Ryan’s main targets. He should surpass 33.5 yards this week, even against a stacked Saints defense.
Prediction: 48 receiving yards — Over (-125)
