New Orleans Saints Best Prop Bets

2. Matt Ryan Passing Touchdowns (1.5)

We’re certainly not seeing the MVP version of Matt Ryan but the guy isn’t a slouch by any means and he always — and I mean ALWAYS — brings it against the Saints whenever these two teams lock horns.

The receiving threats might not be intimating in Atlanta but Ryan has thrown for at least two touchdowns in all but two of his eight games this season.

Yes, the Saints’ defense is good, but Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns on them last week. It’s possible to score on this unit and while the Falcons aren’t very good, Ryan has proven he can still find the end zone this year, even in a down season.

For what it’s worth, one of the two games where Ryan didn’t throw for two or more touchdowns was last week against the Panthers. Maybe the Saints will catch Ryan on another off week but by looking at his 2021 stats, I wouldn’t feel comfortable taking the under here.

Prediction: 2 passing touchdowns — Over (+125)
