Sunday marks the start of the 2022 regular season for the New Orleans Saints and their opponent will be the Atlanta Falcons. Both teams have a new look with the Saints entering the season with a new head coach and the Falcons being led by a new quarterback after 13 years with Matt Ryan leading the charge.

Last year, the Saints and Falcons split the series with each team winning in the other squad's house. Atlanta is not supposed to be very good this year while the jury is still out on what the Saints might end up looking like. They have a new and hopefully improved offense and the defense is as stacked as ever. Can they live up to the expectations fans have for them though?

One of the biggest changes made this offseason, other than Sean Payton trading out his headsets for a mic and Dennis Allen taking over, is that Taysom Hill won't be the defacto quarterback if something goes awry. Allen made it clear early in his tenure that Hill would be switching to tight end but also said later on that the team would continue to use him in a variety of roles.

That's where this week's best bet comes into play. Shoutout to WynnBET for the odds below.

Anytime TD Scorer - Taysom Hill (+425)

Hill might not be throwing the majority of the passes but what fans can count on is for him to be on the gridiron and getting the ball in his hands. We've seen in the past what a difference Hill can make for the offense both on the ground and through the air. The dude can do it at all and it's why placing a $100 bet on the offensive weapon to find the end zone seems like a risk worth taking.

While the Saints have added more weapons on offense, Hill is still going to be incorporated into the offensive game plan. Not to mention that he both carries and catches the ball, which increases his odds of finding pay dirt.
