Falcons vs. Saints Most Popular Player Props

  1. Matt Ryan over 255.5 passing yards (-115)
  2. Alvin Kamara over 75.5 rushing yards (-115)
  3. Kyle Pitts over 64.5 receiving yards (-115)

Ryan registered season lows in completions (20), attempts (27) and yards (146) in last week’s loss to the Panthers.

Bettors will hope to see Ryan play at the level he did the five game prior, a span in which he averaged north of 300 passing yards per contest.

Ryan’s been comfortable away from home in 2021, posting 305.3 yards through the air in four games.

New Orleans’ defense presents a challenge, as the secondary ranks fifth in DVOA pass defense.

Kamara’s been streaky this season.

After crushing this number in three of four out of the gates, he’s been held to 71 yards or fewer on the ground in three straight.

Head coach Sean Payton’s done everything to get Kamara involved, especially in the passing game. The star back has seen 18 targets over the last three after recording just 10 across the first four.

The Saints may be able to get Kamara going again in the run game Sunday: The Falcons’ defense is 30th in weighted DVOA and 25th against the rush.

The Panthers put a damper on Pitts’ traction in Week 8, limiting the tight end to just two catches and 13 yards.

The rookie enjoyed his coming-out party the two games prior, combining for 16 receptions, 282 yards and his first career NFL touchdown.

Pitts should be a staple in the passing game, especially without Calvin Ridley a the moment. The tight end ranks first at his position in air yards, second in air yards share and third in receiving yards.
