Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White HATES THE SAINTS said there is nothing he likes about the New Orleans Saints or the city itself. "I don't like nothing about the Saints," White said. "The colors. The city. Nothing.

But they've got some good food, though. Other than the food, nothing." White added the Falcons do not need any extra motivation for their Week 10 matchup. "This would make their whole entire month of November if they can mess up our record," White said of the Saints.

"We know that. You don't have to get people up for this game in the locker room. We all know what this game is about. We all know that we have to go out there and get after it."

Saints defense need to step up

New Orleans' defense has been dreadful, ranking last in the league in total yards allowed. The Saints have surrendered at least 421 total yards in every game. The porous pass defense will have its hands full against quarterback Matt Ryan and a loaded receiving corps that includes Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez. The Saints' offense has not been as prolific as in past years, and running back Darren Sproles is out at least four weeks after hand surgery.

    "step up" is putting it mildly! Our poor defense (all I can do is shake my head)

For those of you that don't know I make six picks per week and post them here--buyer beware (I went 3-3 last week) but let's get started.

Saints +1
I just don't believe in the Falcons and love the Saints at home even if it is just getting a point. They need every win if they want to make the playoffs.

If Saints lose they are in trouble---only 2% of teams that start the season 3-6 make the playoffs

Teams that play well in the second half of the season

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-4 SU, 6-2 ATS)

The Buccaneers are one of the best bets in football strictly because they do not stop fighting. Tampa Bay is fourth in the NFL in second-half points, averaging just over 15 points over the final two quarters. The Bucs hung 35 points on Oakland in the second half Sunday, holding on for a 42-32 win as 1-point underdogs. On defense, Tampa Bay is allowing opponents an average of just 11.2 points, helping the Bucs cover as pups five times this season.

Detroit Lions (4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS)

The fact the Lions are .500 is a little shocking, considering just how bad they’ve been at times this season. But, as was the case with that backdoor cover against the Bears in Week 7, Detroit does its best work in the second half, averaging 14.6 points – or 60 percent of its offense. The Lions have needed strong second-half offensive performances in three of their wins (St. Louis, Philadelphia and Seattle) to keep its head above water. On defense, Detroit has limited foes to 11.4 points in the final two frames. Even better, it’s trimmed that to just eight points over the last three outings – all of which were ATS paydays.
