NFL Week 13 Picks: New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons

Head coach Mike Smith is a very important figure to handicap when making your against-the-spread (ATS) picks this week, as the Atlanta Falcons (10-1) host the New Orleans Saints (5-6) on Thursday night at the Georgia Dome, with the opening kickoff scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET on the NFL Network. 

The Falcons are currently 3.5-point home favorites in the Week 13 pro football betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 56 in the market.

Smith improved to 11-0 when facing a first time head coach during his time in Atlanta, as the team captured a 24-23 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week. He lands back in this situational spot, as New Orleans is led by Joe Vitt, who is filling in for Sean Payton on an interim basis. 

Let's take a closer look at this NFC South divisional matchup from a betting perspective, while offering a first-half prediction along the way.
