The New Orleans Saints travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons for the final game of the Thanksgiving Day slate. Despite losing to the Falcons, 26-9, back in Week 10, the Saints are a 6.5-point road favorites in this one, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on this one, here are four of the best prop bets for the Thanksgiving game between the Saints and Falcons.

1. Drew Brees - Passing Yards: Under 310.5 (-112)

Surprisingly, the Falcons managed to shutdown Drew Brees and the Saints' passing attack when these two met back in Week 10. Brees only threw for 287 yards in that game, and he's gone under 311 passing yards in two of his last three starts, averaging 275.3 per game during that span.

2. Alvin Kamara - Rushing + Receiving Yards: Under 106.5 (-108)

Similarly, Alvin Kamara hasn't been at his best recently. The talented Saints back is averaging 91.0 yards from scrimmage across his last four games. He left Week 6 early with an injury, but he's averaging just 99.3 yards from scrimmage across his last three games since returning from injury. The Falcons' defense is far from great, but they've been solid lately, holding opponents to 15.7 points per game (PPG) across their last three games.

3. Matt Ryan - Passing Touchdowns: Under 1.5 (-102)

Matt Ryan has failed to throw multiple touchdowns in three of his last four games, and he's been held without a touchdown in two of those four. Considering the Saints are the 11th-best defense against the pass, according to Football Outsiders' DVOA rankings, Ryan could struggle to reach two passing TDs here.

4. Julio Jones - Receiving Yards: Over 82.5 (-102)

Julio Jones has always given the Saints problems, but he could be poised for a solid game given Marshon Lattimore's uncertain status. He's averaged 113.8 receiving yards per game in his last five contests against the Saints, and has exceeded 83 yards in four of those five.
