NFL Week 1: Atlanta Falcons vs Philadelphia Eagles Predictions

Finding Fault in Foles

The Eagles announced that they will be starting Nick Foles under center. Although Eagle fans prefer to see Carson Wentz, they forget that Foles just captured a Super Bowl for this team. In fact the Eagles finished last season 13-6 against the spread (ATS) mostly under his guidance.

Falcons Falter at Philly

If you like sports betting trends then it is tough to back the Falcons in this game. They are just 2-6 ATS in the last eight games on the road and they do really bad in Philly. The Falcons are 1-4 ATS I the last five games in Philly and they are an ugly 5-11-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings overall. The Eagles are 7-2 ATS in the last nine games overall and these numbers spell doom for the Dirty Birds.

Atlanta Falcons vs Philadelphia Eagles predictions

The Falcons are getting all of the love from the betting public and there are even reports that “respected” money is coming in on the Dirty Birds. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones is a terrific tandem, but it won’t be enough to beat the Eagles at home in the opener.
