Can The Eagles Ground the High-Flying Falcons?

Two birds of prey will do battle this week as the 6-3 Falcons head to Philly to take on the 4-4 Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field where Atlanta has historically had issues. The teams are trending in different directions, however, as the Falcons have won their last two games while the Eagles have dropped their last two.

SHARK BITES
  • The Falcons are 1-6 SU and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games on the road against the Eagles.
  • The Eagles are 7-2 SU and ATS in their last 9 games after consecutive losses.
  • The Falcons are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games against the NFC East division.

Atlanta has continued to impress on the offensive side of the football and remains the No. 1-rated DVOA offense. Matt Ryan and Kyle Shanahan will be put to the test once again this week when they line up against the No. 1 DVOA defense, but as they’ve already proved, they can move the ball against anyone.

The Philadelphia defense might also be a little bit overrated. Over the last two weeks, the Eagles have given up 57 points and 762 total offensive yards. Atlanta is 5-1 straight up and 6-0 against the spread in its last six road games and has not gained fewer than 360 yards of offense in any game this season. The Eagles have lost every game this year (0-3) when they’ve given up more than 300 yards of offense.

Atlanta’s high-potency offense has translated into OVERs for total bettors as their last three games with a closing total of 50.0 or more have gone OVER and just one of their nine games so far has stayed UNDER.
