UNDER 6-1 Falcons Last Seven on Road

The Atlanta Falcons have been money when they hit the road as the UNDER has cashed in six of their past seven away from the Georgia Dome. The Falcons will take to the road once again in Week 3 when they visit the Dallas Cowboys.

The Falcons are an unassuming 2-0 SU this season, with a combined margin of victory of a mere six points. But, not surprisingly, the offense has gone through wide receiver Julio Jones who has averaged 138 yards per game and accounted for a league-leading 14 first downs.

The Cowboys will turn to backup quarterback Brandon Weeden with Tony Romo out for nearly two months. Weeden went a perfect 7-of-7 with a touchdown in relief duties in Week 2.

The Atlanta Falcons will look to cover ATS vs their hosts on Sunday, as they are 2-0 ATS versus the spread this season, while the Dallas Cowboys are 1-1 ATS. Atlanta is 0-2 against the over under total, while Dallas is 1-1 versus the number.

The Dallas Cowboys didn't waste much time on tears and pity after Tony Romo went down with a broken collarbone. The Cowboys went to the junk yard trading for Matt Cassel.


Brees Out, McCown In For Saints at QB

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been ruled out of Sunday's matchup with the Carolina Panthers due to a bruised rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder, head coach Sean Payton announced Friday.

Journeyman QB Luke McCown will get the nod under center in place of Brees. In light of the news, [5dimes-link] has adjusted the Saints from +3 all the way to +9.5. 

McCown will be needing to shake off some serious rust, as the 34-year-old has not started an NFL game since Sept. 2011. The signal caller only has nine career starts to his name which has seen his teams go 2-7 ATS during that span. 

The absence of Brees on a Sunday will be a rarity for Saints bettors. Since signing with the team as a free agent in 2006, the Purdue product has not missed a game due to injury.

Betting fans of the Carolina Panthers have seen them go 2-0 and 2-0 ATS so far this season, while the New Orleans Saints are at 0-2 and 0-2 ATS. In over under totals betting, the New Orleans Saints are 1-1, while the Carolina Panthers are 0-2.

UNDER 7-1 Past 8 Bengals Road Games

Offense has been hard to come by for the Cincinnati Bengals when they pack their bags with the team going UNDER in seven of their past eight on the road. The Bengals start their AFC North schedule when they visit the Baltimore Ravens Sunday.

The Bengals struggled mightily to score on the road at the end of last year as they averaged just 12.5 points per game in their final four games away from Cincy last season.

The Ravens are coming into Week 3 after dropping their first two contests by a combined 10 points. Quarterback Joe Flacco has been inconsistent this season with two touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Baltimore Ravens sport a record of 0-2 and 0-2 ATS heading into this betting matchup, while the Cincinnati Bengals sit at 2-0 and 2-0 ATS on the season. The over under totals records are 1-1 for the Ravens and 1-1 for the Bengals.

Eagles 5-1 ATS in Last Six Against Jets

The Eagles will be looking for their first win of the season this week against a Jets team they have a history of dominating. The Eagles are 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Jets, but just 1-5 SU and ATS in their last six games overall.

The Jets have struggled in their last 11 games against the NFC East, going 2-9 SU and 2-8-1 ATS. In their first home game of the season the Jets were efficient on both sides of the ball, beating Cleveland 31-10.

The Eagles are coming off of a lackluster effort against a depleted Cowboys team, and Chip Kelly will look to establish his up tempo offense after putting up only 226 total yards in Dallas.

This season the New York Jets are 2-0 overall and 2-0 ATS against the spread, while the Eagles are 0-2 and 0-2 ATS. As for the totals, New York is 1-1 on the OU, and Philadelphia is 0-2.

UCLA Rides Eight-Game SU Road Streak

UCLA rides an eight-game SU win streak on the road into their Week 4 clash with Arizona. The Bruins are also 9-1 SU in their past 10 overall following a 24-23 win over BYU on Saturday, but suffered their first ATS loss of the season as heavy 16.5-point chalk.

However, UCLA is a strong 5-1 SU in their last six games against nationally-ranked squads, 4-2 ATS.

The Wildcats are off to a fast 3-0 SU to the season, following their 77-13 rout of the FCS Northern Arizona Lumberjacks last weekend, and are an impressive 8-1 SU in their last nine September home dates.

However, they are 0-3 SU and ATS in their last three meetings with the Bruins, and have been a betting disappointment at home, going 2-6 SU in their last eight.
