Falcons vs Eagles Betting Preview

You can talk about the Eagles and their 10-1-1 ATS run against the Falcons and you can talk any other betting angle you want in the Sunday Nighter on NBC. The truth is this - this is all about Michael Vick returning to Atlanta as the QB of the Eagles.

Philly opened as small favorites here, a week after dominating the Rams. But Atlanta needs the win, after its Week 1 disappointment in Chicago, after which Roddy White apologized to fantasy owners for his poor showing.

As underdogs, the Falcons have not had much bite. This is the first time they are home dogs since 2009 but they are just 2-8 SU when getting points. The Eagles on the other hand are 8-2 ATS in the past 10 road games as a favorite.
