Reason for Philadelphia Eagles vs Atlanta Falcons Betting tips

The Eagles are fresh off their first-round bye and will be fully rested when the Falcons come to town on Saturday. Atlanta pulled off a late night upset with their victory over the Rams in St. Louis, and proved to everyone yet again that they are dangerous once the postseason begins.

The game was centered around Atlanta’s defense, who yet again carried the team to victory. They held the high-scoring Rams to a mere 13 points, as they kept RB Todd Gurley and QB Jared Goff in check for most of the game. Atlanta’s fast linebackers were a real problem for the Rams’ offensive line, and also helped contain Gurley out of the backfield.

On the offensive end, QB Matt Ryan controlled the game well and led lengthy drives in order to keep the ball out of Goff’s hands. But one key observation was the continued struggles of the Falcons in opponents’ territory. But thankfully for Falcons fans, K Matt Bryant has been close to automatic this year, and continues to be a weapon once the Falcons get to the opposing 40 yard-line.

This should be a low scoring game between two teams that are going to run the ball and rely on their defenses to carry them. Philly has been offensively challenged since QB Carson Wentz went down with his knee injury, and QB Nick Foles has not been able to pick up the slack. The Eagles will have to run the ball effectively with their plethora of running backs including Ajayi, Blount, and Clement. It’s going to be hard for the Eagles to move the ball consistently against an Atlanta defense that has been stout against the run, especially in recent weeks.

We like the Falcons to win this game at very high confidence, as the Falcons are showing signs of being a more complete team than the Eagles. If you compare the offenses, the Falcons have more balance since Philly is restricted through the air, and this one-dimensional Eagles offense will not be able to break through the Falcons’ defense with their speedy linebackers and solid secondary. On the other end, the Eagles do have a good front seven, but they have had serious problems in the secondary and Julio Jones should be able to utilize his massive frame and speed to expose them all game.

For our recommendations, we advise the Falcons money line and the under for the points total. The Falcons have been under specialists all year, and it doesn’t look to change even with this low points total. The Atlanta defense will have success containing the Eagles and the Falcons’ offense has still shown signs of inconsistency which should keep the total under. We also like Devonta Freeman to find the endzone, as he has scored in all four of his playoff appearances. He will have a heavy workload on Saturday and thus plenty of opportunities to get in the endzone.
