Falcons vs Patriots Betting Analysis

Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons led the Patriots by 25 points in the third quarter before losing in overtime. Think they have forgotten? Last week they blew a 17-point lead in a 20-17 loss to Miami. Last season established Matt Ryan with career highs in passer rating (117.1) and yards (4,944) and NFL MVP honors. However, this year he has thrown for as many interceptions as touchdowns 6 after throwing 38 scoring passes versus only 7 interceptions a year ago. Wideout Julio Jones has 25 receptions this season but has yet to reach the end zone. Atlanta has a potent two-pronged backfield featuring Devonta Freeman (five TDs) and Tevin Coleman, who have combined for 566 rushing yards through five games.

New England Patriots

Tom Brady threw for 466 yards in the all time Super Bowl comeback and has continued to air it out this season. He leads the NFL with 1,959 yards while throwing for 13 touchdowns against only two interceptions. Brady has Gronkowski, who missed the Super Bowl but has added 26 receptions and four touchdowns in five games this season. One reason for all of the offensive production is that New England’s defense ranks last in the NFL with 440.7 yards allowed per game .

Looking for different results this year? The Patriots have to pass to win and the Falcons need a weak defense to get their offense on track. Both teams will be throwing early and often. The Falcons have the same defensive problem they showed last season in that their defense will wear down in the second half. This year the offense has been in a bit of a shell to try and help out the defense. The Patriots will not let them stay in that shell. They will come out throwing and force the Falcons to match them are fall behind. I can see both quarterbacks going over 40 passing attempts. A 300 yard passing game? One of them has a good chance of needing 400 to win. In the end. Tom Brady will be able to get another victory. Good fun and a lot of scoring.

Pick: Patriots -3.5 & Over 56.5
