Falcons vs Eagles Score Prediction

The Eagles beat the Falcons 15 to 10 in a relatively low scoring contest. I expect this game to be a similar game with the defense matchups keeping the final score under the total of 45 points. I also like the Falcons to get revenge for last years loss.

Projection: Falcons 20 – Eagles 13

Bets: Under 45 points & Falcons ML
