NFL Week 8 Odds: High-Flying Atlanta Falcons Host Packers

Betting On Falcons Football


How Many Points will be Scored?

The Atlanta Falcons have one of the best offenses in the NFL this year. Their defense needs to improve if they want to hold off the Green Bay Packers this Sunday (4:25 PM ET, FOX) at the Georgia Dome. The Atlanta Falcons opened as a 2.5 or 3- point favorite almost everywhere. Atlanta is holding steady as a 3-point favorite with a total of 52 now. The total opened at 53.

How Strong has the Falcons Schedule Been?

The Atlanta Falcons (4-3 SU, 5-2 ATS) are the only winning team in the NFC South heading into Week 8. They are powered by Pro Bowlers Matt Ryan at quarterback and Devonta Freeman at running back. Ryan leads the NFL with 2,348 passing yards at 14.2 yards per completion while Freeman has rushed for 4.8 yards a carry. The Atlanta Falcons RB already has 26 catches on the season as well. However, Atlanta is also second-worst in the league with 2,060 passing yards allowed, driving the OVER to a 6-1 record after seven games.

Will Coleman’s absense mess up the Falcons offense?

Tevin Coleman is out for the Atlanta Falcons as well. He is a key part to the offense as he can catch the ball out of the backfield and is a good change from Freeman.

Can the Packers Slow the Falcons Down?

The Atlanta Falcons defensive woes is good news for Green Bay (4-2 SU, 3-2-1 ATS), this is especially good for QB Aaron Rodgers. The State Farm Doule Take guy has struggled at times this year. The Packers are also pleased with how well WR Ty Montgomery filled in at running back last week. He was in for the injured Eddie Lacy and James Starks. He picked up 60 yards on nine carries against the Chicago Bears. The Packers still have to worry about their depleted secondary.  The Atlanta Falcons High powered offense could shred them to pieces.
