Bookies love this . Dont you find it strange that Atl would be a underdog here at home?If this line was based on play instead of public perception than it would have been ATL -1 or 2 in this game But the line tells the story,They know they would be getting many SF backers with this line,Parlays with 2nd game teasers making the line SF+2or +6 .This is the money game for the big boys .Next game will be more split betting with again a line not based on play but perception. They knew people be betting down the ravens now @8 (i took them imediatley a t9.5.) prob go down to 7,and then the NE backers pound the line back up to9at kickoff only to lose outright or beat the Ravens by 3 at best.
As for ATL Yes they have had a tough time with some running Qbs but ,they alsowon against the best of them Wilson last week ,Yes he got his yards ,but he didnt beat them ,he didnt score 2tds the way KAP did against a Packer team that limped into playoffs ,then got lucky to even get to playSF at home. ATLs DEF bends but dont break ..Dont look at Sea scorinf 20 unanswered look at Seatlle starting 2nd half with a great drive ,scoring 7,then what happens against the best Def that was in the playoffs this year? ATL marches down the field and gets beack the 7. Then after the perfect storm and some dumb behind plays they find them selves down by1 ,what does ATL do march down the field in 30 sec and win the game.They stay home ,they havent had to travel now in 3 weeks ,they are motivated confident and will be in the Super Bowl after a 31-24 win against SF
