Sammy_Ace,

 

 

Tony Gonzales retiring has nothing to do with the price of tea in China; however I do concur with your analysis…  I think it was stupid as hxll for the Seahawks to fly back to Seattle.  They should have expected to win in Washington and already had their hotel rooms booked in the ATL so they could have flown straight in…  Meanwhile, the Falcons who just so happen to be cash money in their Dome, have had a week to heal up Roddy White, Julio Jones, Asante T. Samuel and the rest of the walking wounded…  Not to mention, give the coaching staff the opportunity to layout a game plan for their visitors uninterrupted with logistics... 

 

With all that said, and in no small part to the fact the line has moved from one to a field goal, makes me think the home team gets the “W” so………………….  Put me down for Atlanta minus the chalk for a Nickel Alex Trebek please.  Thanks!

here's one for all you guys in that +65% of bettors lining up to on ATL.... this is only 5th time out of the last 48 playoff games where the  #1 seed have opened as a FG favorite or less

 Every time the top seed has been favored by a field goal or less, they’ve lost the game outright.

2011 ATL -1 vs GB Lost 48-21
2009 TEN -3 vs BAL Lost 13-10
1998 KC PK vs DEN Lost 14-10
1993 PITT -1 vs BUF Lost 24-3

up next......

2013 ATL -2.5 vs SEA .....???

Whaley still holding down the  fort.....Makes me feel at home..How is my diagnosing amigo?/Hope you are well my friend..Me liketh the cat..Who`s the rider..Rossi??

And so it goes.. There was Luck...Then there was RG111..And now there is just Russell Wilson..Rookie knockout..A baseball draft pick that decided to choose the pill..Ah memories..I once recall another like this one.Tom Brady was his name..He had the same choice of both sports yet choose the rock..Why does this bode any resonance??  Because QB`s are all about the mind and when you have mind like Tom Brady you win rings.Russel Wilson is no different. With the ability too match you have a problem if you are on the defensive side of Russ and the Lynch mob as an option on the march....Come stat wise, although they may favor Matty ice `n mob,I for one think they matter little in this matchup.The Falcons have no run game..Even if they did it would matter little..Seattles D held Gore, Jackson and Morris next to no yardage and these guys are the pinnacle of the league(A.P excluded)..So when push comes to shove, this game will come down to game balance.. Julio Jones may make be me frozen meals for a week,however it`s a risk I`m willing too take...I love the enthusiasm of Pete Carroll ,and love the way the Seahawks have improved all season long..Already on the Seahawks to win the lot for smalls@33/1 to win the lot..So I thought I would double up again at 10/1...These Hawks are not the Hasslebeck Hawks..They are an entirely different monster...They are the a Hawk with two heads..
SEAHAWKS-ml-[+145]

Mon-E ..How the nintendo rules have been engaged..Have been tailing when dabbing `n you are still the lion.Hope the crustations have not gotten the better of you..The puck will be my savior..I can only hope..Godspeed amigo..

This is a fairly easy game to cap, you have a falcon vs. a seahawk. The falcon is way more bad behind a bird than the seahawk. If I was a bird I would rather be a falcon so I got to roll with the dirty. Other than that, its time for Russell to get exposed, hes a gimmick QB and its times like this gimmick QBs get exposed, nobody except the Pacific Northwest is going to care if the niners have to play the seahawks (dull) next week so falcons gotta win one for the commish. Under also look nice, I don't foresee the Seahawks putting up too many points. End of the day....im going to take the premier QB with the premier options over the gimmick QB and Golden Taint every time.

I know seattle has been dominant for weeks now, and if they were at home i would friggin pound this game with a vigor regardless of the spread. But i'm telling you guys the sharp money absolutely pounded atlanta in this game when they released the -1. For me it's a pass. 

All due respect degenerate, what I saw in that game was that once Seattle absorbed the early 2 touchdown run by the Skins, they established superior line play on both sides of the ball and dominated the final 3 quarters of the game.

I don't disagree that RG III was unhealthy and that it impacted the game.  Because it did.  But the Seahawks had just as much fun sacking the dude from Michigan State as they did RG III.

Where's W8's bravado when I need it?

You know what F*** it...........

FALCONS

LARGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EXTRA LARGE!!!!!!!!!!!

WITH WHIP CREAM AND SLIVERED ALMONDS...........


No disrespect Quad, you're a veteran poster here, but your reaction to this line is exactly the one the bookies are looking for.

Why the hell did Atlanta open as only a one point fav?

At home.  With the best record in the NFC and all those weapons at their disposal?

If ATL gets up early it will be ugly.

I have superbowl futures on Seattle, but I can't see them getting passed a rested ATL on the road, 2nd cross country travel, vs. a 2nd tier qb when he doesn't lose at home, with 2 ridiculous wideouts, and 1 of the best TE's of all time in his last stand.

I may be nieve but I think they can contain Lynch.

 

ATL -1

I'm also looking into an alt line for ATL.... no reason why they can't put up 30+ at home.  Seattle better come out firing on all cylinders, if they start flat like last week they will never catch-up.

 

GL TO ALL!


The Atlanta run defense was actually 29th in yards allowed per carry this season (4.8).

Who do they get today?

Marshawn Lynch.

That run defense also gave up 394 rushing yards in two games against Cam Newton's read option offense and another 129 to the Redskins.

Who do they get today?
Russell Wilson.

The Seattle defense was 1st in the league in points allowed, has given up 17 or fewer in it's last 3 road wins, and they actually do have the kind of secondary (size) that can handle the Falcon wideouts (although Tony G is a problem for anyone).  In my opinion, 30 + points is far from a lock.

All of the wildcard teams that have run to the Superbowl in recent years have overcome all of the above problems you listed and travel didn't seem to be an issue for Seattle last weekend, so I wouldn't be so quick to lose excitement for your futures wager partner.

I happen to think you were onto something when you laid it down.

One could argue that Matt Ryan is due to overcome his tendencies in this situation, as are the Falcons ... but are they really?

Isn't Tony Romo ready?  Every single time?

Weren't Marv Levy's Buffalo Bills?

How bout Andy Reid's Eagles .... ?

If the Falcons were hosting the Redskins, or Tampa Bay, I'd feel a lot better about their chances, but they're up against a Seattle team that's beating people up in all three phases of the game.

Atlanta knows how they are being perceived in the media: as flat out choke artists!!  So why is it dumb to think their reputation as choke artists cant be a motivation? As i write this, they are mentioning the Falcons post-season struggles on ESPN Countdown.  I think this is the year they turn it around and get that first W.  

Maybe I'm wrong and Seattle gets their first win in a dome all season. They are a great team, but we all know the best team doesnt always win.  Just look at the broncos yesterday.

I see ATL winning handily. They are just too good at home. Public will be behind SEA due to recent performance and if they win, it won't be a shock. But I like ATL coming off the bye here, playing at home, and against a SEA squad that IMO shouldn't even be in the playoffs this year. Matty Ice will have a big chip on his shoulder. I predict a performance like that of Steve Young in SB XXIX

Seattle is on a rolll but they are still young, untested in the playoffs. Very lucky this year with GB game and RG3 getting hurt. TRUST ME, HEALTHY RG3 SEATTLE GETS ROLLED LAST WEEK! 

All year long Atlanta and Matty Ice been told they can't win when it matters, they can't win a playoff game, they are only a regular season team.  Blah, blah, blah... you don't think that garbage gets old and annoying?? Tony G. has NEVER WON A PLAYOFF GAME!

ATLANTA IS GOING TO BLOW UP TODAY!!! FALCONS LARGE

Would think the travel finally catches up to Seattle. I agree they should have stayed in the East. Has anyone seen any stories why they chose to fly home?

Falcons haven't performed that well against Cam Newton, so Wilson will pose a problem for him, in addition, they have a powerhouse running back, but worst of all, Coach Smith isn't that good in my opinion--too conservative. As for Pete Carrol, I still don't understand why he was passing the ball in the closing moments of the Redskins game.

Seattle signed a new kicker also. How will that affect the team.

Wow...only sensible post I've read here.

Atlanta Money Line is such a good bet this week, it's no wonder they had to hire a bunch of goons to come on here and promote Seattle. Seattle stands little chance to win this game and that should be OBVIOUS
