If they were, they aren't now.....

I'm going to assume Gronk & Amendola play - - when that's definite, line should jump the other way

I'm getting in while the getting's good

Pats in the pick 'em

Falcons 0-3 ats last 3 vs the Pats.. I think they turn things around on Sunday after that loss to the Fins

Atlanta - 30                                        New England - 27

Falcons pk                                    over 49.5

Matt Ryan (Boston College alum) would love nothing more than to put an end to that 0-3 ats losing streak vs his fellow New Englanders.

Atlanta - Under

Coloneljim - the Falcons 0-3 in the last 3...that dates back to 2001, lets try and keep this relevant!!

ATL is pretty dependable at home and I'm thinking they have to pull this one out, almost do or die for them with N.O sprinting out of the gates.

ATL -1 and under (28-21)

So far in 2013, the average PPG for these teams works out to 39.5 points.  Over/Under line is set ten points higher at 49.5...

If this was a 1pm game I'd be all over the UNDER...however the primetime lights concern me.

Then again - ATL was a 1-7 UNDER result at home last year.

Under 49.5 smells like a winner - GL to all.

Falcons -1

 Falcons are a damn good team at 1-2 and play great at Home. From my betting experience whenever a game is a PK or -1 Jump all over the home team . Falcons will not go 1-3 Don't be fooled by their loss to a very solid Miami team , a game which they should have won and blew a 10 point lead. The Falcons will be flying high for a primetime SNF matchup with Tom Brady.

Last week I advised fading the injury-plagued Falcons and taking Miami to have a statement win. It turns out I was a little lucky last week because Atlanta looked pretty solid against Miami. Asante Samuel contained Mike Wallace for the entire game, Matt Ryan brought his typical A game, Snelling and Rodgers were a nice change of pace combination, and Julio Jones continued to dominate his opposition like an unstoppable rebel force. I bet Tom Brady wishes he had a receiver like Julio. 

The Pats haven't looked good in any of their games this year!!! They almost lost to the Bills in week 1, beat the Jets by just a fg, and won ugly last week vs Tampa in a back-to-back home game scenario. The Pats of old would have dominated the Bucs in that situation....not go 2-5 in the redzone. Obviously, Brady is still a work in progress with his new receiving corp. Once Amendola returns and Gronk shakes the rust off, I think they will become a formidable unit. But we are still in week 4 and I don't see that happening this Sunday.

Let's not forget that Matt Ryan is 34-5 in the Georgia Dome. I'm not over-thinking this one. I think the Falcons get back to .500 and the Pats drop a game that doesn't hurt them too much in the standings because Miami will be playing at New Orleans on Monday night.

Dirty birds get it done in a thriller.

Teaser card is kinda shady here in Vegas, the Big teaser....Atlanta is getting +7.5 and NE is getting +12.5....that is 5 points difference! I understand the spreads fluxuate but this seems kinda fishy to me. NE +12.5  seems to good to be true. But I can't see them getting blown out by Atlanta? Hmmmmm....

I guess Atlanta is probably the pick, as good as NE seems they might set this one up for a blowout.

NE's defense is flying under the radar.  Vastly superior to Atlanta's defense.  Enough to get the win for NE. Wile E Coach supergenius helps also.  Loving NE here.

NE +1.5 ,

espec is Gronk plays (questionable who knows)

Brady is getting more in tune with the WR's , connects 2 TDs to Thompkins and 1 rush TD by RB Ridly or Blount.

IMO, the team with the better chance of getting blown out is the Pats.  I think this game will be close and decided in the 4th quarter, but if a team is going to get blown out it will be the Pats. 

Pats defense is not terrible and I would give them a slight edge in this category.  But almost everything else favors the Falcons.  The Pats have scraped together 3 wins against less than stellar opponents.  Teams they would normally demolish. 

Now, the Pats are on the road facing a very good home team in recent years.  The Falcons will be undervalued after a loss in Miami, while the Pats are overvalued because of their history as a winning club and 3-0 record.  Watching all three Pats games this year has left me unconvinced they can compete against higher quality opponents.

I’m with you here as well…


If this game was being played at any venue in the country other than the Georgia Dome, I would take that crooked axx Tommy Terrific with or without all his toys; but I have painfully learned don’t bet against Matt Ryan at home.


With that said, put me down for Atlanta minus the chalk for four (4) C-Notes please.  Thanks!

I think you gotta take ATL. here at home.

Patriots are bound to lose with the banged up offence they have and the Falcons are just too tough at home, a loss here puts them at 1-3, (something I just don`t see happening) Expect a high-scoring game and a big game from Matty Ice

ATL -3
Gold pick of the week

Hard not to take the Falcons here @ home but their pass D is so bad ! However they are pretty good against the run.   We all know about NE receiver problems. 

Put be down for the Dirty Birds minus the small chalk.

Have fun arguing on the side. Atlanta is the better play but just a lean IMHO.

I'll take my hard-earned money and go large on the over.
