    Atlanta Falcons Betting Trends

    Just like New England, Atlanta has steamrolled their competition this postseason. The Falcons beat Seattle 36-20 in the Divisional round, and followed that up with a 44-21 victory over Green Bay in the NFC championship. Those wins were good enough for a 2-0 ATS record (2-0 O/U as well) and Falcons bettors are hoping for one more great game from this team to cash another ticket. 

    My Team's Next MatchNew England Patriots

    The good news in that regard is the fact that Atlanta is ona 6-2 ATS run in their last eight against a team with a winning record, and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. With the highest scoring offense in the NFL (33.8/game) and improving on those numbers in the playoffs (40/game), this Falcons team is never out of it. Atlanta will need all of their weapons firing on all cylinders to beat a highly skilled and supremely coached Patriots team, but with the underdog being 4-1 ATS the last five times these two teams have met, there are more than a few good reasons to consider grabbing the points with the underdog Atlanta Falcons here. 

    Atlanta Falcons Biggest Concern In SB LI

    Atlanta doesn't really have one big concern that sticks out in this matchup, but rather two concerns they'd like to conquer in order to win Super Bowl LI. The first of those was alluded to before in that this Falcons offense that has carried the team all year has to be able to consistently move the ball down the field and score TD's rather than FG's. The Patriots have the best scoring defence in the league (15.6/game) and with their own explosive offence over there, Atlanta can't be settling for FG's if they want to win.

    The second biggest concern for the Falcons is whether or not their own defence can hold up and force New England to try FG's rather then scoring TD's. Atlanta's defence ranked 27th in scoring during the regular season (25.4/game) and were bailed out by their offence time and time again. That number of points allowed/game was the worst by far of any NFL team that made the playoffs, and while it hasn't come back to bite the Falcons yet, the Patriots are exactly the team to exploit your weaknesses and make you pay.
