Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 ET. Atlanta is 1-0 ATS on the road this 2008 NFL Pre-season, while Baltimore is 0-1 at home ATS. Both teams have seen the under cash in four of their six exhibition games this far. Last week at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, the NFL odds closed with the Falcons as three-point underdogs to the Tennessee Titans, with the ‘total’ set at 36.
The game was tied 3-3 at the half, and then in the third quarter, Atlanta rookie wide receiver Harry Douglas caught his first career TD pass from rookie QB Matt Ryan to put the Falcons up 10-3. The rookie Ryan played well, completing 15-of-21 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown. Atlanta’s 17-3 victory fell under the football betting line total by 16 points and cashed NFL bettors tickets that predicted a lower scoring game.
NFL Pre-season Week 3 also saw the Baltimore Ravens as one-point underdogs to the St. Louis Rams in a football betting contest at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. The ‘total’ in the game closed at 34.5. Baltimore, whose offense ranks dead last in total yards this NFL Pre-season, converted on just 7% of its 3rd down opportunities (1/13) and got killed in the time of possession game, controlling the ball for only 23:00 minutes compared to the Rams 37:00.
Rams veteran QB, Mark Bugler, completed 18 of his 25 pass attempts for 182 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams 24-10 victory. St. Louis covered the NFL wagering contest by 13 points, while the total landed a half a point below the predicted number. The Baltimore Ravens are favored by two-points over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night, with the ‘total’ in this NFL betting battle currently standing pat at 33.5.
