NFL Betting: Atlanta Falcons vs. Oakland Raiders

The Atlanta Falcons (4-3, 4-3 ATS) travel to Oakland on Sunday for an inter-conference NFL betting showdown with the Oakland Raiders (2-5, 3-4 ATS).

Kickoff is scheduled for 4:15 ET.  Atlanta is 2-5 ATS in its last seven road games, while the Raiders are 9-24 ATS in their last 33 home games.  Last Sunday in Philadelphia, the Falcons were 9.5-point underdogs to the Eagles, in a football betting contest where the ‘total’ was expected to be 45.

Atlanta QB Matt Ryan threw a touchdown pass to WR Roddy White to give Atlanta the lead.  The Eagles came back with ten points (a David Akers field goal and a Donovan McNabb touchdown run) to give Philly the 10-7 lead at the break.

Philly added two touchdowns by RB Brian Westbrook in the second half and one more David Akers field goal to secure the lead and the game.  The Eagles were able to win straight up and cover the NFL betting line in their 27-14 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, even though it was a gift cover due to a blown call by the zebra’s late in the 4th quarter.

The Oakland Raiders were in Baltimore last Sunday for an NFL betting showdown with the Ravens, who were favored by nine-points, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 34.5.

After flying high from their overtime victory last week vs. the New York Jets (the team’s first home win of the season), the Raiders were not able to generate very much offense throughout this game.

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 22 yard field goal and Justin Griffith caught a touchdown pass from QB JaMarcus Russell, but it wasn’t enough to stay competitive.  Baltimore put 29 points on the board and easily covered the NFL odds with its 29-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders in the contest.

The Atlanta Falcons surprisingly sit as three-point road favorites against the Oakland Raiders this Sunday.  The ‘total’ is predicted to be 41.  For all the football spread, total, and money line wagers your NFL betting appetite craves, login to; the greatest sports betting website around.
