NFL Betting: Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is the sight of a Week 8 conference NFL betting match-up between the visiting Falcons and the hometown Eagles.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET on Sunday.  The under is 5-0 in the Eagles (3-3 SU, 4-2 ATS) last five home games and 4-0-1 the last five times these teams have played one another.  Atlanta (4-2 SU, 4-2 ATS) had a bye in Week 7 but hosted the Chicago Bears at the Georgia Dome in Week 6.

The Bears were favored by three points in that pro football betting contest, with the ‘total’ slated to be 41.  Jason Elam kicked three field goals for Atlanta and Robbie Gould kicked one for the Bears in the first half to make the score 9-3 Falcons at the break.

Bears QB Kyle Orton completed a 17 yard touchdown pass to Rashied Davis late in the fourth quarter to put the Bears up by a score of 20-19.

But the Falcons got the ball back and drove down field, and Jason Elam kicked a 48 yard field goal as time expired to give Atlanta the exhilarating 22-20 outright victory to cash moneyline tickets as well as football gamblers that backed them on the closing football betting line.

The Eagles also had a bye in Week 7, and they were at Candlestick Park in San Francisco a week earlier for an NFL betting contest with the 49ers. Philly was a 4.5-point road favorite in that game, with the ‘total’ going off the board at 41.5.  San Francisco matched the Eagles with a field goal, followed by a touchdown in the second quarter.

San Francisco was up nine points at the end of the third quarter, but completely collapsed in the fourth, allowing Philadelphia to score 23 points and come out on top with the 40-26 road victory.  NFL bettors who picked the Eagles to cover the NFL betting line were relieved Philly got this one, as were those players who picked the ‘total’ to go over.

The Philadelphia Eagles currently sit as nine-point home favorites over the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday in Philadelphia; with the ‘total’ slated at 46.5. is the best online sports book around to lay your action on this game.
