Two of the biggest surprises in the NFL will hook up on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 PM in Charlotte, and NFL bettors will get to satiate their betting appetite at Sports-Gambling.com. The Matt Ryan era is off to a booming starting in Atlanta. On Sunday, he completed 12-of- 18 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown against the hapless Kansas City defense.
RBs Michael Turner and Jerious Norwood combined for 179 yards and three rushing touchdowns. Parlay that with three interceptions by the defense, and the end result was a 38-14 blowout over the Chiefs. Football bettors with the Falcons on their betting ticket were handed an easy victory, as they were only favored by 6.5-points per the closing NFL odds.
Turner leads the league in rushing with 366 yards, and DE John Abraham is tops in the NFL with six sacks. The Falcons have now scored 30+ points twice this season after only topping the 30-point plateau once all of last year.
The Panthers traveled to the Metrodome with high hopes of raising their mark to 3-0 on the season. They crashed back to reality with a 20-10 defeat as 3.5-point underdogs on the football betting line. NFL betting fanatics who backed Carolina had to be disappointed after taking a 10-0 lead in the 2nd quarter only to give up 20 straight points to Gus Frerotte and the Vikings.
WR Steve Smith returned from his two-game suspension by hauling in four catches for 70 yards, but he was about the only bright spot the offense had throughout the games entirety. The running back duo of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart carried the ball 17 times for a measly 42 yards.
The offensive line didn’t fare much better in pass blocking either, as it conceded five sacks to the Vikes tenacious ‘D’. Carolina opened up as 7-point favorites with the ‘total’ coming in at 39.5.
