Betting Preview for the Philadelphia Eagles vs Atlanta Falcons NFL Regular Season Week 2 Game on September 15, 2019
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta
When: Sunday, September 15, 2019, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (1-0)
DeSean Jackson still got it. The wide receiver didn’t waste much time re-introducing himself to the Eagles fans, as he put together a sensational performance in his first game back in Philly, recording 158 receiving yards and two touchdowns on eight receptions during a 32-27 home win over the Washington Redskins. Don’t think that Jackson will be silenced after that game. The Falcons did not show much of a fight defensively in their Week 1 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, indicating a defense that hasn’t really done much improvement over the long offseason. Carson Wentz, who went 28 of 39 and finished with three touchdown tosses without an interception, will enter Sunday’s game confident he could hook up with his receivers again. The Eagles’ backfield is also staring at a grand opportunity to put up a party on the ground after seeing Atlanta give up 172 rushing yards to Minnesota.
The Vikings are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games.
Betting on the Atlanta Falcons (0-1)
Atlanta opened the 2019 NFL season with a loud thud, losing to the Vikings on the road in Week 1, 28-12. Quarterback Matt Ryan had pressure shoved in his face all game long, slowing him down on his way to finishing 304 passing yards, two touchdowns and a couple of interceptions on 33 of 46 completions. Apart from the picks he’s thrown, Ryan was sacked four times for a loss of 32 yards. Atlanta’s offensive line has got to step up and give Ryan enough time to at least see his best weapon in wide receiver Julio Jones, who only had 31 yards on six catches. He salvaged a touchdown, but he only had that when all but the final score was left to be determined. The Falcons are going to go as far as where Ryan takes them, so keeping the quarterback upright is of paramount importance.
The under is 3-1 in the Falcons’ last four home games.
The Eagles win, 33-27.
