Atlanta at New England Game Preview

 

The Falcons are sure to conjure up some bad memories of the last time they faced New England in last year’s Super Bowl and to make matters worse they are coming off back-to-back losses to Buffalo and Miami as solid home favorites. The total stayed UNDER VietBet’s closing line in both of those games after going OVER in two of their first three contests. Atlanta is now 3-2 straight-up with a 2-3 record against the spread.

 

To get past New England this time around, Atlanta is going to have to find a way to put some more points on the board. With a combined 34 points in those last two losses, the Falcons have dropped to 12th in the NFL in scoring with an average of 24.2 points per game. They are still one of the top offensive units in the league in terms of yards gained, but all that production on the field has not translated to points on the board.

 

The Patriots survived yet another close call in Sunday’s 24-17 road victory against the New York Jets as nine-point favorites. The win moved their SU record to 4-2, but they fell to 2-4 ATS. The total stayed UNDER VietBet’s closing 48.5-point line after staying UNDER in the previous week’s five-point victory on the road against Tampa Bay as 3.5-point favorites. New England is just 1-2 SU at home this season and it has failed to cover in all three games.

 

There is a reason why Tom Brady is a lock to enter the Hall of Fame someday, but this team has been pushing its luck all season long with its last three victories coming by a combined 15 points. The offense continues to move the ball up and down the field with an average of 412 yards per game; however New England’s defense is at the complete opposite end of the spectrum with a yards-allowed average of 440.7.

Both of these teams know how to put points on the board which is why VietBet’s total line is currently set at 55. This number is based more on past results as opposed to current form which sets up a golden opportunity to bet the UNDER on Sunday night.
