NFL Betting Preview: Back the Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants to cover the spread in Week 9Published November 3, 2016
Recommended NFL Bets:
Week 8 of the NFL betting season, saw the once perfect Minnesota Vikings beaten for the second successive time, with the Chicago Bears winning comfortably 20-10, thanks to Running Back (RB), Jordan Howard’s superb display.
Elsewhere, the Atlanta Falcons beat the Green Bay Packers by a solitary point and at Twickenham, the Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals finished tied at 27-27.
Atlanta Falcons @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12:25am Friday)
The Bucc’s welcome the Atlanta Falcons to Florida, with the home side looking to close a two game gap to their opponents in the NFC South.
The Falcons beat the Green Bay Packers, but were far from convincing. Their offensive game is still strong, but defensively, improvements are needed, with this game being the fourth in a row that was decided by a single scoring opportunity.
The Buccaneers lost in overtime to the Oakland Raiders, but in reality it should never have gotten that far. Oakland’s indiscipline kept the Bucc’s in a game that saw them outgunned on net yardage by some 350 yards. Improvements to the Tampa game are sorely needed if they are to contain the Falcons offensive power. Falcons to win with some to spare.
Philadelphia Eagles @ New York Giants (6pm Sunday)
In a tightly bunched NFC East, the Philly Eagles travel to the NY Giants, with both sides looking to close the gap on the Dallas Cowboys.
The Eagles were disappointing in the defeat to divisional rivals Dallas. In the last twenty minutes, a ten point lead, turned into a six point loss in Overtime, as the Eagles defence melted before the Cowboys offence.
The Giants had the weekend off, but will come into the game off the back of a two game winning streak over the Los Angeles Rams and Baltimore Ravens. They look strong defensively, but need a bit more from their offensive line to challenge at the top. Giants to win a tight match-up by a single score.
