It has the Falcons picking up the win by two points and for the total to be fifty.
With the bookmakers, as of the time of writing, offering Atlanta as three-point favourites and a total line set at forty-four, it has Carolina covering the spread as home dogs and for the over to hit.
I have had a look at the database, which has results dating back to 2001, to see if anything stands out. It did not make for positive reading.
- Carolina are 12-14-1 against the spread as underdogs against Atlanta
- They're 3-5-1 as home underdogs
- The Over is 15-25-3 over all the meetings since 2001
- The Over is 5-14-2 when Carolina is the home team
Not good at all!
The spreadsheet is 8-8 for the year.
Last week, it went 1-1 with a winning play on Houston +14 against the Philadelphia Eagles and a losing one on the game to fall below 45.5 points. The final score was 29-17 to the Eagles
