NFL betting information shows that the Colts will still be without starting quarterback Peyton Manning as he continues to recover from off-season surgery. That could mean that the Falcons get a serious look by football betting gamblers in this game.
NFL betting information tells us that the Falcons have a new head coach in Mike Smith and a new general manager in Thomas Dimitroff. Smith helped Jacksonville build a nice defense and should do the same with Atlanta according to NFL betting experts. That could mean many of the Falcons games this preseason go under the NFL betting number. Football betting information has the Falcons with a quarterback rotation of Chris Redman, Joey Harrington, first round draft choice Matt Ryan and D.J. Shockley. Eventually the quarterback job will be Ryan’s but that may not occur right away according to football betting experts.
NFL betting has the Colts with a quarterback rotation of Jim Sorgi followed by Quinn Gray and Jared Lorenzen. The Colts quarterback rotation without Manning is definitely weak and the Colts may be a go-against this preseason in NFL betting. That is especially the case once Sorgi leaves the field.
The Colts and Falcons met in preseason action in 2005 as the Falcons won in NFL betting at the American Bowl in Tokyo, Japan by a score of 27-21.
NFL betting stats show that Atlanta has not posted a losing preseason record for four consecutive seasons dating back to 2003. During that time span, the Falcons have an 11-6 record according to football betting stats. They have six wins at home in that time period according to NFL betting numbers.
Week 2 NFL odds may have the Falcons a slight favorite in this game since Manning will not be playing. Many NFL betting experts will be looking at the total since Manning is not expected to play and Atlanta’s quarterback rotation looks young and inexperienced. Take a look at the NFL betting odds for this matchup today.
