The Falcons come into the game at 4-1 while the Eagles are 3-2. It could be a game that is a tough one to choose a side when you make an NFL bet.
Kolb or Vick? There was not a line early this week on this game as the status of Michael Vick was still in question. The Eagles are probably going to be a 3-point favorite with Vick at quarterback and a 1-point favorite if it is Kolb. It is not a major difference in odds at SBG but people still like Vick over Kolb.
Falcons Finding Ways to Win – We have no way of knowing just how good Atlanta is. They are 4-1 but they easily could have lost against San Francisco and Cleveland. The Browns had them last week until Seneca Wallace got hurt and Jake Delhomme came into the game. He handed the game to the Falcons. Atlanta has a solid quarterback in Matt Ryan a good receiver in Roddy White and a good running back in Michael Turner. They still are not scoring that many points though. They could have a tough time against a good Philadelphia defense.
Eagles Up and Down – The Eagles looked very good at times last week in their win over San Francisco. Kevin Kolb was serviceable at quarterback and LeSean McCoy looked great running the ball. The defense even made some big plays.
