NFL betting numbers show that the Philadelphia Eagles are laying more than a touchdown to Atlanta in NFL odds Week 8 numbers.
This might seem a bit strange considering that the Falcons come into the game with the better record at 4-2. Gamblers that bet on football still give the Eagles a lot of respect and the NFL betting pointspread reflects that fact.
NFL betting history shows that the Eagles have won six of the last ten meetings between the two teams and covered seven of those games. Despite the fact that the teams play in different divisions the Eagles and Falcons have played six times this decade according to NFL betting numbers. The Eagles have won five of those games and are 4-1-1 versus the NFL betting pointspread. The last meeting was in Philadelphia in 2006 as the Eagles won 24-17 according to NFL betting statistics. The Eagles have really not been a good home favorite in recent seasons according to NFL betting stats. They have failed to cover the spread almost 60% of the time at home since 2005 according to NFL betting numbers.
Gamblers that bet on football totals may want to take a look at this NFL betting matchup. The last five meetings between the two teams have gone under the total according to NFL betting numbers. That is a very strong NFL betting trend and although things change each season, the under should get a strong look from gamblers that bet on football. It also helps that the Falcons have been a great under team on the road in recent seasons. Since 2005, the Falcons on the road have gone under the total almost 67% of the time according to NFL betting stats.
The Eagles are facing a lot of pressure to win this game from their fans, especially since they are coming off a bye week. At 3-3 the Eagles are still very much in the running this season but a loss here would clearly put them behind the eight ball in the tough NFC East. The Falcons also need a win if they intend to stay at the top of the NFC South with Carolina and Tampa Bay. Sunday’s game should be an exciting one for gamblers that bet on football to watch.
