Football Betting – Atlanta Falcons at St. Louis Rams

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

The Atlanta Falcons will try and make it four straight on Sunday and they are favored in football betting at St. Louis.

The Falcons have the best record in the NFC but they are just 3-point road favorites in NFL football betting against the Rams at Sbg global.

The Rams have not won five games in a season since 2003 but if they can upset the Falcons they would get to 5-5 and back into the playoff picture.  Quarterback Sam Bradford has played well and the Rams have had a chance to win in almost every game this season. The Rams suffered an overtime loss last week to San Francisco. The Rams are 1-4 this season in games decided by four points or less.  The Falcons are coming off a big win in their last game as they were able to win late and beat the Baltimore Ravens.

Rams 4-1 at Home
The Rams have been excellent at home this season and are currently on a four-game home winning streak.  To make it five straight the Rams will have to slow down an Atlanta offense that is averaging 369.2 yards and 24.7 points per game. Atlanta has been led by wide receiver Roddy White who leads the league with 70 receptions and is second with 934 yards.
