Eagles vs Falcons Prediction: Spread

Going back two seasons is the last time we saw these two teams play. The Falcons came out with the victory 24-20. Quarterback Matt Ryan had 310 passing yards and 3 touchdown passes in the game. Wide Receiver Calvin Ridley had a touchdown in the game and had eight catches for 105 yards.

Last season, Calvin Ridley recorded a career-high of nine receptions for 130 yards and had two touchdowns in week one. He would go on to have multiple over 100-yard games last season. Ridley was targeted 143 times last season and had 1,374 total yards. This year he is looking to continue his run game and help cover the spread in this week one game. The Falcons offense is going to cover the spread.

Eagles vs Falcons Prediction: MoneyLine

The Falcons slightly won the last match-up back in 2019. They won 24-20 against the Eagles in that game. Last season both teams finished near last in their respective conferences. The Falcons are looking to change that this season with the help of their leader on the field Matt Ryan.

The Falcons are going to win in a close game. The majority of the Falcons losses to the Eagles have been in Philadelphia. They are in Atlanta this week so the home crowd will help. Look for a close game but the offense for Atlanta, led by Ryan will come through with the win.

  • Free Prediction: Atlanta (-176)

Eagles vs Falcons Prediction: Total

In both the Eagles and Falcons last 16 games the total has gone over in seven of sixteen games last season. The Falcons gave up 25.9 points per game on average ranking 19th in the NFL last season. While the Eagles gave up 26.1 points per game on average giving them the rank of 20th in the NFL on spot behind the Falcons.

Look for the total to go over in this game. Both teams struggled defensively last season. The game will be a close one but the offense for the Falcons will show for the better in this game.
