New England Vs Atlanta NFL Betting Spread, Expert Pick & TV Info
It has been a long hard season in the NFL, and we are now just days away from crowning a new champion. Super Bowl 51 is an intriguing match-up, as it features the New England Patriots, a team that has made it to the pinnacle on a regular basis in recent years, versus the Atlanta Falcons, making just their second ever appearance in the championship game. There are a lot of great storylines in this one besides the experienced team going against the underdog. You have the best offense in the league owned by the Falcons looking to break down the best defense. You have arguably the best QB to ever play the game going against one looking to prove the critics wrong. This may not have been the Super Bowl match-up that everyone wanted to see, but I think we are going to be in for a real treat with this one. I expect it to be fast, furious, and high scoring. There are a ton of great reasons to watch and wager on Super Bowl 51 free picks.

Why bet on the New England Patriots
There really is nothing more that needs to be said about the Brady/Belichick era in New England. This will be the 7th time that the duo has made it to the Super Bowl, and if the Patriots can win it, Brady will be the first QB with 5 rings. Ironically enough, though, it may well be the defense that is called upon to be the difference in this game, as it will be their ability to slow down the Falcons that could swing the game in the Patriots direction. They will be looking to get pressure on Matt Ryan from the off, as you can bet that he will be more than a little nervous making his first SB appearance. This game may well come down to a turnover, and the Patriots defense can make that happen.
Why bet on the Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons have looked unbeatable over the last couple of months, and a lot of the credit has to go to their young defense. Yes, we all know that the Matt Ryan/Julio Jones connection is one of the best in the league, and that the offense has been putting up gaudy numbers, but the Falcons D has put it all together in the past few weeks. Many fans pointed at that group at the start of the season, suggesting that they would be the reason that the Falcons would fail to fly. That has not been the case, but you wonder how they are going to be able to handle a QB that has been there and done it a lot of times before.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
My hope, like the hope of all impartial observers this weekend, is that we get a great game. I believe that we will, and I also think it will be on the high scoring end of the scale. I have to go with experience when making this pick, which is why I am going with the Patriots to win.
