Why the Seattle Seahawks are a good bet ATS?

The Seahawks primarily lost to the Ravens because Russell Wilson provided his worst performance of the season. The NLF MVP candidate completed 20-of-41 for 241 yards, a TD, and a pick. The Seahawks also lost a fumble that Baltimore returned for a touchdown.

Wilson is too talented of a quarterback to have two bad games in a row. The Seahawks face an Atlanta team that the L.A. Rams dominated in Week 7. Seattle should bounce back with a much better effort in Week 8 than they had this past Sunday.

Why the Atlanta Falcons are a good bet ATS?

Atlanta continued its incredible decline this season in the 10-37 loss to the Rams. There are a few positives. First, the Falcons held the Rams to only 90 rushing yards. Second, they didn’t fall apart until the third quarter. And, finally, when backup quarterback Matt Schaub entered the game, he went 6-for-6 and threw for 65 yards.

There’s a good chance Matt Schaub starts on Sunday. If Schaub gets the call, he could provide a change of pace for the Atlanta Falcons. That might be enough for the Falcons to cover the spread a big underdog at home.

Offense:
  • Total Yards: 367.4

Seahawks vs Falcons Final NFL Betting Analysis

The Atlanta Falcons might be worse than the Miami Dolphins at this point. Sure, the Dolphins have looked horrible, but with Ryan Fitzpatrick calling the shots, Miami will at least move the football.

How can a team with Julio Jones at wide receiver only average 20.7 points per? What’s more disturbing is how Atlanta allows an average of 31.9 points per game. Coach Dan Quinn has lost control of this football team. They’re a mess in every phase of the game and even though Schaub had success spelling the injured Matt Ryan on Saturday, he must face a determined Seahawks squad in Week 8 that knows it blew a game at home 7-days prior.

It doesn’t matter what the spread is. The Seahawks will cover.
