Why Bet the Falcons?

The Atlanta Falcons were staring at an 0-1 start in the opener, as the Chicago Bears had the ball first and goal with under 1:00 to go. A touchdown and the extra point kick would have beat them. The Falcons got fortunate twice with dropped balls, and then two more incompletions led to a Falcons win.

Atlanta saw their quarterback and Most Valuable Player from a season ago, Matt Ryan toss for 321 yards and a touchdown in the game. Austin Hooper was the big story for Atlanta, with 123 receiving yards and a touchdown. The Falcons will go on the road in Week 3 and take on the Detroit Lions.

Why Bet on the Packers?

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers got off to a slow start in the opener, but fortunately for them – so did the Seattle Seahawks. The Packers eventually scored just 17 points in the win. Rodgers finished the game with 311 passing yards and a touchdown. Ty Montgomery rushed for a touchdown, with 54 yards.

Are the Packers a safe bet in NFL Week 2?

Green Bay saw Randall Cobb lead the receiving core with 9 receptions, and over 80 yards. The Packers are on the road for the first time this season, before coming back home for back to back home games. The Cincinnati Bengals and Chicago Bears come to town the next two weeks.
