Atlanta Falcons vs Philadelphia Eagles NFC Divisional Playoff Vegas Odds & Free NFL Expert Picks

Atlanta Falcons (11-6) vs
Philadelphia Eagles (13-3)

Time: 4:35 PM ET
Date: Saturday, January 13, 2018
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Watch on: NBC
Odds: Falcons -3
Total O/U: 41

The Atlanta Falcons will attempt to play the spoiler role and maintain their winning form with a fifth straight victory as they get ready to clash with the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles with the NFC Divisional Playoff showdown set to be aired on NBC Saturday afternoon at 4:35 p.m. ET and live from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.

The Eagles took care of the Falcons winning 24-15 at home last season but that game featured Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz under center. Clearly, the Eagles are simply not the same without Wentz who was on his way to possibly win MVP honors before tearing in ACL against the Rams back on December 9.

While his replacement Nick Foles was impressive in his first start the week after throwing 4 touchdowns in a 34-29 over the Giants, he reverted to his old ways with two uninspired performances against Oakland and Dallas. However, with the third rushing offense in the league, he may be limited in throwing the football.

Yet, they will be facing an Atlanta defense that ranks ninth in the NFL at stopping the run. The Falcons are also a threat on offense finishing in the Top-10 in that category this season and are coming off an impressive 26-13 win against the Rams last week as a 6-point underdog. They enter this affair as a 3-point favorite, thanks to BetOnline Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 41 points.
