Last week plenty of favorites won and covered ATS, but this week I think we’ll see some underdogs win SU. The best underdog on the card this weekend has to be the Atlanta Falcons (6-0, 4-2 ATS) on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles (3-3, 2-4 ATS).

The Falcons remain undefeated after a comeback victory in week 6 at home against Oakland (23-20). Atlanta had a bye last week, and they should be rested and ready for the Eagles. Philadelphia lost 26-23 in OT to the Lions in week 6 and also had a bye in week 7.

Why the Falcons Will Beat the Eagles in Week 8

If you look at the home vs. away stat splits for the Falcons you’ll notice that they’ve played better on the road. Atlanta is 3-0 on the road with wins over the Chiefs (40-24), Chargers (27-3), and Redskins (24-17).

In those games the Falcons averaged 30.3 PPG and allowed 14.7 PPG. Both of these stats are better than their season average. I think the Falcons almost expect to win at home, so they come out stronger on the road to build up a lead.

The Philadelphia Eagles are 2-1 at home due to their loss to the Lions in week 6 in OT. It was a game they should have won, but they blew their lead and it cost them the game.

One of the big keys to this game will be the turnover battle. The Eagles have a horrible -1.5 TO margin per game, while the Falcons are amongst the best in the league with a +1.7 TO margin per game. On the road, the Falcons average a +2 TO margin.

The Falcons will need to get their 8th ranked passing offense (274.8 PYPG) moving quickly. They still rank amongst the worst teams in the league in rushing (86.5 RYPG – 29th), but that hasn’t stopped them from scoring plenty (28.5 PPG – 6th).

Defensively, the Falcons need to work on stopping the run – their biggest weakness so far this year. They rank 28th at stopping the run (143.8 RYPG) and that’s the only thing that worries me against the Eagles 10th ranked rushing offense.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Eagles Money Line Prediction

Bet the Atlanta Falcons Money Line +120 at BetOnline.com

If Atlanta can shut down McCoy it’ll force Vick to make plays, which he hasn’t done all season long. Atlanta has been better on the road than at home this season and with both teams well rested I have no idea why the Falcons are underdogs. Getting +120 on the last undefeated team in the NFL, against an Eagles team who has lost their last two games, and is highly susceptible to turnovers, I’m loving this money line bet.

I’m taking Atlanta +120 on the money line.
