Philadelphia Eagles (-3) at Atlanta Falcons (+3); Total 50
Great Matchup for the Sunday Night game between the Eagles and the Falcons. The Eagles are coming off a comfortable win over the Rams last week. The Falcons are coming off a tough loss against the Bears in week #1. This week presents a tough matchup for Atlanta and Matt Ryan. The Eagles pass defence is solid and the Falcons will need to run the ball effectively to have any shot at winning this game. Expect Michael Turner to be the deciding factor in this game. Even though the Eagles won last week they did not defend the run very good at all. Rams RB Stephen Jackson opened the game with a 47 yard TD run against the Eagles. After Jackson left the game due to injury Rams backup RB Cadillac Williams gashed the Eagles defence for 91 yards on 19 carries (4.8 yards / carry). We expect Turner to have a big game here tonight. Turner had 100 yards on just 10 carries last week vs. the Bears on the road. Rather than take the Falcons against a tough Eagles team it is the prop bet for rushing yards by Michael Turner we are going to focus on. Currently the Prop Bet for Turner’s rushing yards is set at 85.5 yards slightly favored to the OVER at Bodog Online Sportsbook. We will take Falcons RB Michael Turner to go OVER 85.5 rushing yards in tonight’s Sunday Night game.
Taking RB Michael Turner OVER 85.5 Rushing Yards @ 1.83
