New England is in unfamiliar territory here as a rare underdog.  It is only the 5th time they have been in this position since 2010.  In each of those times, New England has been able to cover.

Likewise, it is also unusual to find the public mostly going against the Pats.  The Falcons were actually the third or fourth most wagered on side in the NFL this weekend depending on the book.

The line here is relatively small and if we look at the Falcons Straight Up at home we find that they have only lost four games on their own turf over the past three years.   Against The Spread the Falcons are 5-5-1 since the start of last season.

A loss will put Atlanta two games under .500 for the first time in head coach Mike Smith’s tenure.

A loss by New England will be their first of the 2013 regular NFL season. 

The point spread has moved from New England -1 to the current -3 with no movement above that number.

The total for this game is volatile with a range from 48.5 to 49.5

Quarterback Matt Ryan has completed 68.2 percent of his passes for 909 yards with six touchdowns in three games. He has only been intercepted twice in 119 attempts.  The problem with Atlanta is injuries piling up on the offensive line.
