The Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Eagles - A quick check of the Don Best NFL odds  screen notes that despite positions in the standings, host Philadelphia (3-3 straight up, 1-5 vs. the line) is priced as a 2½-point favorite over Atlanta (6-0 straight up, 4-2 against the number) at the majority of Las Vegas sports books, while the total is at 45 shaded to the ‘under’ (with a handful of stray 45½s) at most Nevada wagering outlets.

Kickoff time on Sunday at the Linc will be at 1:00 p.m. (ET), with big FOX providing the TV coverage.  Dick Stockton and John Lynch will provide the commentary.

Despite Atlanta’s undefeated mark, more eyes are probably going to be on the Eagles this week as both sides get back to action after their respective “byes” a week ago.  While it was an uneventful week for the Falcons, it was anything but in Philadelphia...for reasons we noted in our summer NFC previews.

At the time, we and many other suspected Eagles head coach Andy Reid was operating under the gun this season, and for good reason after last year’s 8-8 disappointment. Owner Jeffrey Lurie had even put Reid on notice that his job depended upon performance this season. To show he meant business, Lurie pushed aside team president Joe Banner (who landed with the Browns), a longtime confidante of Reid’s.

Technically, it is no surprise that the underdog team has covered in each of the first six games for the low-variance Eagles; Philly, favored in all but its 16-14 loss at Pittsburgh on October 7, is 1-5 vs. the line.  Totals trends are also shading to the ‘under’ for both (Falcons ‘under’ 5-2 their last seven since late 2011, Eagles ‘under’ 10-4 last 14 since mid 2011).

New Orleans Saints vs. Denver Broncos - The Don Best Pro Odds have Denver as 6-point favorites with a total of 55½. NBC will broadcast at 8:20 p.m. (ET) from Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

This is the first time Manning has faced his hometown New Orleans team since the February 2010 Super Bowl. He was a member of the Indianapolis Colts then and was shocked in the 31-17 loss as 4 ½-point favorites. A late pick-six off Manning sealed the win for the Saints.

 

New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys - The Cowboys (3-3 straight up, 3-3 Against The Spread may have peaked in that Giants game as not a lot has gone right since. They did pull out a victory at struggling Carolina last week, 19-14 as 1-point favorites, but the offense has trouble putting up points (18.8 PPG, tied-for-24th) despite being 10th in total yards (374.8 YPG).

The running game is a concern Sunday with DeMarco Murray (foot) doubtful after missing last game. Felix Jones was the main guy, but rushed for just 44 yards on 15 carries and is questionable with a knee injury.

That puts a lot of pressure on Romo. He didn’t throw an interception for the first time this season last game, but it’s hard to imagine that happening again versus the imposing Giants pass rush.

Dallas’ defense ranks fourth in total yards allowed (292.3 YPG), but just got devastating news with leading tackler Sean Lee (toe) out for the season. He has 58 tackles with the next closest at 32, and the Giants will try to run the ball at replacement Dan Connor.

Note the Cowboys are 0-5 ATS in their last five at home (0-2 ATS this year). They beat Tampa Bay (16-10 as 9-point favorites) before getting embarrassed by Chicago (34-18 loss) on MNF. Romo had five picks in that Bears game, which is the last time the home crowd saw him.
