NFL : Falcons Open at –4 Versus Packers

Offense has ruled the NFL playoffs thus far, and the league’s top two offenses will clash this Sunday (3:05 p.m. ET, FOX) when the Green Bay Packers visit the Atlanta Falcons. Atlanta opened as a 4-point favorite and drew enough early action to move the juice from –105 to –115 at press time.

When these same two teams met in Week 8, it was the Falcons (12-5 SU, 11-6 ATS) winning 33-32 on a last-minute touchdown pass from Matt Ryan to Mohamed Sanu. Green Bay (12-6 SU, 11-6-1 ATS) still cashed in as a 3-point road dog. That was the start of a four-game losing streak for the Packers, but they’ve won all eight of their games since at 7-1 ATS. Atlanta has won five in a row at 4-1 ATS.

Ryan is the heavy favorite to win this year’s MVP award at –1000, but Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is second at +500, and Green Bay’s offense has driven the OVER to the pay window in each of the last six games. The OVER is also 14-2-1 for the Falcons this year, including 6-0-1 since their Week 11 bye. Expect a gigantic total for Sunday’s Conference Championships.

NFL Odds: Packers-Falcons at the Georgia Dome

Who needs defense when you have the best quarterbacks in the NFL? Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons (12-5 SU, 11-6 ATS) host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (12-6 SU, 11-6-1 ATS) in Sunday’s Conference Championships, kicking off at 3:05 p.m. Eastern on FOX.

The Falcons have opened as 4-point favorites for Sunday’s matchup; they were 3-point home faves when they beat the Packers 33-32 in Week 8. Expect another high-scoring game with Ryan (–1000 to win MVP) and Rodgers (+500) taking advantage of two relatively weak defenses inside the cozy confines of the Georgia Dome.
