One date circled by football betting fans on the regular season calendar once Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick took over on a permanent basis for Kevin Kolb in week three was this week’s home game against the Atlanta Falcons, Vick’s former team. In the first half of the decade, the Georgia-native was leading the Falcons to NFC Championship games, while establishing himself as one of the biggest stars in the game, making Pro Bowls, and getting his face on video games.

Much has changed since then for both Vick and the Eagles, including a rib injury that may force the signal-caller to watch from the sidelines as Kolb makes the start for Philadelphia this Sunday.

Why To Bet On The Falcons?

Led by the second-ranked rushing attack in the league, Atlanta has won four straight games to earn top spot in the NFC South heading into week six. Running back Michael Turner’s 4.5 yards per carry is good enough, but when you factor in Jason Snelling’s career-high 4.6 yards per carry this season, it is easy to understand why Atlanta’s rushing game has been so dangerous. Quarterback Matt Ryan has complemented the ground game well in his third season out of NCAAF betting Boston College, completing three of five contests without turning the ball over, while throwing for close to 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns. The Eagles’ rush defense is ranked 24th in the league, and if they are unable to stop Turner and Snelling, that should open things up for Ryan. The Falcons’ defense will continue to show progress, with an added emphasis on getting pressure on Kolb in the pocket.

Why To Bet On The Eagles?

Philadelphia is ranked 13th in pass offense, 10th in the running game, but those numbers are skewed based on the other-world betting performances of Vick earlier this year. Kolb will likely get the start in this game and will look to build on the solid performance he put forward in the win over the 49ers, in which he threw for 253 yards and a touchdown without turning the ball over. Philadelphia will have to establish the run early at home, with running back LeSean McCoy leading the way, while finding out a way to slow Turner and Snelling on defense. The Eagles’ defense is all about pressure, so look for them to bring a variety of blitzes to get to Ryan.

How The Game Will Play Out

Chalk it up to injuries and quality of opponents that the Eagles have lost two at home, but won three on the road this season. Philadelphia is too good of a team to lose three straight at home heading into the bye week, with a date against Indianapolis the next game at Lincoln Financial Field. The Falcons have won four straight, and are overdue for a letdown.
