Falcons vs Giants Betting Odds - Redemption time for fresher, healthier Giants

Posted by Stan Simmons on 11/16/2009 1:20:34 PM
NFL linesThe Falcons vs Giants betting odds pit two reeling teams against each other. Atlanta and New York opened the season as sportsbook juggernauts, going a combined 9-1. Now, they’ve crashed back to Earth, going a combined 1-7 since then, and both seek redemption in Week 11.

Falcons vs Giants betting odds: Spread, total TBD
WHAT: NFL betting
WHEN: Sunday, November 22, 1:00 p.m. ET
WHERE: Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ
KEY STAT: Falcons are 1-4 on the road this season
PICK: Giants

Falcons vs Giants betting odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
Maybe NFL betting players hopped on the Falcons bandwagon too soon. There’s no questioning Atlanta’s solid group of young talent, which includes Matt Ryan and Roddy White. But the Falcons are seriously struggling on the road. Week 11 gives them another chance to show their resolve. The Giants have lost four straight and have to hope a bye week is the remedy for their woes.

Falcons vs Giants betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
Both teams are dangerous on offense but the Falcons are obviously the flashier group. Matt Ryan has a great deep threat in Roddy White and a red zone target in Tony Gonzalez. However, things haven’t been so peachy of late. Before last week’s no-sack effort, the Falcons’ line allowed 10 sacks in three games on Ryan. He’s seemed jittery as a result, hurrying throws and tossing eight interceptions versus five touchdown passes over his last four games. Just when Michael Turner and the Atlanta running game were really getting going, Turner succumbed to an ankle injury that may be serious. Jason Snelling can fill in but doesn’t quite match Turner’s combination of speed and tackle-breaking ability.

The Giants’ offense is out of sync; well, Eli Manning is. He has to re-establish his comfort with his receivers. At least Brandon Jacobs is heating up in the running game. Because of Atlanta’s injury situation, these teams seem about even offensively entering Sunday’s matchup.

Betting Edge: Draw

Falcons vs Giants betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Falcons have to be shaking in their boots a little bit. Despite their recent struggles, the Giants still have the NFL’s No. 1 overall defense. They’ll be fired up at home, fresh after a bye week, and will put some major pressure on the shell-shocked Ryan. A major reason for the Giants’ slide has also been injuries to the secondary; welcoming Aaron Ross back to the lineup to play his first game all season should give New York a nice boost. Atlanta ranks 25th in total defense, so Eli Manning has a good chance to bust out of his slump this week.

Betting Edge: Giants

Falcons vs Giants betting odds for total:
The total for this online betting matchup is undetermined as odds makers await more news regarding Michael Turner’s injury, but I’d expect this game to fall under the total. The well-rested Giants should have their best defensive effort in several weeks and they’ll likely run the ball often against a poor Falcons’ run defense, controlling the clock.

Pick: Under

Falcons vs Giants betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
Even with Ross returning, the Giants are still battling injuries to defensive starters, as Kenny Phillips is out for the season. The Falcons have already lost safety William Moore and nose tackle Peria Jerry for the season; if Turner is seriously hurt, it puts them at a major disadvantage for Sunday’s matchup.

Betting Edge: Giants

Falcons vs Giants betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
It’s understandable if you’ve lost faith in the Giants, but the stars are aligning for a win. The Falcons are banged up, losing confidence and playing on the road, where they’re just 1-4 this season. The Giants are getting healthier, rested after a bye and facing a weak defense. Sunday’s contest is theirs to lose.
