Can Matt Ryan finally win a playoff game? Have the Seattle Seahawks suddenly become road warriors? Let's dig into this compelling match-up and see where the value lies.
Here's an interesting point spread to talk about. Last week in the Vegas look-ahead lines, the Falcons were listed as -3 point favorites vs the Seahawks, but after Seattle handled the Redskins they re-opened it at -2.5.
So what's changed during the week? Well, not much. Perhaps reluctantly, most books have moved the line to -3 with a bit extra juice if you like the underdog (odds from SBRforum). Essentially this line sits at -2.75 so if you like the Falcons you can grab -2.5 at an affordable price too.
The Dark Cloud of Failure
The Falcons coaches and players can talk all they want about how they aren't thinking about their lack of playoff success, but that's the most obvious lie of the century.
