Pro Football Odds – Patriots Need Air Corps Together for Game with Falcons

Those people who are evaluating the pro football odds for wagering at BetAnySports may be impressed with the way Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have adapted to their circumstances enough to carry an undefeated record into the fourth week of the season. On Sunday night they will be making a visit to the Georgia Dome for a date with the Atlanta Falcons, with kickoff scheduled for 8:30 PM ET on NBC.

New England has dealt with a lot of injury problems, all over the offense. Atlanta is waiting for Steven Jackson to recover from a hamstring injury so that it can achieve maximum balance in its offense.

In the pro football odds that have been listed on this game by the people at BetAnySports, the Falcons are favored:

Atlanta Falcons -2.5 -120
New England Patriots +2.5 +100

Over 48.5 Points -110
Under 48.5 Points -110

It’s been commendable that the Pats have managed to improvise in the midst of losing so much in the way of firepower. After all, they cut Aaron Hernandez, lost Ron Gronkowski to injury, got only one week out of Danny Amendola, who was replacing Wes Welker, who departed via free agency. Shane Vereen had over 100 yards in the season opener, but the speedy running back from Cal was lost for the season.

Tom Brady has completed just 57.5% of his passes as he is trying to make things happen with different targets. One of them is Julian Edelman, who has been around the Pats’ camp for a while but never in this big a role. But as of the start of the NFL week, he was tied for the lead in receptions with 27, putting him on track have over 100, just like Welker did for many years.

Still, the offensive explosiveness that has characterized recent versions of the Patriots (+125 to win in the BetAnySports money line) has not been there, and so the defense has been aided by the fact that they have faced EJ Manuel, who was making his first NFL start; Geno Smith, who was making his first NFL road start, and Josh Freeman, who have proven to be so inept at the controls of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he lost his job to rookie Mike Glennon.

They’re not likely to find any of that with the Falcons. No, Atlanta will not have Jackson, a perennial 1000-yard rusher, this week, and Jacquizz Rodgers is not an ideal candidate to be an every-down back, but Ryan has all his receivers on hand, and that is a set of four, with Harry Douglas putting up some nice numbers (16 yards a catch). Julio Jones is the guy who is tied with Edelman for the league lead in catches with 27, and he supplies the explosive element the Patriots generally lack. Could that be what makes the difference for NFL betting purposes?
