ESPN NFL Expert Picks Falcons vs. Chiefs
In Sports Gambling looking how a team has done against the spread (ATS) is key and last season the Chiefs were 6-10 ATS and the Falcons were 10-6 ATS. In an interesting betting trend the Chiefs did not cover the spread in their last 4 games. That’s why is crucial to come to the ESPN NFL Expert Picks to read up on games first before placing bets.
ESPN NFL Expert Picks – Chiefs Offense has Issues while the Falcons do Not
There is a lot of pressure on Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel after he struggled last season. There is a lot of hope for him this season. Not only is leading WR Dwayne Bowe back in the fold after a hold out, but Tony Moeaki is coming back from a major knee injury and will give him yet another weapon.
Last season star RB Jamal Charles was lost for the year with a knee injury and he is also back. If he can get Kansas City back to having a legit rushing offense it will take a ton of pressure off Cassel, as he will not have to do it all. While Charles will have to deal with a solid Atlanta run defense that ranked 6th in the league last season Cassel will be facing a sketchy Falcons’ pass defense that only ranked 20th last season.
Matt Ryan has had his issues in the playoffs, but he has been solid in the regular season. He has a couple of great WT targets in Roddy White and Julio Jones as well as the ageless TE Tony Gonzalez. The Chiefs had a great pass defense last season, but they suffered big blow in the off-season when star CD Brandon Carr bolted for the Big D. One thing the Chiefs need to do is get to Ryan and Tamba Hali, who had 12 sacks last season, leads a solid Kansas City pass rush.
One thing the Chiefs really struggled with last season was defending the run ranking 26th in the league in that category. They drafted DT Dontari Poe in the first round to remedy that and he and the Chiefs will be facing Atlanta RB Michael Turner, who rushed for 1,340 yards with 11 TD last season.
Vegas NFL Odds have the Falcons as the road favorite because of the offense they have. The Chiefs do not have a team that can light up the scoreboard and if their defense cannot contain Ryan and Turner they may be in for a work of hurt. Last season the Falcons scored at least 30 points in 7 games.
ESPN NFL Expert Picks Going with the Away Team in this Match Up
While the Falcons are the away favorite they are only giving up 1 point and they were only a .500 team on the road last season. However, ESPN NFL Picks still going with the Falcons as 1-point favorites with a pretty low total, at least for a Falcon’s game, of 41.
