Money Line: -122.00 Atlanta (Away)
Play On: Atlanta -122 (5*)
You can make the case that picking a winner in this game comes down to the lesser of 2 evils. My take is there are other underlying factors that leans heavily toward the road favorite Falcons. For starters, Atlanta will be playing with a week of rest and is coming off a 27-20 win over the Jets in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score indicated. Atlanta outgained the Jets in total offense that contest by a decisive 450-230. On the other hand, Miami has lost 5 games in a row and hit rock bottom in last week’s 23-20 loss to a winless Jacksonville team. Furthermore, this is a mentally fragile Miami team. The front office is actively pursuing a trade to bring quarterback Deshaun Watson in via trade and Tua being included as part of a 3-team deal. Lastly, Miami wasn’t scheduled for a bye week after playing in Europe last week and that’s a rarity. Bet Atlanta on the money line at -140 or less or on the point-spread at -3.0 or fewer.
