Betting Seattle Seahawks
The Hawks are the road faves according to the best online sportsbooks. Seattle players met on the grass berm contiguous to their practice field. They did so for more than one hour and a half on Saturday morning. They chose not to practice that afternoon. What they did do was they spent that practice time on a voter-registration drive. Two weeks and one day prior to the Hawk’s opening game at Atlanta. Every player who has not yet registered in his home state received the forms and time to do so at the team’s Virginia Mason Athletic Center. Methinks this will come back to haunt them later on out on the gridiron.
According to this, “Carroll and Wilson have talked regularly — both openly and behind closed doors — about adding either [Antonio] Brown or fellow troubled free agent Josh Gordon. And the reality is that even if Gordon gets the call, particularly because he knows the Seattle system, AB will still be on the Seahawks’ radar in the likely event he’s available upon the conclusion of his NFL-mandated eight-game suspension”. Sure, let’s get a guy who by default will miss the first half of the season. That’s smart.
Per the best NFL gambling sites, Seattle is 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games. 12-6 SU in their last 18 games. 1-4 ATS in their last five games against Atlanta. 3-6 SU in their last nine games against Atlanta. 8-2 SU in their last 10 games on the road. The total has gone over in four of Seattle’s last six games when playing on the road against Atlanta. The Hawks are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games against an opponent in the National Football Conference. The total has gone over in seven of Seattle’s last eight games against an opponent in the National Football Conference South division. Seattle is 0-4-1 ATS in their last five games played in week 1.
Betting Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons’ starters went out to the field first during the last scrimmage. The offense already appeared to be in game-day mode. Starting their drive near the 20-yard line, the offense swiftly moved closer to midfield with a huge run to the right by Todd Gurley. And a pass to Calvin Ridley. Another big run from Brian Hill behind left guard took the Falcons’ offense into opposing territory. The unit then displayed its quick-strike skills. Well protected, Matt Ryan sent a perfectly placed ball to Ridley on a deep route down the right sideline for a long TD. Rookie cornerback A.J. Terrell was guarding Ridley and running step-for-step with him for the majority of the route. That is, until the third-year receiver hit another gear and created space near the sideline.
Gurley exhibited his speed, athleticism and vision to produce a few nice runs. He scored the second TD of the afternoon for the starting offense. He took a goal-line carry off the right end and dove between two potential tacklers to reach the end zone. Gurley took one handoff during the scoring drive and, noticing the middle of the field clogged up, turned and ran towards the left sideline. He managed to outrun contain and got the edge. Even though he didn’t have any blockers on the left-hand side of the play. It was a showcase of how quickly Gurley can reach top speed.
