Falcons vs Seahawks Preview and Prediction
Atlanta Falcons vs Seattle Seahawks
The NFL's hottest offensive team, the Atlanta Falcons enter the NFL Playoffs with a tough assignment right off the bat: the former Superbowl Champs, the Seattle Seahawks. The Falcons are -205 on most betting lines and will have home turf advantage against a Seahawks team that was under .500 on the road. They have a comeback of +170. The Falcons finished first in the NFL in total points scored and second in total yards but the Seahawks have allowed the third-fewest points.
Matt Ryan, the Falcons' man under center had himself an MVP year recording career-highs across the board: passing yards, touchdowns, completion percentage, and QB rating. Sharing in his success are his proficient group of receivers led by the indomitable Julio Jones and prolific running backs like Devonta Freeman. But he'll need to bring his game against a Seahawks defense that still ranks in the top-ten in passing defense even without Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas. On the other ends, the Falcons' D needs to step up and can't rely on Ryan to get into gunfights as the Seahawks' Russell Wilson is quite the quarterback himself.
Falcons vs Seahawks NFL Playoffs Prediction
In a battle between a super-powered offensive team like the Falcons and a defensive stalwart like the Seahawks, it can be almost a coin toss. Defense usually wins out especially in the playoffs when the level of play is elevated and the Seahawks have more playoff experience but it's tough to bet against the red-hot Matt Ryan and the "Dirty Birds". Wait the lines to see where it trends but as it stands, the Seahawks have slightly more value at plus money and even if they aren't the best road team (3-4-1), the Falcons aren't invincible at home either (5-3).
