These two sides met in Week 1 last year, a game the Falcons would probably rather forget.
A trip to the Linc resulted in an 18-12 loss, kick-starting a long run of defensive problems for Atlanta.
This time around the game is at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but even with home-field advantage, the Falcons have still opened as narrow 1.5-point underdogs.
Atlanta opened their season with a loss on the road to the Vikings last week as the Falcons struggled to contain the run.
Dan Quinn’s defence gave up 172 rushing yards and three touchdowns, while the secondary also gave up 98-yards on just eight completions through the air.
The Eagles have plenty of question marks about them though, which explains the value on offer head-to-head.
Philadelphia won 32-27 against the Redskins last week, but the defence left a lot to be desired as they allowed a last second garbage touchdown with 12 seconds remaining.
The Eagles have won seven of their last 10-games against the Falcons, as well as the last three meetings dating back to 2016. Philly finished last season 5-4 against the spread on the road, so you’ll need to look elsewhere for a safer play.
The Total has gone Under in four of Atlanta’s last five games against the Eagles, and considering the last three games between the pair have seen an average of 31 points, it’s worth backing this one to be low scoring.
Tip: Atlanta Falcons at $2.04
Value Tip: First Try Scorer: Devonta Freeman at $8.50
