Falcons vs. Eagles: Updated Odds, Stat Predictions for 2018 NFC Divisional Game
A No. 6 seed has never been favored over a No. 1 seed in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, per ESPN Stats & Info.
But that could mean less to the Atlanta Falcons, who are favored by 2.5 points over the home-team Philadelphia Eagles in their divisional showdown on Saturday.
It’s amazing what a difference a quarterback makes. The Eagles lost starter Carson Wentz in December to a torn ACL, and though they went 2-1 to finish out the season, bettors and fans alike are clearly worried that Nick Foles won’t be able to carry the torch.
In fact, according to Westgate Superbook oddsmaker Ed Salmons (h/t ESPN’s David Purdom), the Eagles likely could have opened as 6.5-point favorites over the Falcons with Wentz under center.
Now the Eagles will have to take on an Atlanta team that shut down the Los Angeles Rams 26-13 in the opening weekend of the playoffs.
Let’s take a look at all the information you need to know to tune in to this NFC clash, as well as make some stat predictions for each team’s biggest weapons.
