Why Bet The Over
Well, there’s plenty of good reasons to play the Over like the fact that Matt Ryan and the explosive Atlanta Falcons led the league in scoring this season (33.8 ppg) while Tom Brady and the Patriots ranked a stellar third in scoring (27.6 ppg). Another great reason to play the Over is that the Falcons were overly generous in ranking 27th in points allowed (25.4 ppg).
If you need more reasons to play the Over, then you should know that the Over is 5-0 in New England’s last five games following a straight up win of more than 14 points and 6-1 in the Patriots L/7 playoff games.
The Over is also 4-0 in Atlanta’s last four playoff games, 5-0 in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 15-5-1 in their last 21 games overall.
Why Bet The Under
The best reason to bet the under 58 total [points is that New England ranks first in points allowed (15.6 ppg) and has not allowed more than 17 points in each of their last five games.
The Under is 4-0 in New England’s last 4 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game and 8-1 in their last nine games on grass.
Super Bowl LI Falcons Vs Patriots Over/Under Total Pick
A whopping 74 percent of public bettors like the Over 58 total points and so do I, for much the same reasons I liked the over in Atlanta’s NFC Championship game win over Green Bay…these two offenses are just too good to stop on a consistent basis. If you can get the total at less than 60 points, I say ride it hard people!
