Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
Facing the Broncos and Seahawks in back-to-back weeks on the road is trouble. It’s the time for the Falcons to show they are the real deal. Not to mention the Seahawks are fresh off a bye week where Wilson and others had a chance to nurse some bumps and bruises. The Seahawks will have a fresher quarterback who can actually move in the pocket and make plays with his legs. Also, Seattle’s secondary isn’t going to allow Julio Jones and others to run wild like they have done up to this point.
My final score prediction is Atlanta 27, Seattle 31.
