Atlanta at Dallas
Sunday 09/07 04:15 PM Eastern
4 units on Atlanta +2 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: WIN
This one’s a bit tough. Atlanta was a playoff team last year while Dallas sucked. Things have changed a bit, which explains why Atlanta is getting points in this one. Mike Vick is out in Atlanta and the legendary Bill Parcells has landed in Dallas. If Vick was playing, Atlanta would be a field-goal favorite (OVERREACTION). Dogs and visiting teams that don’t win in the preseason are usually excellent bets (70%+ ATS) in week one. Despite Parcell’s presence, which will make a huge difference this year, I think Atlanta still has too much for Dallas to overcome. Remember, Parcells doesn’t usually do his real magic until season two. Atlanta should win this one outright.
