Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has only played two career NFL games in temperatures at or below freezing. Why is that important? Because weather.com currently has the temperature at kickoff at 32 degrees and dropping.
How has Matt Ryan performed in those two games? He’s 1-1, but his performances have been quite average.
That’s good news for Eagles fans. Just another indication that things are setting up nicely for an Eagles win.
Also worth noting, as of this morning almost $500K has been wagered on the Eagles/Falcons game at various Vegas sports books. The majority has come in on the Falcons. Upwards of 60%. The number hasn’t risen above Eagles +3. That means Vegas is quite content thus far with people taking the Falcons -3. If they weren’t, it would go to Falcons -3.5.
Vegas thinks this is a close game or maybe an Eagles win. Let’s hope that line stays at Falcons -3 or drops to -2.5 or less. A large wager by a “sharp” bettor on the Falcons could change Vegas’ mind. So far, so good.
Fly Eagles Fly.
