5 Best Prop Bets for Eagles vs Falcons NFL Week 2 Sunday Night Football Game
The Sunday Night Football game for Week 2 features a battle of the birds between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons. As thing currently stand, the Eagles are a slight 2-point favorite on the road in Atlanta, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
With that in mind, here are five of the best prop bets for Sunday night's matchup between the Eagles and the Falcons.
1. Winning Margin (10-Point Bands): Philadelphia Eagles 1 to 10 (+200)
The Eagles and Falcons have played surprisingly close games over the past few seasons and, considering both teams have largely the same personnel, we could be in for more of the same on Sunday night. Dating back to the 2015 season, the Eagles are 3-1 against the Falcons, with all four games being decided by nine points or fewer.
2. Lowest Scoring Quarter: First Quarter (+200)
The Falcons and Eagles have two of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL on paper, but both teams had a hard time getting in rhythm in the early going last week. Philly and Atlanta were both shut out in the first quarter of their respective games in Week 1, and unless both teams have cleaned things up, both could be in for a low-scoring first frame for a second consecutive week.
3. First Second-Half Touchdown Scorer: DeSean Jackson (+1000)
DeSean Jackson proved that he still has plenty left in the in Week 1, racking up 154 yards receiving and two scores against the Washington Redskins. The veteran receiver saw four of his 10 targets come in the second half, including a 53-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. If the Eagles are down coming out of the half, expect Wentz to look for Jackson deep for a lightning-quick score.
4. Total Touchdowns 2nd Half: Under 3 (-116)
The Eagles and Falcons have good offenses, but they tend to buckle down on one another in the second half, if their last few matchups are any indication. Philly and Atlanta have combined for two or fewer second-half touchdowns in two of their last three meetings.
5. Anytime Touchdown Scorer/Match Winner Double: Alshon Jeffrey/Philadelphia Eagles (+390)
Alshon Jeffrey is an imposing receiver and is absolutely lethal in the red zone. So far, the 29-year-old wideout is one of only three Eagles with a red zone target and is the only one on the team with a red zone touchdown after scoring one in the air and one on the ground. He should see plenty of looks if Philly gets into scoring range this week. Additionally, the Eagles are 12-4 when Jeffrey catches at least one touchdown pass in a game.
