Today is the Day: the Patriots vs the Falcons
Today is the day football fans have been looking forward to since the beginning of the season. No, it’s not because of Lady Gaga, it’s how Tom Brady and Matt Ryan will perform in this game of the year. Odds change continually; however, the Patriots seem to continue have the edge as a three-point favorite to win. Betting presently has 67 percent of the bucks on New England.
New England had a 14-2 season. They are hoping to win their second title in three seasons; their fifth since 2001. The Falcons will be making their second-Super Bowl appearance after finishing 11-5. They are hoping to take home the Lombardi Trophy for the first time.
There is no doubt that Tom Brady and the Patriots would enjoy having a little revenge on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. If they take the game there might be a very awkward moment as Goodell will possibly hand the Lombardi Trophy to Tom Brady since Goodell forced Brady to miss the first four games of the season as his punishment for ‘Deglategate.’
However, the Falcons have scored at least 33 points in each of the last six games. This includes four regular games and two playoff games. The Falcons will need to avoid the excitement of the big moment they are at the Super Bowl and play to win. Brady has never had a loss with the Falcons. Matt Ryan has never beaten the Patriots. This could all change today! Who wants to place a bet?
