49ers vs Falcons NFL Football Spread/Handicapping

The Falcons pulled victory from the jaws of defeat against Seattle on Sunday.  Now they get a visit from a San Francisco team brimming with confidence and probably actually thrilled not to face the Seahawks once more.

San Francisco

It was just one playoff game but I think it is safe to say that the 49ers actually did know what they were doing when they strategically decided to make QB Colin Kaepernick their guy.  Not only did they beat Green Bay last week, not only did they cover, but they did so in a fashion that has made them a solid favourite on the road this weekend…

All CK did was overcome an early pick 6 to rush for more yards than any other QB in playoff history.

He and RB Frank Gore gashed Green Bay for more than 300 yards on the ground.  When he wasn’t prancing all over the field he was steady in the pocket, outpassing Packers QB Aaron Rodgers by repeatedly connecting with WR Michael Crabtree.

If he ever figures out how to get TE Vernon Davis involved, lookout…This will be an interesting one to watch as I can’t remember a road team favoured this late in the postseason.

If you can find SF at -3 I would jump on it right away because I am not sure the number will head in that direction.

I like them to actually win by more but confidence is the key in bet making.


This group of Atlanta Falcons finally won a playoff game but it was hardly an inspiring effort.  Atlanta looked great in the first half but surrendered the lead with less than a minute to go.  Ultimately they won the won game but without the momentum a playoff victory should bring.

It was more like an escape…

Early in the game the Falcons were gashing the Seahawks running the ball.

It was a surprise and you have to wonder if a team that wasn’t great running the ball can have that kind of success again against another top defense back to back.  I do like the ability of their receivers to be able to do some damage as on San Francisco’s defense cornerback is probably the weakest position…Atlanta is at home in this one and that should count for something right.

I guess the emphasis is on should.

This is another chance for the Falcons to make people shut up.

One more win and they are in the Super Bowl, whether they deserve it or not.

Spread Pick:  San Francisco -3.5
