There is plenty of bets to go around when it comes to the Superbowl.
From the props to the spread to the Over/Under, there are endless possibilities. This is one of the higher totals in Superbowl history and finding value in this can be difficult.
The Atlanta Falcons have been at the center of plenty of high totals this year.
It’s important to note the Falcons were 12-6 to the Over this season and when playing at home they were a perfect 10-0 to the Over. Why is that important given the neutral sight here?
Atlanta plays inside a dome and while the roof on NRG Stadium is retractable, there is still a lot of similarities when it comes to the turf.
On the season, the Falcons averaged an NFL best 33.8 points per game. With Matt Ryan and his ability to sling it all over the field, this team can strike at any moment.
Defensively, they were one of the worst, which is where their solid Over record comes into play.
Ranking 25th in the NFL, the Falcons have allowed 25.4 points against. They’ll have their hands full with the Patriots offensive attack here, as they are going to be extremely vulnerable to the deep ball.
New England Patriots
New England’s O/U record this year has a bit of an asterisk by it.
After seeing Tom Brady sit out the first 4 games of the season, the Patriots offensive numbers can be misleading.
However, Tom Brady and company have looked unstoppable in the playoffs. After putting up 34 points against Houston, the Patriots picked apart the Steelers secondary, en route to 36 points.
Tom Brady just consistently makes his receivers around him better and while they do take chances deep down field, they are a team that can methodically move down the field with ease.
Defensively, the Patriots are an Under team.
They are one of the best in the NFL, as they allow just 15.7 points.
This will be a giant test for them though, as the Falcons aren’t shy about heaving the ball deep.
New England has gone Over in both of their postseason games with ease.
