An 'unders' points bet looks the way to go in Sunday's second live Sky Sports NFL game.
Atlanta Falcons at Denver Broncos – Sunday 21:05, Sky Sports 2
The second live game on Sky Sports this Sunday night promises to be a fascinating match up in Colorado as the NFL's hot hand on offense the Atlanta Falcons travel to Denver to face the Broncos, one of the best defences in the league.
After last week’s victory over the Carolina Panthers the Falcons have now won their last three matches scoring 35, 45 and 48 points in the process. What happened in the opening day defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who’ve yet to win since, is anybody’s guess. They’ve well and truly put that behind them and currently rank 1st in the NFL in average points scored, yards gained and passing yards. Quarterback Matt Ryan is throwing yards and touchdowns while Julio Jones is without doubt the league’s best wide receiver right now.
That said, this Broncos defence will be their biggest challenge to date and in Aqil Talib they have a corner willing to go up against Jones as well as pass rusher Von Miller to get at Ryan. The Broncos lead the league in sacks gained and are top five in passing defence and points allowed per game.
The question is whether the Falcons can go to Denver and replicate their recent offensive form. It looks a tough ask to us so we’re happy to back under 47.5 points.
