These games are usually close so at the prices I'm on the Falcons at 4+ and looking to deal later

Saints win, Brees breaks passing record, all set up for the divisional title game on MNF, 331 might be plenty of yards but I can only play over....

I think the falcons have the tools to win but it's up to Ryan to execute

Ryan hasn't been great this year

I do think the league are a bit excessive about their 'prop' and 'over celebrating' rules, but I guess the players know the rules so pulling a bow out of your suit and sticking it to a ball is always going to be worth 15 yards.

Good drive there from Ryan, this could easily be a 70+ point shootout

to be fair i fancied the saints to win this but judging by the opening quarter the odds are much too far apart

will be close either way here
Report ArmchairIdiot December 27, 2011 2:15 AM GMT
I don't think Saints will relent, and the Falcons are more likely to give it away when chasing.
Report horse9 December 27, 2011 2:17 AM GMT
Games like this are usually decided by mistakes - a turnover maybe, missed FG.
Haven't seen the punters in 15 mins and doubt we'll see much of them at all, every possession could end in a score.
For those who played overs go to bed now, your work is done....

Kopland - he was a certainty to do it tonight, he even said in the week in interviews that it would be special to do it in front of National TV in a devision decider - sad thing is they actually have a decent running game as well, like Packers it;s just their defence that lets them down....
Report Josha007 December 27, 2011 3:04 AM GMT
Someone is offering 1/3 on Brees to pass for another 100 yards in the game.What do people think? Surely he will?
Report Kopland1 December 27, 2011 3:06 AM GMT
horse, yes i agree mate - they would be a REAL threat if there defence was half as good as their offensive game

Brees is just so good to watch though isn't he? Such an intelligent QB and so light on his feet as well

his decision making is second to none
Report horse9 December 27, 2011 3:07 AM GMT
He'll pass for another 75 definitely, question is that if Saints force a punt that gets returned for TD and the first possession Brees has he goes 75 yards whoch gives Saints a 25 point lead, I think it'll be Thomas, Sproles and Ivory all the way.
1/3 about right for me, but take 1/10 about another 75 if it's offered
Report Kopland1 December 27, 2011 3:09 AM GMT
the falcons are now 9.4 to win this one

slightly over priced? one score and they are right back in this - and they haven't been bad in the first half
Report Josha007 December 27, 2011 3:10 AM GMT
Mmm interesting horse9. If the Falcons get an early score then I think Brees will continue to pass.Colston and Graham look up for it tonight.
Report horse9 December 27, 2011 3:14 AM GMT
Kopland - I agree, he is an elite QB, though I have to say that had he been forced to take a few more cold road trips in their superbowl year the outcome may have been different - they played CL, FL and dome teams away throughout Winter and obviously had home field advantage throughout playoffs.
The real test of his career will come (as I expect it to) will be when he takes the Saints to Lambeau for the NFC Champs game at the back end of Jan when it'll be 25 degrees and probably windy and snowy.
Similar to Rodgers, Brees has so many targets, but I am a strong believer the passing game is easier indoors, when you watch Rodgers doing it in cold weather and wind it's scary how good the guy is....
Report horse9 December 27, 2011 3:16 AM GMT
Josh - if you're playing it you'll be wanting the Falcs to stay close that's for sure.
If Falcs get and keep to within one score I can see Brees chalking up 425 yards here
Report Kopland1 December 27, 2011 3:19 AM GMT
yer you make a good point horse - it will be interesting to see how he plays under such conditions

my praise of Brees was in no way meant to be me saying he is above Rodgers - far from it - i love watching them both - and this year Rodgers has been unreal

perhaps i should have phrased it better than "second to none" - as i am not saying he IS the best - rather that he is ONE of the best



how do you think the 2nd half will go here mate? can the falcons still win this do you think? big odds on a comeback @ 9.4
Report Kopland1 December 27, 2011 3:21 AM GMT
big interception for Atlanta there - risky play by Brees and got punished
Report horse9 December 27, 2011 3:24 AM GMT
Mate, I think we're just lucky to be in a time when there are so many HOF QBs, think Brady, Peyton, Big Ben maybe.
That turnover was huge for the game though I do think Saints will stay 2 swcores ahead for most of the game then kill clock late on, something around 31-24 maybe ?
My only bet is Brees over 331 so I'm quite relaxed at the min....
Report Kopland1 December 27, 2011 3:26 AM GMT
yer you should be fine with that bet pal - i thought that line for overs may be difficult before the game but he's eating it up so far

Ch 4 - trouble with their coverage is that US TV networks go to commercial every time there's a break in play, UK commercial stations aren't set up that way so you get average chat in a studio, Mike Carlsson is a very knowledgeable guy, I like listening him.
The 1.30-4.30am shift is desperate, Sky invest in some decent peoplke because 6pm-1am commands a much bigger audience - Cecil is awesome but they needed someone after Halling walked....

I think the first 4 possesions ended up in points, for me there was no reason to expect a 30 point blowout at that stage, what surprised me more was the play calling as they were getting success on the ground then deserted the running game, I think I'm right in saying they only ran the ball 3 times in the second half ????
