San Fran comes into this game with a 12-4-1 SU and 10-7 ATS mark for the season. They are riding high after an impressive 45 point outburst against the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round. They finished the regular season winning three out of four games, but dropped their final two games against the spread. The Niners are going to look to dominate the line on both sides of the ball, and will look to establish the run like they did last week.
The Falcons looked like a different team in the first half of last week’s playoff matchup, but then found themselves needing to kick a late FG to advance. The win put them at 14-3 SU and 9-7-1 ATS for the season, but was their second straight loss against the spread. They have failed to cover in three of their last five games as well. Atlanta will run a balanced offense, and should be ready for the read options attack defensively, as they saw it against Seattle last week.
San Francisco is a 4 point favorite. Atlanta will be prepared for this offense. San Fran may try to mix things up and throw the ball earlier, but that they won’t be as productive doing that as they were last week. Take Atlanta +4 at the sports book.
