Green Bay Packers vs Atlanta Falcons, Odds, Prediction, Pick
As we head into week 5 of the 2011 NFL season, you'll see that it will feature what could potentially be one of the best NFL betting match-ups of the 2011 NFL season so far. The Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers have had some great games in the past, and this one should be excellent as well. The Falcons and Packers met in last season's playoffs, as the Packers continued their impressive Super Bowl run with a big time road win. This game could be a bit of redemption for the Falcons, or it could push the Packers to a strong 5-0 start to kick off the 2011 NFL season. Aaron Rodgers has been one of the most impressive players in the league so far this year, and his team has been playing big for him as well. The Falcons on the other hand have had their ups and downs, but have also been in a situation where 3 of their first four games have been on the road. Out of all of their first four games though, none will test them nearly as much as this match-up against Green Bay will. The Falcons are currently sitting at 2-2, and will need an excellent all around showing to knock off the defending Super Bowl Champions. This game will kick off on Sunday Night Football at 8:30pm.

Except the Falcons crowd to be all out for this Sunday Night Football match-up. While the Packers high octane offense will be tough to stop, I see the Falcons holding their own in this one. The Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, Roddy White, and Julio Jones lineup will cause some problems for a strong Green Bay defense, and I think this game will be close throughout. While I'm incredibly impressed by Green Bay this year, I think that the Falcons are one of the best coached teams in the NFL with Mike Smith. While I do think that Atlanta will put quite a bit of pressure on Green Bay, I see the Packers offense getting the job done late in the game, potentially on a late field goal.

This line has actually moved around a bit, and it ended with the Packers as fairly big favorites on the road. I do think that the Packers are a better team so they will win the game, but I'd be shocked if Atlanta didn't come out looking to make a statement and give this Packers team a run for their money. I like the Falcons getting points at home, so I'm picking the Atlanta Falcons to cover this one.
Pick: Atlanta Falcons +6
