The Atlanta Falcons are a 1-point favorite over the New York Giants in Week 15.
The Atlanta Falcons host the New York Giants in a NFC heavyweight bout in Week 15. While the Falcons (11-2) are currently three games better in the standings, they are only a 1-point favorite at home over the Giants (8-5) according to OddsShark. The total currently sits at 51 points.
This is a matchup of two high-powered offenses, as New York is putting up 28.7 points per game and Atlanta is not far behind at 25.9 points per game. The Giants' offense was in prime form last weekend against New Orleans, dropping a 52 spot on the Saints. The Falcons' offense struggled somewhat in a disappointing 30-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Both teams have been so-so against the spread this season. Atlanta is 7-5-1 against the spread, while New York is just 6-7.
These two teams played earlier in 2012, except it was during last year's playoffs, when the Giants took apart the Falcons 24-2 in a NFC Wild Card contest.
