San Francisco 49ers vs Atlanta Falcons Betting Preview
On Sunday the San Francisco 49ers travel to take on the Atlanta Falcons and try to claim a place in the Super Bowl XLVII.
The two teams have a well-established history; however, their rivalry has died down a bit in the last few years. Nonetheless, the chance of a place in the Super Bowl is sure to revive it, even if only temporarily.
Unfortunately for the Falcons the 49ers, with odds of 5/9, are the favourites to win. The best odds available on the Falcons are 7/4.
The two teams last played each other in the playoffs in 1999, it was a particularly harsh game with Garrison Hearst injuring his ankle and not playing again for two years.
Had he stayed healthy then the 49ers would most likely have won the game and they’re sure to be out for revenge this year.
Dirk Koetter, the Falcons’ offensive coordinator, said that he has prepared a few different strategies to attack the 49ers defence, “We always have a no-huddle plan. We always have a rotation plan, but when we get into the game sometimes it just doesn’t go that way. Sometimes your huddle stuff is going well, so you don’t want to get into the no-huddle.”
