You look at the Monday Night Football point spread and total and think ‘gosh 56.5 is way too high,’ but then you check the stats.
Atlanta has averaged 30 points a game in starting 0-3 with two gut-wrenching losses. Green Bay has averaged almost 41 PPG in cruising to a surprise 3-0 start. Throw in the fact Atlanta is allowing 36 PPG and Green Bay more than 28 PPG and 56.5 may seem pretty low.
Those types of high-scoring games can be hell on point spreads and back-door covers. And Atlanta should be screaming mad to finally get into the win column against a Packers team that might be a little satisfied with themselves.
