It's Back: NFL Monday Night FootballPublished September 14, 2015 by Sol FH
The 2015/16 NFL Regular season is underway and tonight's a Monday Night Double-header. Eagles vs Falcons and Vikings vs 49ers, with the action starting at 00:10 GMT.
It is officially back and it couldn’t have possibly been a harder wait, but the 2015/16 NFL regular season is underway and after a few days of action, it's time for the first edition of Monday Night Football. Tonight features a double-header between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons at 00:10 GMT, followed by the pre-season winners Minnesota Vikings against the San Francisco 49ers.
Eagles v Falcons
Tonight's game is the pick of the week for an upset. The Eagles are bet365's favorites at 1.65 and 2.00 on the spread of -3.0. This is good news for punters as the Falcons could upset the Eagles in Atlanta tonight, which will payout at 2.35 and 1.83 on the spread at +3.0. The Eagles are hoping for a big regular season and in many people's eyes, they are the favorites to take the NFC, but that doesn't mean they will make it out of Atlanta with the win in week 1.
The Eagles received an overhauling in the offseason with Chip Kelly saying goodbye to LeSean McCoy, Evan Mathis, Trent Cole and Nick Foles, and brought in QB Sam Bradford, Bryon Maxwell at Cornerback. DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews should have an amazing year and the Eagles best pickup, Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2013, Kiko Alonso should begin to post huge numbers.
Vikings vs 49ers
Terry Bridgewater had a difficult year last year, without Adrian Peterson at his disposal. Peterson is the most dynamic RB in the league and will help the Viking's playoff hopes this year. The Vikings' should be concerned about protecting Bridgewater, as Phil Loadholt is out with a season-ending Achilles injury, and an entirely new right side. The left side, covered by Matt Kalil was weak in 2014, but the preseason showed that they can trust Kalil to get the job done.
The Minnesota Vikings went 4-0 in the preseason, the only team in the NFL to stay undefeated.
The 49ers are still a question mark for many critics this year. The Colin Kaepernick fan boat has sailed and the QB will need to prove he has what it takes to get the 49ers back in the winner's seat.
Odds are in favor of the Vikings at 1.71, while the home team must overcome 2.20 to upset Minnesota. There are an additional 18 props available for tonight's games and punters can capitalize on stunning betting opportunities at bet365 all season long.
