Under is 10-1 in Atlanta last 11 Saturday games and Atlanta are 6-2 in their last 8 road games and are 6-2 in their last 8 overall. Philadelphia are 9-25 in their last 34 games on grass and are 7-19 in their last 26 overall and under is 10-4 in Philadelphia last 14 Saturday games.
I think Philadelphia has a better then average chance of winning but I’m not laying the chalk with a struggling team…
