Rook33’s Solid Pick:   Coach Reid is 13-0 after a bye week and needs to continue that trend for an Eagles team that cannot afford to go 3-4 in a division being led by the 5-2 Giants.  Looking at the weather being a possible factor a glaring stat comes to mind Give/Take Atlanta +10/ Philly -9. And looking at an UNDER trend for both teams combined with the weather factor this game is coming down to a FG staying away for ATS. With that in mind Solid Pick of the Game: Under 45
