Atlanta Falcons will take on the Detroit Lions in Week 3 on Sunday
The Detroit Lions started the season with a comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals. They played their second game of the season with a 24-10 win against the New York Giants on Monday night. The Atlanta Falcons are playing well again this year and are building momentum. The Falcons are 2-0 after defeating Green Bay 34-23 last weekend. This NFL game in Week 3 is scheduled for Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 1 p.m. ET at Ford Field.
The Detroit Lions could turn heads with an upset victory but it will be tough against the Falcons. Quarterback Matthew Stafford didn’t have a great day against New York on Monday night. Stafford threw for just 122 yards and lost a fumble. However, the Lions never trailed in their 24-10 win. The difference in this game was Detroit’s swarming defense. The defense is continuing to get better. If the Lions have any chance of slowing down the Falcons, they must keep Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones in check. That responsibility could fall on Darius Slay, the Lions top cornerback. Slay and the rest of the Lions need to force the other wideouts to beat them in this one.
Atlanta Falcons and quarterback Matt Ryan had a dominating victory against the Green Bay Packers Sunday night. Ryan threw for 252 yards and a touchdown. Julio Jones finished with five catches for 108 yards. Freeman rushed for 84 yards, and Tevin Coleman had 42 yards on the ground plus a touchdown catch. Trufant scored a defensive touchdown and a crucial interception near the end of the first half. The Atlanta Falcons have a lot of weapons on offense that can still put up a lot of points even without Jones. However, if Jones cannot be contained Atlanta will light up the scoreboard. The scoring total should be high with a ton of passes. Sportsbooks Games take the Falcons to win this game.
Watford hosts Manchester City in Premier League match at Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday
Manchester City head into Saturday’s football game against Watford after their thrilling 5-0 win over Liverpool. The Citizens need to keep their momentum and aim to take the top position in the Premier League. Watford managed to beat Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium last weekend. Watford FC is currently ranked 4th in the Premier League standings with 8 points. Manchester City FC is ranked 2nd with 10 points. Watford FC will host Manchester City FC, at Vicarage Road, at 1500 BST on Saturday, September 16, 2017.
Watford FC scored a victory at Southampton under head coach Marco Silva last weekend. The Hornets midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure put the Hornets ahead. He and midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah have done well behind forwards Andre Gray and Richarlison. These players are the reason Watford FC is unbeaten with eight points from four games. The Hornets are playing with a lot of confidence at the moment. They have a good team and a lot of strength in the team up front.
Manchester City did crush Liverpool 5-0, but Sadio Mane had to leave in the first half of the game. The Blues midfielder Kevin De Bruyne passing skills helped to carve open Liverpool. Forwards Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero are developing a genuine partnership and they seem to be meshing well. Man City can bring on midfielder Leroy Sane just as defenders are tiring, which spells trouble for opponents. The Blues suffered from some slow starts before, but can now kick on and show their class. Man City attacking partnership of Aguero and Gabriel Jesus was in a perfect working order against Liverpool. Sportsbooks Games predict that the Citizens are going to extend their winning run in the national championship.
Philadelphia Eagles take on Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri
The Kansas City Chiefs opened the season with an impressive win over the defending champion New England. The Chiefs scored 42 points on defending Super Bowl champions, registering an eye-opening upset. They will try to keep that momentum when they match up with the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. The Eagles were impressive in their season opening road win over the Redskins. This football game is scheduled for Sunday, September 17, 2017, at 1 p.m. ET at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Kansas City Chiefs has a solid defense. If the Chiefs offense take the next step and be explosive, this team will be tough to handle. During the season opener speedy wideout Tyreek Hill and rookie Kareem Hunt made a pair of 75-plus-yard TD receptions. Keep in mind the upset of New England was only one game. Quarterback Alex Smith has the reputation of being a conservative game manager.
The Philadelphia Eagles should be able to make this one a grind out tough affair. The Eagles has a very talented defense which did not allow the Washington running game to get going last week. The Philadelphia Eagles offense seems to coming along also. Quarterback Carson Wentz started his second year by completing 26 of 39 passes for 307 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. The new running back LeGarrette Blount and new wide receiver Alshon Jeffery made great contributions duing the game. Also, wide receiver Nelson Agholor made six receptions for 86 yards and a 58-yard TD catch. Sportsbooks Games believes this game should to be low-scoring because both defenses are very talented and gives an edge to the Chiefs at home.
Manchester City will play host to Liverpool FC in this match at Etihad on Saturday, September 9. The kick-off is scheduled for 12:30 BST/07:30 ET. The match will be shown live on Sky Sports Premier League. Both sides sit in the top four after collecting seven points from their opening three games. Both sides have started the season with two wins and a draw. They are both Premier League title hopefuls. Manchester City are still seeking a first home win after being held to a 1-1 draw by Everton. Liverpool have won both their home games, including a 4-0 impressive win of Arsenal. A win for either side in this match would send the victors to the top.
Manchester City has only dropped two points from their first three fixtures so far. Raheem Sterling will be suspended for Manchester City for this match. Pep Guardioala has assembled talented players but they have been far from convincing so far. The Sky Blues wore down Brighton well enough but were then held to a draw at home by Everton. They also came away with a 2-1 win at Bournemouth with seven minutes into stoppage time. City weren’t dominant or coherent in their play. They seem to have a lack of tactical understanding at the moment.
Liverpool didn’t have the best start to the season but are level with City on seven points. Klopp is now adding Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, which will give this well-balanced squad another boost. The earlier signings of Mohamed Salah, Andrew Robertson and Dominic Solanke are already settling in nicely. Liverpool’s front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have been unstoppable this season. The Reds have a high-tempo game plan to unsettle their hosts. Sportsbooks Games has to give the edge to The Reds in this fixture.

This duel will take place on Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 8:30 p.m. ET from Gillette Stadium. The game will be broadcast on NBC.
The New England Patriots are among the top teams in the NFL in sacks allowed. a New England quarterbacks were sacked just 27 times last season, tied for fifth-best in the NFL. The tackles, Nate Soldier and Marcus Cannon deserve the credit for that. However the Chiefs have one of the most intimidating pass rushes in the NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs should be able to send Tamba Hali, Justin Houston and Dee Ford after Brady. These players combined for 17.5 sacks last season.
The Patriots will have to play without its top wide receiver Julian Edelman. He suffered an ACL tear during last week’s preseason contest in Detroit. Also, the Chiefs running back Spencer Ware suffered a torn PCL in the team’s third preseason game. The injury will likely require surgery and might keep Kansas City’s number one running back out for the entire 2017 campaign. Ware was the top offensive weapon last year for the Chiefs with 1,368 yards from scrimmage. With Ware being out Sportsbooks Games undoubtedly will give the Patriots an edge in this one.

Manager Jose Mourinho will leave Manchester United under no illusions as to the importance of this match.

Etihad Stadium hosts its first game of the 2017/18 season as Everton takes on Manchester City
The Manchester City team this year looks like it’s going to be top contender for the Premier League title this year. Manchester City can bounce right back from their first loss at Tottenham. Manchester City looks like it could be back at 100 percent in this matchup on the health front. Benjamin Mendy and Ilkay Gundogan are going to be back perhaps as early as this one. Argentinian professional footballer, Sergio Aguero seems to be back in tip top form after struggling for much of last season. Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne could start after his injury but he is in question. Midfielder Fernandinho, looks like a new man at the age of 32. His offseason got him back in good health and h\he is playing at a high level.
Everton is a side that can make this match a nightmare for the Citizens, though. Ross Barkley’s season is off to a rocky start for Everton. He has yet to get on the pitch thanks to a hamstring problem that will keep him off for this one as well. Everton has spent big buying Wayne Rooney, Jordan Pickford and Gylfi Sigurdsson. Everton have lost lethal forward Romelu Lukakau to Manchester United. Gareth Barry is hoping to get back on the pitch after sitting out the opener with an ankle injury. Same could be said for Aaron Lennon. James McCarthy’s knee will probably keep him out of the lineup for this match as well.
If Everton comes out victorious at the Ethiad then people will know another English powerhouse is emerging. If Manchester City wins this match then count them on being favorites for the Premier League title. Sportsbooks Games will give Manchester City the edge to win this match at Etihad Stadium.

Manchester United will start their premier league campaign against West Ham United
Manchester United is a team capable of winning the Premier League this season. The Red Devils will have home field advantage in this match. The addition of Romelu Lukaku is going to help out. He will step into the role that Wayne Rooney had before being transferred.
The big summer signing really feels like it’s creating a huge jump for the Devils. They are favored by a goal and a half against a West Ham team that figures to be better than it was last year when it was threatened by relegation for most of the term.
West Ham United F.C. has some problems at the back right now that need to be fixed. The team has played two games in the preseason. One match was a 3-3 draw against Altonaer FC von 1893. The other match was 3-0 loss to Manchester City.
Manchester United was in good form this preseason. They played well in the International Cup of Champions. However, when they played a top notch team in the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid, the club was beaten 2-1 and was never really in the fixture. Manchester United isn’t going to blow a lot of teams out by three goals, but it’ll win a lot of matches and play a lot of unders. This could be the day that Lukaku gets his first goal for his new team on the grandest stage. Even with the Hammers having a terrible defense, the under still feels like the right play to us. We give the edge in this match to the Red Devils.
This Barclays Premier League action from Old Trafford will take place at 11 a.m. ET on Sunday, August 13, 2017. The match will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network.
