Odds on Matt Ryan throwing for 300 or more yards vs the Patriots

Matt Ryan Falcons

Was Matt Ryan as good last season as advertised? Typically, when a quarterback wins MVP, his win-loss record and personal statistics usually swing the vote. But what if I told you Matt Ryan, stats-wise, isn’t as good as you think. Did you know that he has only thrown for 300 yards once this season and that he only threw for 300 yards six times last season? The perception is that Ryan is an excellent pocket passer with amazing receiving weapons. So why can’t he break the 300-yard barrier regularly? Well, if he can’t do it this week against the bottom-ranked New England passing defense, now might be the time for him to consider a new line of employment.

The odds for Ryan to pass for 300 yards or more against the Patriots is -120. Bettors looking for a great wager need to look no further than the New England defense. The Pats secondary has allowed a 300-yard passer in every game this season and it’s amazing New England is still 4-2 after six games. New England hasn’t been in the bottom 10 in passing yards allowed since 2012.

Although everyone remembers last year’s Super Bowl collapse, what bettors may not remember is Ryan still threw for 284 yards in that epic debacle. He could have had more if not for former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan’s awful play-calling that opened the door for the Pats’ historic comeback from a 25-point deficit.

The Atlanta Falcons are suffering from a Super Bowl hangover. It’s very clear from the eye test that this isn’t the same squad that dominated the last six weeks of last season and the NFC playoffs. But for this week (and with redemption on the line), the Falcons know the Pats’ weakness and bettors can expect new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian to try to run up the score to avoid any type of comeback attempt from New England.

Will Matt Ryan record 300 or more Passing Yards vs the Patriots?
  • Yes -120
  • No +300
