Founded in 1957, The Gold Sheet is the country’s longest-running sports betting newsletter. Each week, the Gold Sheet team delivers analysis on every NFL and college football game. For this week’s NFL free pick, let’s take a look at an NFC matchup between the Falcons and 49ers.

Event: (327) Atlanta Falcons at (328) San Francisco 49ers
Sport/League: NFL
Date/Time: December 15, 2019 4PM EST
Play: Atlanta Falcons 11.0 (-110)

If there ever was a flat spot psychologically for an NFL team this is the one, with San Fran coming off emotionally draining battles vs. Green Bay at home than hard-fought 60- minutes wars at Baltimore & New Orleans. And, with rematch with hated L.A. Rams on deck, the 49ers are excused if they do not reach max intensity vs. 4- 9 Atlanta, which is where S.F. HC Kyle Shanahan served as the o.c. before taking over in the Bay Area. However, the Falcons, who’re playing hard to save HC Dan Quinn’s job, have been competitive in virtually every game since late October, including back-to-back road upsets at New Orleans & Carolina in November. And with Atlanta’s star QB Matt Ryan (300+ YP in 3 of last 4Gs; 10th NFL QB to reach 50,000 career passing yds.!) still winging it with the best of them & with RB Devote Freeman providing infantry support, believe the Falcons can stay within earshot at Levi’s Stadium, where the 49ers (0-2-1 as DD chalk overall) have covered only 3 of 6 TY. Atlanta 25 – SAN FRANCISCO 27


The Gold Sheet
Football season is here and since 1957, The Gold Sheet has been the original source for sports betting information! On their 63rd publishing season a new chapter of TGS, now officially located in Las Vegas. That connection from our former L.A.-area headquarters to Nevada has existed for decades, especially for those of us who have been based in the Silver State for several years. Rest assured, however, that the product and people who have been involved producing TGS for many years are still around to maintain the same standards that were set by founder Mort Olshan way back in 1957!
