Atlanta Falcons Betting Odds & Game Predictions
Atlanta Falcons Team Report / 2017 NFL Atlanta Falcons Football Odds
If the Atlanta Falcons are going to repeat as NFC champions they will likely have to win a few games when their explosive offense is less than effective. That means the defense will have to rise to the occasion, and the group did that in Sunday’s win over the Chicago Bears. But it wasn’t without a few anxious moments. Clinging to a 6-point lead late in the fourth, the Falcons came up with a defensive stand on their own 5-yard line that defines teams.
It came with a little help as a Bears receiver dropped a pass at the goal line and two others were off target. But on a fourth down play with the game on the line, Brooks Reed sacked Mike Glennon to end the game. Every bit of that defensive effort was needed because outside of one huge play, the Falcons offense looked rather pedestrian.
It isn’t as easy to score 30 points a game as the Falcons made it look last year, and coming into the season as a favorite, they won’t be sneaking around anyone. Atlanta will get the best from its opponent every week and a letdown at any point could prove costly. Matt Ryan threw for 321 yards and the offense produced 372, but 88 of those yards came on one play. The Falcons needed their defense to show up and the group responded with four sacks while holding the Bears to 301 total yards. But the biggest plays came at the end when it mattered most and won the game.

ATS Result: Bears +6.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 48
The Falcons never trailed in the game, but it was much closer than most expected. The Bears twice tied the contest, but each time the Falcons responded. They took a 20-10 lead early in the fourth quarter on an 88-yard pass play to Austin Hooper and you thought the Bears would lie down after that. They didn’t and climbed right back into the contest with a score of their own. The Falcons settled for three field goals after failing twice in three red zone opportunities, keeping the score below the closing total.
Pre Season Atlanta Falcons Game Results
Preseason Record: 0-4
ATS Record: 0-4
Over/Under Total Record: 1-3
The Falcons were an over bettors dream last season, playing above the closing total 13 times in 16 regular season games and another three times during their playoff run. And they were consistently good, scoring at least 30 points 11 times and reaching the 40-point mark on six occasions. Opponents will try to adjust, but the Falcons have balance in their attack which will allow them to score a ton of points again.
