Atlanta, led by MVP-candidate Matt Ryan, scored 33.8 points per game. The team was an impressive 6-2 on the road, which bettered their home record by a single win. The Falcons won four games in a row to win the division, ensuring they’d enter the playoffs flying high, with an abundance of confidence.
Atlanta Falcons Next Regular Season Game
Come back here to view the Atlanta Falcons’ next regular season game. This is where you’ll find all the information you need, including start times and betting lines.
That initial lookover, however, isn’t enough. It can be if you’ve already done your research and plan to make a bet immediately. But if you’re not going through the sportsbook right away, you’ll need to return here and make sure the lines haven’t changed.
Shifting odds are a staple in the NFL. Too many things change in the days leading up to an actual regular season game. Injuries and returns shape the lines. Even early bets impact the odds; if a ton of action is going toward, say, the over, sportsbooks will be forced to change the over/under lines.
Staying on top of these potential changes guarantees there won’t be any surprises when you go to the sportsbook. Better yet, keeping up with the ebbs and flows of line changes prevents you from making a potentially ignorant, and thus completely compromised, bet ahead of kickoff.
Atlanta Falcons Game Schedule
This is the Atlanta Falcons’ entire game schedule, and it’s an understatedly important tool for anyone looking to boost their sportsbook game.
Some tend to overlook this information, deeming it generic and useless. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Looking at this schedule allows you to plan ahead. And though the official game lines won’t be available weeks in advance, studying matchups and team play styles will set you up to make quick, informed and accurate decisions once all the game odds are actually released.
Equally important, you can use this to look back at Atlanta’s past games to keep track of how they’ve done in certain situations (home and away games), against certain opponents (division, NFC, AFC) and when facing certain types of moneylines, spreads, overs and unders.
To sum up: Use this. Entire glances at schedules matter.
What Are The Current Atlanta Falcons Standings
Check out the Atlanta Falcons’ current place in the standings here—especially if you’re planning to invest in any midseason futures.
Team records can sometimes be useful when betting on individual games, but mostly when you’re betting on moneylines. Wins and losses cannot tell you much more than which squad is most likely to win; playing the spreads and over/under lines takes more research.
These standings are most valuable for those reviewing whether the Falcons are better than expected on the macro scale. As of now, they are on the fringes of divisional futures. If you’re trying to see whether they’ve become legitimate division plays or even NFC Championship or Super Bowl contenders, their place in the standings can tell you.

Atlanta Falcons Online Super Bowl 51 Betting Tips
The Falcons may not win Super Bowl, but they’re going to come awfully close. Atlanta are three-point underdogs going into the big game, which, based on recent Super Bowls, doesn’t mean much. Underdogs have won five Super Bowls in a row and five of eight.
They are, however, up against a team that looks destined to win Super Bowl 51. But if Atlanta indeed loses the Super Bowl, it won’t be by much. Bet Atlanta on the point spread as they should be able to keep it within a field goal.
Also, you’ll want to strongly think about backing the over, even though it’s at a record high 59.5 points. Both teams have dangerous offenses, especially the NFC South winners. They are going up against the stingiest defense in the league, as the Patriots allowed only 15.6 points per game in the regular season, two points less than anyone else.
Ryan will have to be the Super Bowl MVP for the Falcons to pull off the minor upset. It would be an incredible feat, considering the ace quarterback is also favored to win the league MVP. The Falcons defense is still, even though they’ve improved considerably in the playoffs, considered the team’s achilles heel. It will have to be in even better form to stop the Patriots, who can attack as impressively from the air and the ground.
Mistakes are key in any Super Bowl, and the Patirots are going to have to turn the ball over more for the Falcons to triumph. It’s been a brilliant run but the Falcons’ aspirational year could fall short at the final hurdle.
