None of us have crystal balls, as this season vividly illustrated. Neither do the oddsmakers, but for what it’s worth, they’re pretty bullish on the Falcons being back here a year from now.
From Pregame.com, here’s a look at every NFL team’s odds next season, as of today. I’ve highlighted every NFC South team, in case you were interested.
2017-18 Super Bowl Odds
The Falcons should be considered one of the top teams in the NFC South if they can do the following things between now and next September:
- Add more talent to the defensive line, in particular pass rushers
- Hire a bright offensive mind to pick up where Kyle Shanahan will be leaving off
- Stay healthy
- Not spiral into a dark abyss of despair, never to return
Easy, right? For now, we’re left to daydream about a better tomorrow. Hopefully Vegas has things right.
