We’re all wondering how many games the Falcons are going to win in 2017, and I’ve also been curious to see how many they will be favored in. If you want an extremely early look at the odds, though, they’re out there.
CG Technology and Covers offer up lines for every NFL game annually, and it’s interesting to see what they expect for the Falcons in 2018. They have the team favored in nearly every game they list here, with the only exceptions being the Patriots game and Week 16 with the Saints. I think it’s warranted, given the team’s 2016 fortunes, but I’m a bit dubious that it’ll shake out this way closer to the season, no matter how good Atlanta looks over the summer.
Here’s early lines for every single Falcons game...except two. For whatever reason, they have nothing for Falcons-Seahawks and Week 17 more generally. If you’re a degenerate, you may want to take notes and start placing your bets. I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts, even if you’re not the betting sort.
