The Falcons have a difficult slate of games ahead. Sure, they aren’t mathematically eliminated from the playoffs ... yet. But at 1-5, the Falcons are in a bad place with no obvious and viable path to relevance. This is about as close to a lost season as you can get.

So what are the oddsmakers saying about Sunday’s game against the Rams?

The Rams are currently favored by 3 points, according to Draftkings Sportsbook. I’ll be frank, I’m shocked the Rams are only favored by 3 points, even if they’re on a 3-game losing streak. Given how the Falcons have played over the last month, I’d expect them to be bigger underdogs. 68 percent of bettors are taking the Rams, for what that’s worth.

The Rams opened as 4 point underdogs with some online sportsbooks, so the line has shrunk a bit since it opened. The over/under is sitting at 54.5, with 68 percent of bettors taking the over.

Looking back, the Falcons are 1-6 against the spread over their last 7 games (1-5 against the spread this season). The Rams are 5-0 against the spread over their last 5 road games.
