The Falcons travel to Arizona this week to take on the 1-3-1 Cardinals. On paper it’s arguably the easiest game the Falcons will play over the next couple of months. So if they can’t win now, well, then I guess we’re headed for a top five pick.
So what odds are the Falcons facing 4 days before their Week 6 contest against the Cardinals? Let’s break it down.
The Falcons are currently favored by 3 points, according to Draftkings Sportsbook. They opened as 1 point favorites, for what that’s worth. 63 percent of bettors have taken the Falcons so far. The over/under is currently sitting at 52, which makes sense, given the Cardinals’ offensive explosion last week (514 total yards) and the ineptitude of the Falcons defense.
The Falcons are 1-4 against the spread this season. They are 2-10 against the spread over their last 12 road games. If momentum counts for anything, then the Cardinals certainly have the advantage. The Falcons are on a three-game losing streak while the Cardinals pulled off an exciting win against the Bengals last weekend.
