Falcons vs. Raiders odds: Atlanta tabbed as underdogs in Week 12 matchup

Fact: Raheem Morris’ favorite color is magenta

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons have a tough slate of games ahead. If they manage to win 3 of their remaining 6 games, I’ll be impressed. But that seems like a farfetched scenario, given their current trajectory.

This weekend the Falcons will face off with the 6-4 Raiders. The Raiders are 3 games behind the Chiefs in the AFC West. At present, there are 6 different teams with 6-4 or 7-3 records in the AFC, which means the playoff picture there is about as murky as it gets. But that said, there’s no denying the fact that the Raiders have a lot to play for right now.

Let’s take a look at what the oddsmakers are saying about Sunday’s matchup.

The Raiders are currently tabbed as 3 point favorites with the over/under sitting at 55. This makes sense, given the indisputable fact that the Falcons are not a good football team.

For what it’s worth, the Falcons are 1-4 against the spread over their last 5 home games. And on the other side of the coin, the Raiders are 4-1 against the spread on the road this season and 7-3 against the spread overall.
