Atlanta Falcons NFL Betting

The Falcons mercifully pulled the plug on the Dan Quinn era last year amid a third consecutive losing season. Of course, Quinn and the Falcons will never live down blowing a 28-9 fourth quarter lead in Super Bowl LI against the New England Patriots. Blowing leads became a staple of the Quinn era. Last year Atlanta's inability to hold large fourth-quarter leads led to his departure. Ironically enough, Quinn is now the Cowboys' defensive coordinator, in charge of preserving leads. Arthur Smith takes the head coaching reins after serving as the offensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans in 2019 and 2020. Gamblers aren't expecting much from Atlanta in 2021, as evidenced by their opening win total of 7.5.

2021 Regular Season Win Total: 7.5

Arthur Smith, age 39, is a career assistant that first started in the NFL in 2007. Since 2011, Smith has been in the Titans organization. With a strong offensive mind, Smith should find the weapons of the Falcons quite appealing.

Quarterback Matt Ryan was the third overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Boston College. Ryan was 2016 NFL MVP and is a five-time Pro Bowl selection. Ryan compiled a 93.3 quarterback rating and 26/11 TD/INT ratio. He has thrown for over 4000 yards every season since 2011.

Wide receiver Calvin Ridley led the Falcons with 90 catches good for 1374 yards and nine touchdowns in 2020.

Atlanta earned a solid grade for their class in the 2021 NFL Draft. Tight end Kyle Pitts of Florida was the fourth overall selection.

After one lackluster season in the backfield where he averaged only 3.5 yards per carry, former Georgia Bulldog star Todd Girley is a free agent.

Atlanta's defense was a train wreck last year with rankings of 29th overall and dead last against the pass. Dan Pees arrives from the Tennessee Titans with Arthur Smith as the new defensive coordinator. Pees has an impressive resume of two Super Bowl championships and tours of duty with the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens. Linebacker Deion Jones led the Falcons with 4.5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss in 2020.

The Falcons were founded as an NFL expansion team in 1966 and didn't make the playoffs until 1978. They have two NFC championships in 1998 and 2016. Their collapse to the Patriots goes down as one of the biggest Super Bowl debacles ever.
