Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl LVII Betting

The Matt Ryan era has ended for the Atlanta Falcons. Ryan will go down as the greatest quarterback in Falcon history. But he has gone off to the Indianapolis Colts, where he will try to win a Super Bowl at the end of his career.

Second year head coach Arthur Smith arrived from the Tennessee Titans, where he was the offensive coordinator. Smith will begin training camp with Marcos Mariota as the starting quarterback. Rookie Desmond Ridder is projected to be the backup.

Once upon a time, Marcus Mariota was a thing. Mariota was the Tennessee Titans' second overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Oregon. Mariota was sold as the man that would transform the Titans franchise. In 2017 he led the Titans to the playoffs but faded from that point. Injuries and better alternatives have put him on the bench ever since.

Ridder was the star quarterback of the Cincinnati Bearcats. He is a dual-threat quarterback like Mariota used to be. Should the season get away from the Falcons, Ridder could be given the opportunity to show what he can do.

The record of Mariota is hardly causing a rush to the betting window for the future market. This looks like a long season ahead for the Falcons.

Smith was never a head coach until taking the Falcons job. And he is likely not to last more than another year or two unless he can engineer a turnaround that seems to be unlikely.

The Falcons used to be a hot property that the networks liked. But those days are over. Atlanta will get only one prime time appearance this season. The Falcons are at the Carolina Panthers on a Thursday night Prime Video matchup in week ten.

The season begins with three road games in the Falcons’ first five matchups. That puts a premium on the week one home opener against a beatable New Orleans Saints team. The Saints have a new head coach and Jameis Winston as the projected starting quarterback. The days of the Saints being a serious contender are over.

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 infamous Super Bowl collapse to the Patriots is one of the biggest NFL debacles ever.

The Falcons were born during the peak of the AFL vs. NFL league war. The AFL was interested in placing a franchise in Atlanta. Thus, the NFL moved to cut them off at the pass. Also, there was a sunbelt strategy involved with the NFL. The New Orleans Saints were born the following year, creating an instant rivalry between the Southern cousins.

The Falcons have had their share of great players during their history. Deion Sanders, Claude Humphrey, Steve Borkowski, Jeff Van Note, Tommy Nobis, and Roddy White lit up the Atlanta marquee. Sanders and Humphrey are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Van Note had a remarkable career from 1969 through 1986.
