NFL Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Falcons are 6.5-point favorites versus the Rams, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 47.5 points. St. Louis won but failed to cover as a 4.5-point favorite versus Arizona, while Atlanta lost and failed to cover as a 3-point underdog against New Orleans in Week 1.

Line Movement: Atlanta opened as a 7-point favorite but the spread has been bet down to 6.5 at most online sports books, while the total has risen slightly to 47.5 after opening at 47.

NFL Free Pick: Take St. Louis. According to latest NFL trends, the Falcons are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games versus the NFC and 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall. The Rams are also 6-0 against the spread in their last six road games, 4-1 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall.

The Falcons had problems protecting quarterback Matt Ryan last week in their loss to the Saints and they'll have issues again today against a Rams' defense that sacked opposing quarterbacks a league-high 52 times last season. (St. Louis had four sacks a week ago versus Arizona.) With Roddy White limited by an ankle injury, look for the Falcons to try to control the clock with Steven Jackson and their running game and thus, the Rams should keep pace throughout.
