WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Spread) – The Falcons will put their undefeated record on the line today when they visit the Redskins at 1:00PM ET. Will Atlanta cover?

NFL Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Falcons are 3-point favorites over the Redskins, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 51 points. Atlanta enters the game with a 4-0 record and is 2-0 on the road, while Washington is 2-2 overall and 0-1 at home.

Line Movement: The side for this game has stayed steady all week. The Falcons opened as a 3-point favorite and that’s where the line currently sits, while the total has gone from 50.5 to 51.

NFL FREE PICK: Take Atlanta. Seeing as how they nearly lost as a 7-point underdog last week at home versus Carolina, maybe the Falcons are due for their first loss of the 2012 season. That said, Mike Smith admitted at halftime of that game that his players weren’t very focused to play a well-rested Panthers team that was looking to erase a poor performance against the Giants the week before. Thus far Atlanta has played very well on the road this year, crushing both Kansas City and San Diego in previous weeks. Look for Mike Nolan to put a sound defensive game plan together to stop Robert Griffin III and that Washington offense, and for Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez to take advantage of a shaky Redskins’ secondary. According to latest NFL trends, the Falcons are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games in Week 5 and 21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 games following an ATS loss. The Redskins are also 1-4 ATS in their last five games in October.
