According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Falcons are 5.5-point home favorites versus the Texans while the over/under total currently sits at 46.5 points. Atlanta enters play with a perfect 3-0 record and is 3-0 against the spread, while Houston is 1-2 straight up and 1-2 ATS.

The Falcons already had one of the most feared combos in football thanks to quarterback Matt Ryan and receiver Julio Jones, but Devonta Freeman breathed life into a rushing attack that has been dormant since 2011 last week. Freeman rushed for 141 yards and three touchdowns as the Falcons erased several deficits to beat the Cowboys, 39-28.

The Texans have the pieces on defense to keep this one close but their offense has been directionless without running back Arian Foster. There’s some optimism that Foster will return this week but how effect will he be in his first action back since December 28 of last year? Quarterback Ryan Mallett is unlikely to match the offense that Ryan and Jones generate, so look for the Falcons to pull off the cover.
