Falcons vs. Broncos Prediction
Will the Broncos remain unbeaten both straight up and against the spread when they host the Falcons at 4:05PM ET today?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Broncos are 4.5-point home favorites versus the Falcons while the over/under currently sits at 46.5 points. While the side hasn't moved in this matchup, the total has gone from 47 points down to 46.5.
ATLANTA: The Falcons are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games overall and have covered in three straight. They're also 6-2 against the number in their last eight games following an ATS win but are just 3-7 at the betting window in their last 10 games in October. They're also 2-9 against the spread in their last 11 games coming off a straight up win of more than 14 points.
DENVER: The Broncos are a near-perfect 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five home games, are 6-0-1 against the number in their last seven games overall, and are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games versus a team with a winning record. They're 7-2 at the betting window in their last nine games in October as well.
OUR PREDICTION: The Falcons have scored 35 points, 45 points and 48 points over their last three games but they'll have trouble reaching the 20s today in Denver. The Broncos are too good at all three levels defensively and should contain the Falcons throughout. Atlanta is also missing all three of its starting linebackers, plus a backup at the linebacker position. That should open up plenty of creases for C.J. Anderson, who should take pressure off a banged up Trevor Siemian.
