Falcons vs. Cardinals Total Prediction

Atlanta Falcons vs. Arizona Cardinals, 10/11/19 Predictions & Odds

The massively disappointing Falcons head west this weekend to take on the lowly Cardinals at 4:05 p.m. ET. Given how neither team plays defense, is the over a safe play for bettors despite the number sitting in the low-50s?

Atlanta Falcons Fantasy Spin

Matt Ryan completed 32-of-46 passes for 330 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Falcons' 53-32, Week 5 loss to the Texans. Ryan added a rushing touchdown from the goal line. The Falcons continued to have little success running the ball and have had to rely on Ryan's arm all season. He was brilliant in the first half before fading in the third quarter. That was enough for the Texans to build a commanding lead, and the rest of Ryan's production largely came with the game decided. J.J. Watt regularly made life difficult for the entire Falcons' offensive line. Ryan will continue to rack up fantasy points inside of this pass-happy offense, but the Falcons are looking more and more like anybody's idea of a bad team. Still, next week's get-right spot against the Cardinals is appetizing for the entire offense.

Arizona Cardinals Fantasy Spin

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said David Johnson (back) will be monitored all week. Kingsbury would not rule out that Johnson could miss Sunday's matchup against the Falcons. Johnson's back reportedly "locked up" throughout the Cardinals' Week 5 win over the Bengals. Second-year RB Chase Edmonds would take Johnson's three-down role if the Cardinals' stud RB is ultimately unable to suit up. Whichever RB that draws the start will be set up exceptionally well against the Falcons' notoriously awful defense against pass-catching backs.

NFL Betting Trends


The over is 4-1 in the Falcons’ last five games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.


The under is 12-3 in the Cardinals’ last 15 games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.


Somehow, Dan Quinn has turned a talented defense into a horrendous unit, mostly because of his simplistic scheme (that opponents apparently know how to tear apart). How Quinn still has a job is beyond me but it’s perfect because we can cash the over on Sunday in Arizona. The Cardinals don’t play defense either, so it’s a perfect recipe for a shootout. The over is 11-3 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams and is 5-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams in Arizona.
