Falcons vs. Seahawks Prediction
Will the Falcons hang with the Seahawks this afternoon when the two teams clash at 4:25PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Seahawks are 7-point home favorites versus the Falcons while the over/under currently sits at 45.5 points. Atlanta opened as a 6-point underdog before the line was bet up, while the total opened at 45.5 and hasn't moved.
The Falcons are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games and are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. They're also 4-1 against the number in their last five road games versus a team with a winning home record and are 4-1 ATS in their last five games after covering the week prior.
The Seahawks are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games following a win and are 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games played in the sixth week of the season. They're also just 3-7-1 at the betting window in their last 11 games versus a team with a winning record and are 0-3-1 ATS in their last four home games versus a team with a winning road record.
OUR PREDICTION: People keep doubting the Falcons and they keep winning, especially as underdogs. They've been a dog for four straight weeks and won outright in every one of those contests. Kyle Shanahan is doing an excellent job exploiting new mismatches, whether it's with Julio Jones, Tevin Coleman or his tight ends. Plus, Matt Ryan is playing at a MVP level and despite this being yet another tough matchup, the Falcons should be able to hang within seven points of the Seahawks this afternoon.
