Streaks & Records
The Falcons have been a horrible bet of late, failing to cover in five straight games. They're still 6-4 on the year, but they're 4-6 at the betting window and are just 2-3 against the number in their five home games this season. As for the Vikings, they've been a fantastic bet this season, going 7-3 straight up and 8-2 against the number. They're 4-1 ATS in their five home games this season.
The Falcons are a mess offensively because their offensive line continues to get quarterback Matt Ryan pounded and Ryan can't stop turning the ball over (three turnovers last week versus the Colts, including a pick-six). Devonta Freeman is also out with a concussion, so Atlanta will have issues moving the ball on the ground as well. The Falcons have played well defensively at times and the Vikings have been good on that side of the ball all season (3rd in the league in points allowed, seventh in passing yards and 10th in total yards surrendered per game). The total is set way too high.
