2018 Atlanta Falcons NFL Betting Odds and Schedule
The best NFL gambling sites aren’t as keen on the Atlanta Falcons as they were not too long ago. The truth is, though, that the Falcons would have to make history to even make it to the Super Bowl. They would become only the first team to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium. Personnel-wise, the Falcons are pretty much the same we have come to know and love/hate. But they were pretty much the same last season and yet not quite the same as in 2016. They weren’t bad, mind you, but they were, you know, not as good.
We could be generous and give them the benefit of the doubt. Chalk it up to the team and then-new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian adjusting to each other. Or maybe he just fell off the wagon. Because how can one go wrong with an offense that includes Matt Ryan, Tevin Coleman, Devonta Freeman, and Julio Jones? They make an OC’s job almost a sinecure. On the other hand, players left to their own devices can be as purposeless as a piece vibrating aimlessly on an Electric Football field.

The coldest blood runs through his veins, you know his name. Atlanta’s attack will once again emanate from the cold, dead hands of Matty Ice. At 33 years of age, the veteran remains highly esteemed and highly valued. First of all, not only did he land the top spot among NFC South QBs according to a ranking by NFL.com. But he also is among the 10-year veterans with the highest PFF grades. As well as among NFL analyst David Carr’s top 10 quarterbacks heading into 2018. Second, and most noteworthy, Ryan became the first $30 million per year quarterback and the highest paid player in league history. That’s what happens when you sign a $150 million five-year extension with the Falcons.
