Team Outlook and Scouting Report

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

If the Falcons play up to their potential, they should improve on last season. At 30/1, 3.2% odds-makers they are a longshot to win the Super Bowl. Their Super Bowl chances in simulations stand at 0.9 percent.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

Their 7 wins in 2018 did not meet expectations. It was -1.8 below what oddsmakers' money line projected. The season went much worse than expected. They met expectations on the road. It was at home where they struggled. They went 3-5 on the road and were expected to win 3.7. They won 4 at home and were expected to win 5.1. Anyone who backed the Falcons in all of their games on the money line would be down -238 units. Against the spread, they have lost -710 units risking 110 to win 100 (5-11 ATS). They are down against the spread at home and on the road. Below is a recap of all 16 regular games.

They are an above average scoring team based on points per game, which make sense given their strong yards per play rank. They are a below average scoring defense based on points per game and below average in yards per play allowed.
