Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

The latest betting line has them at 8.5 wins and our latest projection says they will win 8, maybe 7.

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

The Falcons are winning more in simulations than they did last season which indicates that they should improve next 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 0.7 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.
