Falcons Have Been Money on The Road For Bettors

Atlanta has been one of the best road bets in the NFL this season, as the Falcons have gone 6-1 ATS away from the Georgia Dome. With an average scoring margin of plus-6.4 points per game on the road this season, Atlanta travels to Bank of America Stadium to take on the Carolina Panthers as a favorite on Saturday.

SHARK BITES
  • Julio Jones is “hopeful” that he will make his return to the Falcons lineup.
  • The UNDER is 6-1 in the past 7 games between the Falcons and Panthers.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of the Falcons' last 9 games.

Atlanta’s offense has decimated some poor competition the past two outings, as the Falcons scored a combined 83 points against the Rams and 49ers. Those two games saw Matt Ryan continue his MVP-worthy campaign with a 69.1 completion percentage, 523 passing yards and five touchdowns with no interceptions.

After an embarrassing performance against the Seahawks, the Panthers have won two straight while holding opponents to 15.5 points per game. The defense has carried Carolina during its two-game winning streak, generating eight turnovers in that span.
