Streaking Falcons Head To Hostile Territory

The Atlanta Falcons enter Week 6 riding a four-game winning streak both straight up and against the spread. Extending that to five won’t be easy for the Falcons, as they travel to CenturyLink Field to take on the Seattle Seahawks, who have won 25 of their past 30 games at home.

SHARK BITES
  • The Falcons are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against the Seahawks.
  • The Seahawks are 25-5 SU in their last 30 games at home.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Falcons' last 15 games.

Atlanta has the best offense in the NFL, as the team is averaging 457.4 yards and 35 points per game. Matt Ryan deserves real MVP consideration with the veteran quarterback accumulating 1740 yards and 12 touchdowns compared with just two picks through the first five weeks.

The Seahawks’ third-ranked defense will certainly have its hands full but has yet to allow a team to score more than 18 points this season. Seattle has only allowed one passing touchdown through four games this season – that came against Ryan Fitzpatrick, whom they picked off three times.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Seattle Seahawks were -7-point favorites at odds maker shops such as Bovada, while the NFL total was set at 46 for over under totals betting.
