Falcons Have Been an Awful Bet at Home

After two consecutive wins and covers on the road, the Atlanta Falcons will hope to keep the good times rolling when they return home to host their division rival, the Carolina Panthers. Betting on the Falcons at home has been a disaster, though, as they’ve only been able to cover the spread once in their last seven home games.

Shark Bites
  • The Falcons are 6-2 SU in their last eight home games vs the Panthers.
  • The Panthers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against the Falcons.
  • Cam Newton had a 107.2 QB rating in two games vs ATL last season.

It hasn’t been a strong start to the season for Carolina. They had a 14-game home winning streak snapped last week as 6-point favorites vs the Vikings, joining the Cardinals and Seahawks as NFC heavyweights who are off to slow starts. They opened as 3-point favorites for the game and it just so has it that three of their last four road games have been decided by three points of less.

Although they’ve been on a slide at home, the Falcons have been profitable as home underdogs, posting a 6-1 ATS record as home dogs going back to 2013. These teams faced off last December in Atlanta with the Falcons closing at +7. They went on to win the game 20-13, handing the Panthers their first loss of the season.
