Falcons Perfect SU and ATS This Season

The red-hot Atlanta Falcons look to remain perfect at the betting window when they welcome Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins to town in Week 5 NFL action Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Redskins are 5-12 ATS in their past 17 games.
  • Washington is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.
  • The UNDER is 5-2 in the Falcons past seven games.

Atlanta (4-0 SU, ATS) has seemingly put last year’s 6-10 record in the rear-view mirror and looks like a completely different team under new head coach Dan Quinn. The Falcons are scoring in bunches, averaging 34.25 points per game in the first month of the season.

With the quarterback drama surrounding embattled quarterback Robert Griffin III behind them, the Redskins have managed to keep their head above water, entering the tilt with a 2-2 SU record.

The ‘Skins held on for a 23-20 win over division rival Philadelphia in Week 4 thanks to another solid performance by Cousins (31-for-46, 290 yards, one touchdown). The Michigan State product has 1,005 yards passing to go along with four touchdowns and four interceptions as a starter this year.
