Falcons are Tanking ATS at Home

The Arizona Cardinals (4-5-1) were expected to compete for the NFC championship this year, but Bruce Arians’ crew have looked like anything but contenders through 10 games. Arizona hits the road in Week 12 for a date with the NFC South-leading Atlanta Falcons (6-4) in Georgia.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 14 of the Falcons' last 20 games after winning the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Cardinals are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog of 4.0 or more.
  • The Cardinals are 3-11 SU in their last 14 games in Week 12.

Sportsbooks opened the Falcons as 3-point home chalk with an OVER/UNDER of 51.

While some would say Atlanta has overachieved in 2016, that success hasn’t translated to the betting window at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Falcons are just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 appearances at home. They’ve also covered the spread just once in their past seven home tilts when tabbed as faves.

The good news for Atlanta backers is the Cards have also been pitiful when making the trip east. The Cardinals are 0-7 SU in their past seven in Atlanta. Arizona is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 as an underdog of three points or more.

The Falcons, who are coming off the bye, will be plenty rested after a 24-15 setback to Philadelphia in Week 10. Matt Ryan and company own the league’s third-best offense but possess the second-worst defense in the NFL. The Cardinals’ pass-happy attack isn’t what it used to be, but Larry Fitzgerald can still tear up opposing secondaries with ease. Expect Fitz to have a big day on Sunday.
