This game will be of the utmost importance for these two average or worse teams. Both teams sit 1-2 at the start of this game, and whichever team loses, any hope of making the playoffs will be severely tested. Yes, it’s the start of the season for such talks, but a 1-3 record is a tough thing to overcome. This difficulty was fully expected for the Falcons, but there was hope for the football team. Will they manage to clinch a victory and keep their season on track with regard to their expectations?
This game will be played at 1 p.m. EST on Sunday, October 3, 2021 at the Mercedes Benz Stadium.
Why bet on the football team?
✅ The Falcons, despite beating the Giants last week, have been one of the worst teams in the league this season. Their passing attack once kept them competitive, but that is no longer the case. The combination of Arthur Smith’s offense and Matt Ryan’s current skills undermined any offensive explosiveness. Deep balls are almost nonexistent, and even when they are, there has been very little success found. The precise area where the football team’s defense has had its struggles is the area the Falcons are so anemic in. In this game, like the others to date, will provide a lack of results for the Falcon offensive.
The football team’s offense has had mixed results so far. They moved the ball well in Week 2 against the Giants, and the score followed. The Giants are a common opponent for these teams at the start of the season. While both teams had victories, the football team played a healthier version of the Giants offense and was the more effective offense against them. The defense of the Falcons as a whole is one of the most exploitable in the league. They are allowing over 31 points per game so far this season and have been a sieve to the pass. They allowed five touchdowns on wide receivers and three more on tight ends. This is great news for Terry McLaurin and Logan Thomas.
✅ As we saw in Weeks 1 and 2, any team establishing something that looks like a fast scoring pace is proving far too much for the Falcons to handle. Their average loss margin in these games was 24.5 points. They are unable and seemingly unwilling to stretch the pitch, and will not be able to hit the football team where they are most exploitable. Any deficit for the Falcons can seem overwhelming. Look for the football team to get back on track on both sides of the ball in Atlanta.
