NFL Week 1 Atlanta Falcons News

The first week of the season is here and there is plenty of excitement for many teams. This includes the Atlanta Falcons.  The Falcons are eager to get started and put the ugly Super bowl loss behind them. If they are going to make a return to the biggest game of the season they cannot afford to stumble out of the gate. In order to prepare for the season here is a look at the week 1 Atlanta Falcons news.

Press Pause on the Preseason

If you watched the Falcons preseason, you may believe there is cause for concern. They did not win a game and they finished with an ugly 0-4 straight up preseason record. This is not a big deal. Preseason NFL records do not predict or indicate regular season success. The Falcons took the preseason to work on their execution and to stay healthy.

If you are looking where to bet on NFL week 1, we have you covered. 

Public Pounding The Birds

The Falcons start week 1 with a game on the road against the Chicago Bears. The Falcons are expected to be a much better team. That is why the Falcons are a touchdown favorite against the Bears. Although the Bears are playing at home, the public is not worried. As of the writing of this article, over 76% of the bets in this game are on the Falcons. This is the second most popular game to bet on of the week. The only team that is getting more bets is the Panthers who are getting 80% of the bets against the 49ers. The point spread on the Falcons game is moving and it is something that you have to see to believe.

Freeman Ready to Roll

If you are reading week 1 Atlanta Falcons news , you have to be concerned with injuries. One of the key players on the Falcons is running back Devonta Freeman. Freeman entered the league’s concussion protocol at the conclusion of training camp. The Falcons were very careful with Freeman and he is cleared and ready to fully return to practice. He will be at full strength and ready to go for the season opener against the Bears.

Super Bowl Hangover

Week 1 Atlanta Falcons news also includes wagering angles. Everyone will remember the collapse against the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.  The Falcons will surely remember the outcome. This is the kind of loss that can hang over a team for a very long time. Teams that lost in the Super Bowl are 5-12 straight up (SU) and 2-15 against the spread (ATS) in their Week 1 games the following season since 2000. This is a true handicapping angle to consider and it could mean that the Falcons could be in trouble in week one against the Chicago Bears.

Tempting To Take the Teaser

When it comes to betting on the NFL, one of the most popular bets is the NFL teaser.  This is the type of bet where you can add points to the point spread in favor of the team that you think will win (or cover) the game. In week one there are three teams that are getting plenty of action from a teaser standpoint. According to reports out of Las Vegas there are three teams that are getting heavy teaser betting action for week 1. Those three teams are the Patriots, Steelers and the Falcons. Over $60,000 has been bet on those teams so far and that total is expected to eclipse $100,000 by kickoff. This is something to consider before betting on the NFL in week one.

Stay Away From The Falcons in Week 1

The Falcons are much better than the Bears, but it is hard to beat any team in the NFL at home by more than a touchdown. It gets even uglier when you see that the public are making the Falcons a favorite bet in the first week. There are many other quality bets in the first week that you can make. Stay away from the Falcons and if anything take the Bears.
