The Falcons are a tough team to figure out. They have brilliant moments like the win against the rival Saints. Then they follow that up with a big dud against Dallas. Quietly Matt Ryan is having an incredible season and you know that he wants to win this game. It doesn’t help with Calvin Ridley being out of the lineup.
The defense is also vastly improved. They have yet to allow a 300-yard passer this season. That streak will stay in fact, although Pats rookie QB Mac Jones is starting to make a name for himself.
The Mac Attack
The Patriots are once again considered a contender and it is due to the instant success of quarterback Mac Jones. During the win against the Brown, Jones set career highs in completion percentage, passing touchdowns, and passer rating. The Patriots are a meager 5-11-1 ATS after a straight-up win. The offense is balanced with a strong running attack and an efficient passing game. However, this team will be tested as a road favorite in a short week.
Patriots vs Falcons Predictions
The Patriots are 6.5 point favorites in this game and the public is pounding the Pats at the betting window. Over 82 percent of the bets are on Bill Belichick to win and cover this week. But don’t count out the Falcons. They are at home and the Patriots will have to travel on a short week, something that is difficult for any team. The Falcons respond well after a bad performance. The birds are 26-12 ATS after scoring less than 15 points and 20-7-1 ATS after gaining less than 250 total yards.
The Dirty Birds get their revenge on Thursday night and beat the Patriots.
