Best Falcons Betting Lines 2023
The Falcons finished at 7-10 last season, which turned out to be franchise quarterback Matt Ryan‘s final year in Atlanta. He was traded to the Colts in March.
The team went out and acquired Marcus Mariota to be their starter for the upcoming season, and it would be surprising if he was anything but a bridge QB to third-round pick Desmond Ridder.
Unfortunately for the Falcons, they will be without their star wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who was suspended by the league for the entire season for sports gambling.
Atlanta did address the receiver position in the draft with Drake London, and he should see a lot of targets from Day 1 as the de-facto No. 1 on the outside with Ridley suspended. Along with Kyle Pitts, the Falcons have an exciting young core to build around on offense.
This team is in full rebuild mode and it could be an ugly season in Atlanta. If I were a fan, I’d be rooting for the first overall pick in next year’s draft.

Falcons Super Bowl 57 Odds
Falcons to Win Super Bowl (+25000)
The Falcons have the second-worst odds to win the Super Bowl, and rightfully so.
After moving on from Ryan, Atlanta had to address the quarterback position during the NFL Draft and did so by selecting Ridder out of Cincinnati. He won’t start right away, and the Falcons will rely on Mariota to lead them into this season.
There’s no denying this is a rebuilding year for Atlanta as they don’t have a true franchise QB, their star wideout is suspended, and they have a committee at the running back position.
Unless you are a diehard Falcons fan — and if you are, you probably know better — there is absolutely no reason to be wagering on the Falcons to win the Super Bowl this season.
Falcons NFC Championship Odds
Falcons to Win NFC Championship (+10000)
The Mariota experiment in Atlanta will be an interesting one to watch because this will be his second chance in the NFL to prove he’s a franchise quarterback.
The Falcons did draft Ridder, but if Mariota surprises everyone this season, he could become the long-term solution. After all, he is only just 28 years old.
The quarterback class in next year’s NFL Draft is expected to be a lot better than this year’s class, so I could see the Falcons in contention for the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s draft with an eye on drafting their next franchise QB.
This year, there is no value in betting on the Falcons to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
Falcons NFC South Winner Odds
Falcons to Win NFC South (+3000)
The Falcons have the worst odds to win the NFC South. I might’ve been tempted to place this bet before Tom Brady returned to the Bucs, but now there really isn’t any value.
If Brady had not returned, the starting QBs in this division could have been Blaine Gabbert, Baker Mayfield, Jameis Winston, and Mariota.
Among that group, I think Mariota would arguably be the second-best of the bunch, and the Falcons might’ve contended in the NFC South. With Brady back, the Bucs should win the division again with the Saints pushing them for the title.
Falcons Make Playoffs Odds
Falcons to Miss Playoffs (-1300)
The NFC is a little bit easier this season with the departure of Russell Wilson from the conference, but that still doesn’t mean the Falcons will make the playoffs.
This is a sure-thing bet for them to miss out on the postseason, but there’s no real value in making this bet. Yes, it’s quite possibly a lock, but at these odds, it is not worth it.
Falcons Win Total Bets 2023
Falcons: UNDER 4.5 Wins (+100)
This is my favorite Falcons futures bet for the upcoming season. After the schedule was released, I only saw four possible wins for Atlanta this season. They have two games against the Panthers, one on the road in Seattle, and a home game against the Bears.
Outside of those four games, the Falcons have an incredibly tough schedule this year. A top-three pick in next year’s draft is the most likely outcome for the Falcons.
Falcons Prop Bets 2023
Drake London UNDER 775.5 Receiving Yards (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook
I’m playing this Under because of Mariota, not London.
I love London’s talent and think he will have a great career in the NFL, but I don’t trust Mariota to successfully and consistently get him the football this season.
How to Bet Falcons Moneylines
NFL moneyline wagers are often the way to go when it comes to football betting. Here, you simply need to pick the winner of the game. If your team wins, you’ll win your bet. Simple as that.
These odds will change each week and with each matchup. The Falcons are likely to be underdogs in a majority of their matchups, and when that’s the case, you’ll see a plus symbol (+150) associated with their odds. In the event that they’re the favorite, you’ll see a minus symbol (-130) instead.

How to Bet Falcons Spreads
The most common way to bet on NFL games is spread betting. Here, you’ll get two evenly-priced options that are linked to a number associated with a minus or plus symbol. This line is what the oddsmakers have set as the team’s expected win (or loss) margin.
If the Falcons are 6.5-point underdogs against the Panthers, for example, they would need to lose by fewer than six points (or win the game outright) to cover the spread. But if the Panthers win by more than seven points, they would cover the spread.

How to Bet Falcons Over/Unders
Over/Unders have less to do with the outcome of the game and more with how exciting (or boring) it is. Here, we’re looking solely at the total number of points scored in the matchup.
Before the contest, sportsbooks will set a number that they project to be the expected scoring total. It’s up to you to decide whether the actual combined scoring total will come in above or below that mark.
Pay attention to the status of key players when betting on totals. Their presence — or lack thereof — can dramatically change how a game unfolds.
