Betting market: At 3-10, the Cardinals are tied for the worst team in the NFL. However, the Falcons are 3-10 against the spread, all alone for worst record in the eyes of bettors.

With them being such large favorites, 57% of bettors are fading them and taking the Cards plus the points. The public support the line has moved to -10 (see live betting data here). — Mark Gallant

Trend to know: Considering picking the Falcons in a survivor pool or as  a safe moneyline or survivor pick this week? In Matt Ryan’s career, he is 9-2 straight up when facing teams who are scoring fewer than 14 points per game. However, in his last two games in this spot he is 0-2 straight up. — Evan Abrams

Did you know? The Falcons have lost five straight and are favored by more than a touchdown. Atlanta is just the eighth team since 2003 to accomplish this feat. The previous seven teams went 5-2 SU and 3-4 ATS. — John Ewing

The home team has won the last nine meetings straight up between the Cardinals and Falcons dating back to 2001. The last time the road team won in this fixture was on September 30, 2001, when Chris Chandler and the Falcons beat Jake Plummer and the Cardinals in Arizona. — Evan Abrams

The Falcons are also the worst team in the NFL against the second-half spread this season at 3-10. — Evan Abrams
