Atlanta Falcons Odds, Schedule, Bet Types, & Team Stats
It would appear that the 2021 NFL season is the beginning of a new era for the Atlanta Falcons. The franchise finished an NFC-worst 4-12 last year, twice enduring a five-game losing streak with a stretch of four wins in six games between those skids. The Falcons’ 2020 showing prompted major change within the organization, most notably the hire of former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith as the team’s next head coach and a separate deal that saw star wide receiver Julio Jones dealt with Tennessee following 10 seasons with the Falcons.
QB Matt Ryan is back for his 14th season after throwing for 4,581 passing yards — 4th most in the league — and 26 touchdowns against 11 interceptions and three fumbles lost in 2020. Some thought that new GM Terry Fontenot would use Atlanta’s No. 4 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to select Ryan’s successor. Instead, it was tight end Kyle Pitts who came off the board to pair with Calvin Ridley , giving Ryan two viable offensive threats to work with this season. A year ago, Ridley dominated in his third pro season, erupting for 1,374 yards and nine touchdowns on 90 catches as he established himself as Ryan’s top target. In his final college season, Pitts was a first-team All-American after hauling in 43 receptions for 770 yards and 12 touchdowns in eight games.
But wide receiver wasn’t the only offensive position Fontenot worked to improve in the offseason. Atlanta acquired numerous offensive linemen after Ryan was sacked 41 times last year and signed running back Mike Davis , who looked the part of an every-down back in Carolina with Christian McCaffery limited by injury in 2020. Davis averaged a healthy 3.9 yards per carrying and showed his versatility with 1,015 scrimmage yards and eight total touchdowns. The Falcons open the 2021 NFL season at the Philadelphia Eagles.

Falcons Team Rivals
Atlanta last reached the NFL playoffs in 2017. This year, a return to the postseason isn’t out of the question, but the Falcons have their work cut out for them. The New Orleans Saints have had a firm grip on the NFC South, winning four straight division titles. While the Saints are a bit of a wild card as they sort out life after Drew Brees , the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the clear division favorites and defending Super Bowl champions though it’s worth noting that they haven’t won the division since 2007. And then there are the Carolina Panthers, who finished a game ahead of Atlanta in the standings.
One thing to remember about the Falcons is that eight of their 12 losses were seven points or fewer. If Atlanta can determine how to win close games under its new coaching staff, the Falcons could be hanging around in the playoff hunt longer than some might expect. Find weekly Atlanta Falcons NFL odds above. You’ll also find how to bet on the Falcons as well as their complete 2021 schedule, betting trends, team statistics, performance against the spread (ATS), injury history, a full-depth chart, and more.
Betting on the Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta Falcons Point Spreads
Betting Falcons spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Falcons were excellent at covering in 2020. Atlanta had a +17.3 point margin of victory, and its losses were by an average margin of 7.3 points. Despite a 4-12 record overall, the Falcons went 7-9 against the spread, including 6-5 over their final 11 games.
Here’s an example of a Falcons spread:
- Falcons +4.5 (+110)
- Buccaneers -4.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Falcons are 4.5 point underdogs against the Buccaneers. If Tampa wins the game by five or more points, a $100 wager on the Bucs will come with a payout of $90.91. If Atlanta won the game outright or lost by four points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
Atlanta Falcons Over/Unders aka Falcons Totals
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number, and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
The Falcons play the Panthers, and the over/under is set at 51 points. A wager on the over would require Atlanta and Carolina to score 52 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 50 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 50 points scored.
In 2020, Atlanta allowed 32.3 points during its 0-5 start compared to an even 23 points the rest of the way. The under hit in 56.2% of Falcons games last season.
The moneyline is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is to pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Falcons +190
- Saints -220
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making New Orleans the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Falcons' odds would profit $190 for every $100 bet. And it's the opposite for favorites: Here, the Saints moneyline was set at -220, meaning every $220 bet nets $100.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Falcons moneyline and the over on a 44.5 point total. Atlanta would need to win, with the total final score being 45 points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds.

Atlanta Falcons Props
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Calvin Ridley 2021 receiving yards: 1450
Let’s break it down a bit. Ridley averaged 91.6 receiving yards per game in 2020 and finished tied for fifth overall in yards. Assume that average only goes up another yard in 2021 — Ridley had the fourth-highest average YPG last year. Ridley playing a full season up from his 15 games in 2020 would break that mark with a game to spare. Don’t forget the NFL added an extra regular-season game in 2021.
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on the end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Atlanta Falcons odds to win the NFC South
- Atlanta Falcons odds to win the NFC
- Atlanta Falcons odds to win the Super Bowl
- Matt Ryan’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year
- Calvin Ridley’s odds to lead the league in receiving
- Kyle Pitts’ odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year
If you think the Falcons will surprise under Arthur Smith and challenge the NFC South right away, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
