While the Atlanta Falcons put the finishing touches on their 2020 NFL Draft board, Vegas has put out the Super Bowl odds and win/loss over/under for all 32 NFL teams.
After back to back losing seasons for the Atlanta Falcons, it should come as no surprise that the Falcons are nowhere near a betting favorite to get to the playoffs, let alone to the Super Bowl. However, if you believe that this team is going to make a surprise run like they did in 2016, then the odds may be a little enticing.
According to Caesar’s Sportsbook, the Falcons are currently a 55/1 odd to make it the big game in February. This means that should you plop down $100 on the Falcons today and they win the Super Bowl in 10 months, you would recoup your initial bet plus an additional $5500 for your time and belief.
If you are one of the few that currently have an extra $100 laying around that may not be a bad wager to make.
As we know in the NFL, most teams do not make the playoffs in back to back years. With the addition of tight end Hayden Hurst and running back Todd Gurley, the Falcons are hoping to return to the high scoring offense they had just a couple years ago.
With the signing of defensive end Dante Fowler, the Atlanta Falcons are hoping to give their defensive line the shot in the arm that it has needed for a long time and are betting themselves that Fowler will improve on his 2019 season and not regress.
Additionally, Caesar’s Sportsbook believes that the Falcons will finish third in NFC South, behind the Saints and Bucs. This should come as no surprise with Drew Brees returning for his 20th seasons and Tom Brady signing with Tampa Bay shortly after the start of the free-agent period a month ago.
Falcons fully expect this team to compete and win the NFC South this year and given their track record during Presidential election years, the Falcons should be the betting favorite, especially if they are able to land the right guys in this week’s NFL draft.
