Betting On The Atlanta Falcons To Win The Super Bowl
The Atlanta Falcons are far removed from their 2017 Super Bowl trip where they fell short to the Tom Brady-led Patriots. Not many sports bettors would bet on the Falcons Super Bowl odds to win the 2021 season. Not to take anything away from the Falcons as they do have a well above average quarterback in Matt Ryan and a great receiving core led by Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, but other than that, there is not much to be excited about for the Falcons
The last time that the Atlanta Falcons were a relevant team was back when they made the playoffs for the 14th time in 2017 for their Super Bowl run that came up short. Being that they do have the pieces on offense to put a defense on its heels, some might think that they are just a few pieces away from getting back in the playoff picture. However, now with the defending Super Bowl Champions in the same division, they might find some trouble in the next few years when looking to add more division championships and conference championships to their resume.
When looking for the best Falcons Super Bowl odds, be sure to look around a few sportsbooks, as each one will display different odds. The Super Bowl betting sites also offer other futures odds for the Falcons, including odds to win the NFC and even the division.
