Betting On The Atlanta Falcons To Win The Super Bowl
The Atlanta Falcons are far removed fr om their 2017 Super Bowl trip wh ere 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 fr om the Falcons as they do have a well above average quarterback in Matt Ryan and a great receiving core led by Calvin Ridley and Kyle Pitts, but other than that, there is not much to be excited about for the Falcons

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.
