Betting On The Atlanta Falcons To Win The Super Bowl
Here are the best Super Bowl odds for the Atlanta Falcons. The Atlanta Falcons are far removed from their 2017 Super Bowl trip where they fell short to the Tom Brady-led Patriots. The Falcons now find themselves as an ok team with low expectations that now have to face a new Tom Brady-led team in their own division. Not many sports bettors would wager on the Falcons to make it to the Super Bowl in the upcoming 2020-2021 season. Atlanta is coming off of a disappointing 7-9 season that was plagued by injuries and tough losses. Matt Ryan is no longer considered a top-five QB and the Atlanta offense is a middle-tier at best.
Many sports bettors like to know the Super Bowl odds for all teams in the upcoming season so that they can better their chances in the betting halls. Here you can find stats, odds, and history to help you make the best possible wager. The Atlanta Falcons are in the NFC South, so that means they will have to compete with the Saints, Buccaneers, and the Panthers.
What Are The Atlanta Falcons Odds To Win The Super Bowl?
Oddsmakers have the Atlanta Falcons at +3500 to win the 2021 Super Bowl. Atlanta is coming off of a 7-9 2019-2020 season that was riddled with injuries to key players. Julio Jones, the team's star WR, suffered from knee and shoulder injuries and RB Kenjon Barner suffered from shoulder and hip injuries. These injuries stifled there entire season which caused them to miss the playoffs. Coming into the 2019-2020 season, the Atlanta Falcons were still a middle of the pack favorite to win Super Bowl 55. During the offseason, the Falcons cut ties with RB Devonta Freeman and have also added Todd Gurley to the roster. Gurley is definitely an upgrade but similarly to Freeman, he is injury prone. It will take more than this addition to get the team to Super Bowl 55.

The Falcons (+2000) are not the favorite to win the NFC Championship. They failed to win their division in the 2019-2020 season. The Falcons are not expected to even make it to the NFC championship game in 2021 as they would have to go through teams who have better Super Bowl odds. In their own division, the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are both +1000 to win the Super Bowl compared to +3500 for the Falcons. They do not have a realistic chance to win the NFC championship in the 2020-2021 season but the odds are still favorable.
The Atlanta Falcons have a slim chance to win the NFC South unless a few shake-ups take place. The Falcons have a +700 odds to win the division. The Saints and the Bucs would have to take a surprising turn in production expectations, and most of the country will have their eyes on those two teams when it comes to the NFC South. It would take a lot for the Falcons to defy their odds including some help from the top teams and a healthy comeback. We will have to wait and see what happens in the now interesting NFC South this 2020-2021 season.
Bettors that enjoy watching the Falcons play, can also place bets on how they think the Falcons draft is going to play out. In order for you to bet in the Falcons draft, you would need to sign up with an online sports betting site, as they host the widest range of NFL Draft betting odds. These cover many different aspects of the Falcons draft and the NFL Draft as a whole.
The Atlanta Falcons finished their 2019 season at a below-average 7-9 record. Online sportsbooks are not expecting a comeback year for them just yet as the Falcons projected win total for the 2020 season is 7.5 wins. This is an exciting bet to follow being that their win total is right on point with their 2019. Only time will tell if they will meet their mark.
2020 Falcons Player Props
The 2020 Atlanta Falcons are going to need their key players to step up for them to have a successful season. In 2016, the Falcons had one of the most productive offenses in recent history. Now four years later the team is still looking to recreate the magic for that unit but now with different faces. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are two of the players still left from that 2016 offense and not surprisingly two of the best players on the team. The young receiver Calvin Ridley has joined as a Julio-like target for Ryan along with the newest addition RB Todd Gurley this season.
Since his MVP season, Matt Ryan has not significantly dropped in his stats but the numbers have not produced many wins for the team. He has become consistent in looking good on paper but that will not help the teams odd for the Super Bowl. His prop bets are set at 27.5 TDs and 4550.5 passing yards. Last year, he finished with stats just shy of both of those the bet lines.
As one of the best receivers in the league, many look for outstanding showings from Julio Jones. Sportsbooks have set his 2020 receiving touchdowns at 6.5 and currently, the over is the favorite( -165). Coming off his lowest receiving yards season since 2013 due to a toe injury, the line is set at 1349.5 yards this season. Jones has only finished the season with less than 1349.5 yards in the first three years of his nine-year career.
When Calvin Ridley took the field two years ago, he helped draw defenders away from Julio Jones. With a similar build, many expect Ridley to see Jones numbers eventually. He has yet to hit a 1000-yard season but was pretty close last year as he finished with 866 yards after missing three games because of injury. This year will be a bounce-back year for the wideout and the odds have his receiving yards set at 1025.5 yards.
Atlanta released starting running back Devonta Freeman so seems like a sure bet that new addition Todd Gurley will definitely be taking a majority of snaps this season. In the return to the state where he made his name in college, many do not know how well this new scene will play out for him. The odds for his 2020 rushing yard are set at 825.5 yards. The under of 9.5 touchdowns is favorited in his odds for rushing TDs coming off a season where he finished with 12 TDs.
