The Atlanta Falcons were one of the best teams in the NFL just a season ago and they have only gotten better throughout the offseason. The Falcons once again hope to be among the elite teams in the NFC, so you can imagine they have high hopes when it comes to their regular season win record.
Plenty of people place wagers on the win totals for teams heading in to the year and the fine folks of Bovada.lv have recently updated their odds following some recent moves and news.
Kevin Bradley, Sports Book Manager of Bovada.lv says:
“NFL Season Win Totals is one of our most popular bets here at Bovada, and as a result, we have had some significant movement based on the amount of money we are taking on certain teams. Arizona, with our second lowest total of 5.5 wins has seen 90% of the action on the over which is the same case for New Orleans, who are only taking over money on their total of 9. The Patriots total, due to the loss of Hernandez and the status of Gronkowski, has dropped from 11.5 to 11 and in turn, the Dolphins who are also getting bet pretty heavily have moved from 7.5 to 8.”
So how does Vegas see the Falcons stacking up in the NFL this season? Here are the over/under odds for their 2013 win total:
Over: 10 (+110)
Under: 10 (-140)
The Falcons came away from last season with a 13-3, so reaching ten wins should be very reachable. Their division is also better as a whole, but Matt Ryan should be able to keep his team in the 11 or 12 win range and earn the fans that bet the over some money.
How many games do you think the Falcons will rack up in 2013? Sound off in the comments section and share your predictions.
