One thing that will help them is their schedule and those that make an NFL bet are taking notice.
NFL betting odds on the Falcons should seem them favored a great deal of the time in 2010. They open the regular season in Pittsburgh and they are even favored in that game against the Steelers. Pittsburgh will open the season without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and that is why Atlanta is a small road favorite.
The Falcons begin the home portion of their schedule in Week 2 as they host the Arizona Cardinals. If the Falcons can get by the Steelers in Week 1 and win as expected in Week 2 they would head into Week 3 for a huge game at New Orleans. The Falcons have winnable games in Week 4 at home against San Francisco and at Cleveland in Week 5. The Week 6 game at Philadelphia won’t be easy nor with the Week 7 game at home against Cincinnati.
Atlanta gets their bye win Week 8 and they come out of it for what should be a win at home against Tampa bay in Week 9. The game against the Ravens on November 11th is a Thursday night game which should be a good one. Week 11 has the Falcons in St. Louis while they host the Packers in Week 12. The latter part of the schedule is really where Atlanta gets a break. They go to Tampa Bay in Week 13 and then travel to Carolina the following week. They go to Seattle in Week 15 and then host the Saints on Monday, December 27th in a game that might decide the division. Atlanta’s regular season finale is a favorable one as they host the Carolina Panthers in Week 17.
Everything sets up for Atlanta to have a very good season in 2010 and those making an NFL bet in 2010 have taken notice as the Falcons are dark horse contenders to win the Super Bowl. They have a schedule that is favorable and they have history on their side as every season in the NFC South it seems a different team wins the division title.
