In the NFC South, the Falcons now tie the lead. However, live betting services can see that the team is just 4-6, both SU and ATS. On Sunday, they’ll do their best to make it to three consecutive wins when they take on the Browns (6-4) at home.
The betting line opened with the Falcons as the favorites by three points. The game’s total opened at 47 early in the week.
Cleveland were able to win three straight games before they lost last week 23-7 at home to the Texans. Houston outplayed the Browns, and that’s the type of game that a team like Cleveland will occasionally make.
A week before that, the Browns were able to take out the Bengals and outgain the team 368-165 in a divisional win of 24-3 on the road. When it comes to total offense, Cleveland have a ranking of 14th place in the NFL, and in total defense they’re only at 22nd place. However, it seriously helped their cause when they had a turnover margin of over eight. And WR Josh Gordon is set to return this week after being suspended.
This season, Atlanta were able to win consecutive games for the first time after they beat Carolina 19-17 last week in Charlotte. They would also have three wins in a row if they didn’t end up losing in London to the Lions. Following three quarters of action, Atlanta were able to lead the Panthers 16-3, letting the team take a lead of 17-16. Then they were able to drive 54 yards for the field goal that won the meeting.
So after they were able to go between wins for six weeks, the Falcons, who are 4-6, have a tie in the NFC South for first place alongside the Saints. When it comes to total offense, the Falcons have 10th place, and even though this season the defense was having problems, it put its resilience on display and held the last three teams that they faced to 19 PPG.
The Falcons’ fans were disappointed when they saw that their team ended up being outgained in each one of their last five meetings and suffered injuries, particularly with their offense. In the meantime, the Browns can properly get back on track. Therefore, many fans and live betting services believe that Cleveland should be the ones to go for in this upcoming meeting.
