|Last season the Broncos finished top of the AFC West
division on 8-8 to make it into the playoffs. There, they beat the
Steelers 29-23 before succumbing to the Patriots 45-10. The Falcons
ended last season second in the NFC South division on 10-6, before being
smashed 24-2 by the Giants in the playoffs. Although both teams made
many improvements in the off season, the Falcons may have the edge,
which explains why they are the -3 point favorites at most sportsbooks
ahead of Monday's clash.
Statistically, the Broncos' over is 4-0 in their last 4 games as an
underdog, 5-0 in their last five games played on turf, and 5-0 in their
last 5 games as a favorite on the road. The Falcons are 0-5 ATS against
a team with a winning record, their over is 4-0 in their last four games
with 250 passing yards in their most recent game, and are 4-0 ATS in
their last four games as the favorite.
