Atlanta Falcons are Week 3 Underdogs

The Indianapolis Colts are 1.5 point favorites against the Atlanta Falcons


Considering the circumstances that the Indianapolis Colts have faced over the last month, it comes to my surprise that they are 1.5 point favorites. Both teams stand at 1-1 through two weeks, but the Colts will be missing some key players. Although it is not a must win, this is certainly a winnable game for the “underdog” Atlanta Falcons.

By the numbers, this is actually a game that I like to see. The Colts have players ailing from injury and are still establishing a foundation around Jacoby Brissett. They have one of the better offensive lines in the NFL, but running back Marlon Mack is battling a calf injury. Colts linebacker Darius Leonard has yet to clear concussion protocol, which means he will likely be out on Sunday.

This is a game that is winnable for Atlanta. There are tougher games down the road that could cost the Falcons a couple of wins, so it would be nice to see them take this one. But, forget what I’m saying the professionals say otherwise.

As a betting man, it would be difficult for me to not take the Falcons as the underdogs.
