Green Bay Packers vs Atlanta Falcons Odds

  • Opening point spread: Packers -1
  • Opening moneyline: Packers -110/Falcons -110
  • Opening total: Over/Under 40 points scored
  • Time: 1 p.m. ET Sunday (FOX)

UPDATE 10:15 A.M. ET SUNDAY: As noted Friday (see below), this line jumped the fence this week. And today alone at BetMGM, it's up another 1.5 points in the Falcons' favor, to Atlanta -3. Current betting splits aren't available.

After opening at 41.5, the total has been stuck at 40 since Thursday. But tickets and money are in the 2.5/1 range on the Over.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET FRIDAY: The Packers moved from -1 to -1.5 Monday at BetMGM. But this line jumped the fence Thursday to Falcons -1.5, where it sits now. That said, Green Bay is netting 65% of early spread bets/57% of early spread cash.

The total dipped from 41.5 to 40.5 Monday, then to 40 Thursday. The Over is landing 62% of bets, but money is almost dead even thus far.

UPDATE 11 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Green Bay (1-0 SU and ATS) had no Week 1 issues, catching 1.5 points on the road and rolling over Chicago 38-20. Atlanta (1-0 SU and ATS), a 3.5-point home chalk, topped Carolina 24-10.

The Packers-Falcons line is stable tonight, but the total is on the move. The SuperBook opened at 40 and quickly advanced to 41 and 41.5.

Packers vs. Falcons Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

Both teams won comfortably by 14+ in Week 1 with young quarterbacks. These teams mirrored each other last season. Each team struggled defensively, especially against the run. Both ranked just outside the top-10 offenses by DVOA, each top five running the ball.

Expect a fast clock and lots of running the football between two slow-pace squads.Green Bay looks like it will be without Aaron Jones and Christian Watson, leaving the offense short two of its most explosive options and extremely young outside of the offensive line.

The big mismatch here is a powerful Falcons rushing attack that ranked No. 3 in DVOA last year, up against a Packers run defense that ranked 31st. Atlanta addressed its defense in a major way this offseason and already saw it pay dividends in Week 1, but Green Bay did little to upgrade its run defense. Now, Atlanta adds Rookie of the Year favorite Bijan Robinson to Tyler Allgeier and could run wild in a home win.

Pick: Falcons -1.5 (-110)
