Play Minnesota Vikings -3.5.
Falcons failed to cover four of five last year as a road underdog. Atlanta had issue protecting Matt Ryan last season. Vikings have a high sack percentage at home. Falcons offensive line was revamp at Matt Ryan took 42 sacks last year. The unit looked shaky in the preseason. This was a Falcons defense that struggled on third down sitting 31st in the league and they were 28th in the red zone. Team lost their leading running back Tevin Coleman to free agency. Like the direction of the Minnesota Vikings. Kirk Cousins in his first season put up good numbers but the team was too much run heavy. They are looking to be more balanced with their talented at running back. Vikings defense was number one on third down and ranked third in the red zone. They have covered 15 of 23 as a favorite. Falcons have not been good to better on the road failing to cover 13 of 18. They did not pressure the quarterback well last season.
Play Minnesota -3.5.
