2013 NFL Win Totals Picks for the Atlanta Falcons
Many of the top rated sportsbooks have already released future odds and win totals for the 2013 season. The Atlanta Falcons over / under for wins heading into this season is posted at 10, depending on your sports betting outlet. The Falcons are also listed at (+800) to win Super Bowl XLVII and (+1600) to win the NFC Championship.
This Falcons team starts and ends with Matt Ryan under center. Julio Jones and Roddy White make up two of the deadliest wide receivers in the league and when veteran tight end Tony Gonzalez announced he would be coming back, the offense was intact for another run at a ring.
However the defense needed some help as they ranked 23rd in passing yards and 21st in rushing yards a year ago. The draft was a perfect place to reload as the Falcons picked six defenders in the eight picks that they had led by cornerbacks Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford.
In free agency the Falcons added Steven Jackson to help out of the backfield and Osi Umenyiora to pressure opposing signal callers. The Falcons still have question marks on defense but improved with a “win now” mentality.
Here is a look at the schedule for this season:
Sun, Sep 8 at New Orleans 1:00 PM
Sun, Sep 15 St. Louis 1:00 PM
Sun, Sep 22 at Miami 4:05 PM
Sun, Sep 29 New England 8:30 PM

Sun, Nov 17 at Tampa Bay 1:00 PM
Thu, Nov 21 New Orleans 8:25 PM
Sun, Dec 1 at Buffalo 4:05 PM
Sun, Dec 8 at Green Bay 8:30 PM
Sun, Dec 15 Washington 1:00 PM
Mon, Dec 23 at San Francisco 8:30 PM
Sun, Dec 29 Carolina 1:00 PM
Atlanta Falcons Outlook: The Falcons still have to be considered one of the best teams in the NFC and perhaps all of the NFL. The addition of Jackson on offense will give them a versatile back they have been looking for that will take pressure off Ryan. The defense is improved enough to get this team back into the playoffs as they easily win the NFC South.
