Atlanta comes into this game looking for a fresh start after firing Coach Quinn and General Manager Thomas Dimiroff this week. Defensive Coordinator Raheem Morris will take over the helm and look to get them back a track after a miserable 0-5 start to this 2020 season, but they’ll get going up against this Viking team in desperate need of a huge win themselves. Both teams show signs that they can compete with any team in the league, but they just can’t finish the job and get the W on the board. Matt Ryan’s number one wide receiver, Julio Jones was out last weekend in the 23-16 home loss to the Panthers and still listed as questionable is this game, due to that lingering hamstring issue he’s been facing.

The Falcons offense is scoring an average of 24.4 points per game. Atlanta is 0-4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games against Minnesota and the total has gone over in 6 of the Falcons last 9 games.

Minnesota comes into this game after suffering a tough 27-26 road loss to the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday, putting them now 1-4 overall and looking to get back on track and take care of business at home against these Falcons. As reported on Tuesday, running back Dalvin Cook has an adductor strain and is expected to not play in this game, which is a huge blow to their offensive production. The x-factor is this matchup will be how much running back Alexander Mattison can step up in Cooks absence. Mattison will face a Falcons Defense that has been shredded to the tune of 32.2 points per game by opposing running backs, tied for the second-highest mark in the league. Minnesota puts up an average of 26.4 points per game, but also is right their with the Falcons with a terrible defense that gives up an average of 30.4 points per game.

Minnesota is 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 games against an opponent in the NFC South and the total has gone under in 7 of the Vikings last 8 games against the Falcons.

The best opportunity to make money in this Atlanta Falcons vs Minnesota Vikings game is to buy that half a point and roll with the Vikings -3 at the -130 price.
