With the start of the 2016 NFL regular season quickly approaching, this killer online NFL betting guide will help you increase your chances of cashing in on a handful of Atlanta Falcons regular season games in 2016. Will Matt Ryan and company soar to new heights in Year 2 of the Dan Quinn era or will the NFC South title hopefuls fall flat and miss reaching the postseason for the fourth straight year? Let’s find out now.

Here’s a Closer Look at the Atlanta Falcons 2016 NFL Expert Picks

Week 1

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta (-3)

Analysis: I love Atlanta to cover the spread in Week 1 in their 2016 regular season and home opener against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that has a first-time head coach and a young roster than is short on both depth and experience. The Falcons won both regular season meetings in 2014 and will likely take this Week 1 matchup very seriously with it being a NFC South divisional clash.

The Pick: Atlanta 31 Tampa Bay 21

Week 4

Carolina Panthers (-4.5) at Atlanta

Analysis: The Falcons lost three of their final four home games a year ago, but they were also the only team in the league to defeat Carolina during the regular season. I like Atlanta to recapture the magic they had at home against the superior Panthers to get the win and outright ATS cover as a home dog.

The Pick: Atlanta 24 Carolina 21

Week 5

Atlanta at Denver Broncos (-6.5)

Analysis: The Falcons are 2-1 SU and ATS in their last three games against the Broncos and are my pick to cover the spread in this Week 5 affair. The Broncos are a discouraging 1-2- 2 ATS over its last five home games and will find life without both, Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler a lot more difficult that it ever was a year ago.

The Pick: Atlanta 21 Denver 20

Week 6

Atlanta at Seattle Seahawks (-10)

The Falcons are 0-6 SU in their last half-dozen games as an underdog of eight points or more, but Matt Ryan and company are also 4-2 ATS during the span and an identical 4-2 ATS over their last six road dates. The Falcons cover despite falling to Russell Wilson and company.

The Pick: Seattle 28 Atlanta 21

Week 7

San Diego Chargers at Atlanta (-3)

Analysis: The San Diego Chargers have a generous defense that ranked 21st in points allowed (24.9 ppg) a year ago, leading me to believe that Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are going to have a field day in this Week 7 inter-conference matchup!

The Pick: Atlanta 31 San Diego 27
