Atlanta Falcons 2012 Season Win Total Outlook & Projection:
2012 Atlanta Falcons Las Vegas Season Win Total Line;
As of this writing, oddsmakers have the 2012 Atlanta Falcons regular season
NFL win total line
set at 9 wins...
This number represents a reduction of 1 win from the 'Falcs prior season mark of (10-6)...
It's also a reduction of 1 win from Atlanta's prior year regular season win total line of 10.
Factors working against the 9 win season win total line are;
Michael Turner and Tony Gonzalez being another year older, division rival Carolina
posing an increasing threat, and the loss of Curtis Lofton to New Orelans.
On the plus side, the Saints suffered losses due to the bounty scandal,
Tampa Bay appears weak on paper, the Falcons added CB Asante Samuel,
and the Falcons schedule is not so difficult...
Although looks can be deceiving.
In 2012 the Falcons will suit up just 5 times versus teams that made the playoffs
a year ago;
That's 1 less game against prior season playoff teams compared to a year ago.
However, looks can be deceiving. While the Falcons' strength of schedule appears on the light side
upon first glance, thanks to the combined winning percentage of Atlanta's
opponents chiming in at just .488 in the prior season,
consider Philadelphia, Dallas, and San Diego are teams most would agree underperformed last year...
Atlanta will face these squads traveling to San Diego in week 3, traveling to Philadelphia in week 8,
and hosting Dallas in week 9... As a result, Atlanta's schedule is likely to be tougher in reality than the
However, the Falcons also draw plenty easy competition on paper including five contests
versus teams with a
season win total line
of 7 wins or less including; @Washington in week 5,
Oakland in week 6, Arizona in week 11, @Tampa Bay in week 12, and home to Tampa Bay in week 17.
Middle of the road compeition includes two tilts with the Panthers, and a trip to Kansas City in week 1.
Update: In 2012 we project the Falcons to go (10-6), topping the Vegas win total line of 9,
and eking out the division title.
Of course injuries could also wreak havoc in the other direction.
