NFL Betting Preview: Atlanta Falcons vs. Washington Commanders
October 15, 2023
The Washington Commanders will travel to Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday afternoon to face off against the Atlanta Falcons at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium at 1:00 PM ET with the game airing on CBS in week 6 of the NFL season.
Washington enters this game with a record of 2-3 following a 20-40 loss at home against the Chicago Bears while failing to cover the 6-point spread as a home favorite in week 5 of the NFL season. The Commanders scored 20 points while compiling a total of 388 yards offensively which included 388 passing yards and 29 rushing yards while allowing 40 points and 451 total yards defensively which included 282 passing yards and 178 rushing yards. Sam Howell led the team in passing, completing 37 of 51 attempts for 388 yards with two touchdowns and an interception while also leading the team in rushing with 19 yards. Logan Thomas led the team in receiving, catching nine of 11 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown.
The Atlanta Falcons enter this game with a record of 3-2 following a 21-19 win at home against the Houston Texans while failing to cover the 2.5-point spread as a home favorite in week 5 of the NFL season. Atlanta scored 21 points while compiling a total of 447 yards offensively which included 351 passing yards and 96 rushing yards while allowing 19 points and 313 total yards defensively which included 249 passing yards and 64 rushing yards. Dennis Ridder led the team in passing, completing 28 of 37 attempts for 329 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 10 yards and a touchdown. Bijan Robinson led the team in rushing with 14 carries for 46 yards while adding two receptions for 12 yards and a touchdown. Kyle Pitts led the team in receiving, catching seven of 11 targets for 87 yards.
BookMaker has the Atlanta Falcons listed as 2.5-point favorites at home against the Washington Commanders on Sunday afternoon in week 6 of the NFL season. Atlanta has won six of the last nine while Washington has won two of the last three games in the series while going 5-4 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the previous three meetings. Washington is 2-3 ATS overall, 2-0 ATS on the road, and 2-1 ATS as an underdog this season while the Atlanta Falcons are 1-4 ATS overall, 1-2 ATS at home, and 1-2 ATS as a favorite on the year.
Neither team has been an offensive juggernaut this season as they both are below average in terms of points per game with Atlanta averaging the 6
fewest points per game with an average of 16.6 points per game while Washington is averaging 21.8 points per game. I look for this to be one of the lowest-scoring games in the NFL in week 6 which is why I will be taking the under 43 total points when the Washington Commanders travel to face the Atlanta Falcons in week 6 of the NFL season on Sunday afternoon.
