Atlanta Falcons odds and betting lines

 Unknown future for Michael Vick this season, the Atlanta Falcons betting lines and odds of winning decreasing.

Atlanta Falcons odds and betting lines The worst thing that could happen to the Atlanta Falcons this year is Michael Vick to be left on the sidelines for the season. He remains the major unknown when the sportsbooks prepare their betting lines and odds on winning the football competitions.

 You probably know all about the legal troubles surrounding the record-setting quarterback (1,039 rushing yards last NFL season), as we covered it quite extensively here at, and although he had to miss the training camp, his future remains unknown.

 The new coach Bobby Petrino, who came from Louisville, would have a hard time finding an equal  substitute for Vick if he has to. But Alge Crumpler, Warrick Dunn and Jerious Norwood will certainly be present, and with the addition of the ex-Raven Ovie Mughelli, the Falcons will still be looking to reach the Super Bowl.

 The Preseason didn't start as good for the Falcons, losing to the New York Jets 31-16. Joey Harrington went 6-for-9 for 88 yards, while Jason Snelling had ten carries for 48 yards for the Falcons. Following the opener, however, the Atlanta Falcons signed wide receiver Otis Amey and quarterback Casey Bramlet and waived quarterback Lang Campbell.

 The betting odds and lines on the Atlanta Falcons moved quite a bit in the past week, but now they seem settled. With Michael Vick still a big unknown for the team, the betting companies are quite cautions with the lines and odds they post. Still, there is plenty of room for some serious payouts with the odds posted by the online website Bookmaker (new window):

Atlanta Falcons odds to win the NFC: +2500

Atlanta Falcons odds to win the NFC West: +535

Odds on the Falcons to win the Super Bowl XLII: +4700
