Falcons Playoff Chances, Odds & Prediction for 2022 NFL Season

Falcons Playoff Chances, Odds & Prediction for 2022 NFL Season


The Atlanta Falcons have been trending downward ever since their Super Bowl LI loss to the New England Patriots. After missing the playoffs in each of the last four seasons, the organization has finally decided to embrace a rebuild, beginning with the 2022 NFL season.

Falcons fans already know that the postseason is a pipe dream with Marcus Mariota being a downgrade from Matt Ryan under center, as well as their lack of playmakers at most positions on both sides of the ball. Having said that, never say never as far as the NFL is concerned.

Let's break down Atlanta's playoff chances in 2022 using odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

Atlanta is available at +750 to make the postseason. That equates to an implied probability of 11.8%, suggesting that the Falcons have their work cut out for them in 2022.

Falcons Win Total Over/Under 2022

Atlanta has the worst odds to win the NFC outright at +10000.

Falcons 2022 Season Prediction

The Falcons were lucky to win seven games last year and it'd be a miracle for them to reach that total in 2022.

There's a good chance that Atlanta ends up being the worst team in football and its lack of game-changers will make it extremely difficult to win most of the upcoming matchups.

FanDuel Sportsbook is favoring the Falcons to miss the playoffs with four or fewer wins and I'm inclined to agree.
