Here are the current Broncos vs. Falcons odds. These odds are from FanDuel Sportsbook and most sportsbooks have the same spread and total points with only slight variation on the moneyline as of October 16, 2021 6:03 PM.

Let’s look at the line, spread, total, and odds for this Week 9 matchup between the Broncos and Falcons.

Team Spread Moneyline Total
Broncos +4 (-114) +172 O 50 (-110)
Falcons -4 (-106) -205 U 50 (-110)



The spread on the Broncos is +4 at FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Broncos are the underdog again this week. That’s becoming a theme for Denver this season, but it hasn’t seemed to slow them down. They have won three of their last four games despite being the underdog in every game.

Although Drew Lock has struggled for most of the season, he came up huge in the second half against the Chargers. He threw a walk-off touchdown to seal the victory this past Sunday.

This spread is the consensus among most sportsbooks, but this line could see some movement throughout the week.


The Broncos are underdogs on the moneyline at +170 for their Week 9 matchup with the Falcons. Meanwhile, Atlanta is priced at -215. 

The Broncos have some momentum going right now. Despite a brutal beatdown at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs two weeks ago, the Broncos have promising wins over the Jets, Patriots, and Chargers.

Granted, all of those teams are under .500, but so are the Falcons. Atlanta has collapsed in fourth quarters multiple times this year. And Denver showed that they are capable of making late comebacks this year.

There’s good value on the Broncos on the moneyline this week.


The Broncos vs. Falcons over/under is set at 50.

The big question this week surrounds the Broncos offense. Can they carry the momentum from the second half of Week 8 into Week 9? Drew Lock looked like a different quarterback and the offense could move the ball at will.

The two weeks before that, Lock looked completely out of sorts and failed to throw for a touchdown in either game.

Atlanta’s biggest issues this season have come on the defensive side of the ball. The Falcons are allowing 28.0 points per game this season.
