Straight Up (Sebastian Morera)
The Packers are flying high and will win this game, as long as they don’t get in their own way. Atlanta is winless this season and has blown every opportunity they’ve had to win a game this season. So as long as Green Bay doesn’t take this Falcons team lightly, they’ll come out on top in this Monday Night Football contest.
Right now the Packers rank No. 1 in scoring in the NFL. On the other hand, the Falcons are giving up more points than any other team in the league. This would suggest Green Bay is set to drop another 40-points this upcoming Monday night.
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Atlanta Falcons are the kings of collapse, and should update their logo to show circling carrion birds. Vultures fly over Falcons games before the game is even over, because they know death is imminent. However, we’re talking about the point spread here, and Matt Ryan clearly can sling the rock well enough to keep it close with the Green Bay Packers on Monday night.
Ryan has the third-most passing yards in the NFL thus far, posting 961 yards to go with seven TDs and two interceptions. Green Bay’s defense gives up the twelfth-most PPG, yielding an average of 28.3 points per contest. Atlanta is averaging 30 PPG in 2020, while allowing an average of 36 PPG to opponents.
The data demonstrates a six-point differential, and the point spread for the Falcons’ MNF showdown with the Pack is seven. I’m feeling really good about the Packers winning by six points here. The Falcons cover +7, and spiral further into the depths of the NFC South at 0-4.

Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Well, the Atlanta Falcons offense has been really good (30 points per game, sixth best in the league), but their defense is the worst in the league by allowing 36 points per game.
If healthy, Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley can be the best WR’s combo in the league, and watch out for RB Jordan Hill, he can be the co-starter pretty soon.
The Green Bay Packers average 40.7 points per game (best in the league). In Week 3 they scored 37 points even without star WR Davante Adams.
The total has gone over in 5 of Green Bay’s last 5 games against Atlanta. Expect some fireworks and go over.
