Falcons Super Bowl 58 Odds: September 26, 2023
The Falcons Super Bowl odds are +6500, per DraftKings Sportsbook. Their odds have improved slightly from +7000 in May of 2023, signaling an increased probability to win the Super Bowl, even though that probability still remains quite low at 1.5%.
Odds for the Atlanta Falcons to win the Super Bowl this season are currently set at +6500 on DraftKings Sportsbook, signaling oddsmakers aren't particularly close to dubbing them an NFL juggernaut. Nor are they ready to name them an NFC contender, with odds to win the conference at +2800 — ranking 9th among NFC teams.
Where the Falcons do show some promise (and perhaps the odds are showing some value) is in their odds to make the playoffs (+130), and particularly their odds to win the NFC South (+240). Given the question marks throughout the division (Derek Carr's potential in NO, the Bucs lack of a franchise QB, and the Panthers' development years with Bryce Young), a division title could be the Falcons path of least resistance to making the 2023 NFL postseason.
Falcons Super Bowl Odds vs. NFC South
The Atlanta Falcons have the second-lowest Super Bowl odds in the NFC South at +6500, behind only the New Orleans Saints at +3500. Both the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their odds installed at +8000 ahead of the season — tied for 29th among NFL teams, ahead of just the Colts (+10000), Texans and Cardinals (both at +20000).
The NFC South is widely considered one of the least competitive divisions in the league, however. At least one of these teams has to make the postseason based on the current NFL playoff format, giving the phrase "Any Given Sunday" a true meaning. Considering the state of the division, oddsmakers have it right here — though I'd argue the gap between the Saints and Falcons is smaller than we might guess based on the Falcons slow (but steady) build through the offseason.

Falcons Schedule and Betting Lines
The Falcons schedule was released in May 2023, and DraftKings Sportsbook has assigned game lines Atlanta's upcoming matchups this season. Here's a look at where point spreads and moneylines currently stand for the Falcons:
Based on projected win totals, the Atlanta Falcons have the second-easiest strength of schedule for the 2023 NFL season, according to Sharp Football Analysis. Contributing to their easy schedule is the fact that the Falcons belong to the NFC South, which isn't considered an overly competitive division.
Looking at each game's odds, oddsmakers have identified the Lions, Jaguars, and Jets as their biggest projected losses of the season.
Key Contributors Toward Falcons Super Bowl Odds
For the Atlanta Falcons, 2023 is bound to be a key year in terms of development, from both the players and the coaching staff. Leading the pack, of course, will be Head coach Arthur Smith, who will look to improve upon the team's 7-10 record in his first two seasons.
Interestingly, despite the Falcons Super Bowl odds sitting at +6500 (implying a very low likelihood they'll win), Smith ranks relatively high in the ranks to win 2023 NFL Coach of the Year. His odds in the month of June are at +1600 — tied for the 5th-highest odds among all coaches.
Other key players for the Atlanta Falcons will include rookie RB Bijan Robinson. Undeniably, oddsmakers project his skillset out of Texas to immediately translate to the pros, now sitting as the odds-favorite to win 2023 Offensive Rookie of the Year at +250. They'll also have second-year RB Tyler Allgeier, who found plenty of success of his own, breaking the Falcons' franchise record for most rushing yards by a rookie (1,035) in the 2022 season.
Then, there's WR Drake London and TE Kyle Pitts. There isn't much to question here in terms of talent, arguably ranking in the Top 3 players in their respective positions. London showed plenty of flashes in 2022, as well, having totaled 866 receiving yards and four touchdowns in his rookie season despite a general lack of offensive production from the team. Where the real uncertainty lies is with QB Desmond Ridder, entering his second season after a quiet rookie campaign.
Generally speaking, the team has done a good job of building up the defense as well, between additions to the coaching staff and free-agent signings. Key additions for the defensive line include DE Calais Campbell and LB Bud Dupree, who combined for 9.5 sacks, 54 total tackles (10 for a loss), and 23 QB hits in the 2022 NFL season.
In the secondary, the Falcons signed S Jessie Bates III to a whopping 4-year, $64 million contract to make him the fourth-highest-paid player at the position. He'll play a crucial role in run support, having ranked top-seven among safeties in run defense grade in two of the last three seasons, per Pro Football Focus.

Falcons Super Bowl LVIII Outlook and Predictions
Though the Falcons have added some key playmakers to improve their playoff chances in the 2023 NFL season, their outlook to win Super Bowl LVIII is generally bleak. Arthur Smith has improved the trajectory of this team overall, but given the competition, they'll face at the top of the NFC, the Falcons chances to win the Super Bowl are quite low at 1.5%.
