After acquiring defensive back Ha-Ha Clinton Dix from the Green Bay Packers, the Washington Redskins have bolstered their defense. This is just in time for this Sunday’s Atlanta Falcons vs. Washington Redskins matchup, so there’s no question that Washington was looking to shut down Julio Jones this upcoming NFL online betting Sunday. That said, will the legal betting online odds favor Atlanta in Week 9? Or will they take the Redskins at home?

NFL Online Betting Odds:
The Falcons fly into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 3-4 record that pegs them as the 3rd best team in the NFC South. Considering the success they enjoyed in 2017, this record is not where the Falcons foresaw themselves sitting at heading into Week 9. Furthermore, with the 6-1 New Orleans Saints leading the division, it’s clear winning the division is become less and less of a possibility for Atlanta. The biggest problem for Atlanta this season is their defense, which is giving up a whopping 30.3 per game. On top of that, the offense doesn’t look as explosive as they used to, but with an average of 27.1 scored per game they’re still very much a competent unit. As for this weekend’s matchup, it’s interesting to see the odds giving Atlanta a fighting chance on the road. The Redskins have an elite defense and it will be up to Matt Ryan and the Falcons’ offense to pick up this road win.
Players to Watch: Matt Ryan (2,335 passing yards, 15 TD, 2 INT), Tevin Coleman (310 rushing yards, 2 TD, 1 F), and Julio Jones (812 receiving yards, 0 TD, 53 REC).
The Redskins enter this Week 9 pairing flashing a 5-2 record that pegs them as the best team in the NFC East. Before the season began, few NFL online betting fans would’ve believed that Washington would be leading the division heading into Week 9. This is because of the inconsistency they’ve shown in the past and the fact that they shared a division with the reigning Super Bowl champions. Nevertheless, Washington looks like a new team with Alex Smith leading the charge. Granted, the acquisition of veteran Adrian Peterson didn’t hurt either. Peterson has a big chip on his shoulder from the comments out of the media and has been on a mission to prove that he still has it. Peterson should have an impact on this weekend’s match.
Players to Watch: Alex Smith (1,561 passing yards, 8 TD, 2 INT), Adrian Peterson (587 rushing yards, 4 TD, 1 F), and Jordan Reed (306 receiving yards, 1 TD, 29 REC).
