Odds for this weekend's matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts.

The Atlanta Falcons had a week to rest up and prepare for the tough task at hand this weekend: The winless, Peyton Manning-less Indianapolis Colts. Indianapolis continues to struggle on both sides of the ball with an offense that looks lost and a defense that hemorrhages points on an almost weekly basis.

It should come as no surprise that the Falcons are heavy favorites this week, with most lines giving Atlanta somewhere around eight points. While the Falcons have struggled at times, a bye week in the run-up to this weekend's game and a struggling opponent led to the line slanted heavily in their favor.

The over-under for Sunday's matchup is set at 44-1/2, which is a pretty normal number for an NFL game.
