It's not a difficult choice this week as the Atlanta Falcons are taking on the winless, hapless Indianapolis Colts in Week 9

There's not a whole lot of mystery going into the Week 9 game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have yet to win a game, and the Falcons, though they have struggled, are one of the better teams in the NFL, beating the likes of the Detroit Lions already this season.

Perhaps the Colts will win a game at some point this season — they've been close a few times — but there's simple principle in sports betting that applies to a game like this: never bet against a streak. Especially a streak that look like it's definitely going to continue.

The experts are unanimous across all the different platforms, and they're picking the Falcons. The eight football bros at ESPN are all picking the Dirty Birds, as are the guys at Yahoo! and at CBS.
