The Denver Broncos are 7-2 straight up and 5-4 against the spread in their last nine games against the Atlanta Falcons. The Broncos will try to pick up another win over the Falcons and remain undefeated on the season this Sunday in Denver.

Denver is a 6-point home favorite on Sunday at sportsbooks monitored by Sunday's matchup will pit one of the NFL's best defenses in the Broncos against the league's top offense in Atlanta.

The Falcons have averaged a staggering 478.8 yards and 38 points per game en route to a 3-1 SU and ATS start, while the Broncos have allowed only 16 points per game and are off to a 4-0 SU and ATS start to the 2016 season.
