Falcons Vs. Redskins Odds: Atlanta favored by field goal on road

The Atlanta Falcons opened as 3-point favorites for their road game Sunday against the Washington Redskins and have hung mostly around that line, according to the latest lines at Odds Shark.

The only listing not at Falcons 3-under is currently 5 Dimes, which has the Falcons favored by 2.5. Bovada, Top Bet and Sportsbook.com all have Atlanta favored by a field goal. The opening moneyline had Atlanta at -150 and Washington at +136, and the over/under is set between 151 and 152 between the four sites.

Some might see the line as low for an undefeated team like Atlanta, but the Falcons will be seeing Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III for the first time. The Redskins have the league's No. 2 rushing offense, which might be just the formula to beat Atlanta and their 27th-ranked rushing defense. However, the Redskins' pass defense is one of the worst in the league at No. 30 and will have to tangle with Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez.

Sunday's game from FedEx Field is set for a 1 p.m. ET kickoff and will be televised by FOX.
