The Atlanta Falcons are being picked overwhelmingly by the experts to defeat the Carolina Panthers.

The Atlanta Falcons are one of the best teams in the NFL and they are looking to start 4-0 as they host the Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon. As of right now, the Falcons are a six-point favorite and are being picked by most every expert to win on Sunday.

Over at ESPN, their 11 experts are taking the Falcons, and their AccuScore computer simulation has the Falcons winning 74 percent of the time and by an average score of 31.6 to 23.1. Yahoo's Jason King is also picking the Falcons, and so far on the year he is 28-22 for picking winners.

CBS has a mixed reaction of who will win this game, with five picking the Falcons and three others going with the underdog. The three that are going against the grain are Mike Freeman, Jason La Canfora and Will Brinson. Perhaps the three in the minority are still believing that Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will stop struggling and get back to the level he played at as a rookie.
