The Atlanta Falcons opened as 7.5-point favorites over the Oakland Raiders in their Week 6 matchup. That line has since shifted some in Atlanta's direction, and the Falcons are now nine-point favorites at most sportsbooks.

At 5-0, the Falcons are off to the best start to a regular season in franchise history. Behind quarterback Matt Ryan's efforts, Atlanta has beaten the Chiefs, Broncos, Chargers, Panthers and Redskins. And as the lone NFC South team with a winning record, the Falcons have an early leg up for the division title.

The Raiders are 1-3 so far this season and coming off a 37-6 loss in Denver, though they got some extra time to prepare for Atlanta since they were off in Week 5. Oakland ranks 25th in the league in both total defense and total offense.

Sunday's game is set to begin at 1 p.m. ET, with coverage by CBS.
