Falcons vs Texans 2019 NFL Week 5 Odds, Game Info & Prediction

NFL Betting News
Last week proved that it is still too early to be talking about teams and their chances of winning the Super Bowl this season. We saw previously unbeaten teams fall, while also seeing a couple of others get out of Week 4 by the skin of their teeth. Everyone has been hyping the Patriots, Cowboys, and Chiefs in the early going, but they were all close to losing last weekend. The Cowboys did go down to the Saints, while the other two got out unscathed by the very slimmest of margins.
While we need to apply the same principal when talking about struggling teams, it does appear to be a little clearer in that regard, as there are a few who are very much on the brink of seeing their playoff hopes dashed in the next week or two. The Atlanta Falcons are one of those teams, as they are off to a brutal start this season. They will try to tur the ship in the right direction this weekend when they head into Houston to face the Texans, but as the trends will show, it will be no easy task. The Texans are favored by 5 points at home, with the point total set at 48 ½.

Why bet on the Atlanta Falcons?
After 4 games this season, the Falcons find themselves sitting in the cellar in the NFC South, going 1-3 through the first month. The Falcons have now lost back to back games and are winless on the road in 2 attempts this year. There are a lot of reasons for concern for Atlanta, but it is their lack of offense that is perhaps the most alarming.
