The Atlanta Falcons (0-5) face the Minnesota Vikings (1-4) Sunday of Week 6 in the NFL at U.S. Bank Stadium in their first game since the firing of head coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff. Below, we take a look at the Week 6 betting odds and lines at BetMGM Sportsbook.
Falcons owner Arthur Blank cleaned house after Atlanta was dropped to 0-5 with a 23-16 home loss to the NFC South rival Carolina Panthers Sunday. The Falcons are averaging just 24.4 points per game on offense with their 32.2 PPG allowed ranking 30th in the NFL. The Dirty Birds have covered the spread just once in their five losses. Former defensive coordinator Raheem Morris assumes the head coaching role on an interim basis.
The Vikings suffered another tough loss in Week 5, losing 27-26 to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football. Minnesota played a near-perfect game as a 6.5-point road underdog until Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and WR DK Metcalf connected for a 6-yard touchdown with just 15 seconds left on the clock. The Vikes improved to 3-2 against the spread.
