After a fast start, the Cardinals have come unraveled as of late, losing their last five games.  Atlanta lost their first game of the 2012 regular season last week versus New Orleans.

In the last five meetings of this series dating back to 2004, the home team has won all of them.  The last meeting in 2010 featured a 41-7 victory by Atlanta.

Arizona has gone 4-16 Straight Up in road games over the past three seasons and 7-13 Against The Spread.  Atlanta has only lost 4 home games over that period and has gone 11-8 ATS, though they are 0-2 ATS as a home favorite of between 7.5 and 10 points.

When playing against a team with a winning record, Arizona is a mere 3-11 Straight Up and 4-10 Against The Spread. 

When playing against a team with a losing record Atlanta is 17-1 Straight Up and 12-5 ATS while they are 7-1 ATS playing against a team with a losing record in the second half of the season.

The Falcons are 21-6 ATS in their last 27 games following a Straight Up loss and are 34-16-1 ATS in their last 51 games following a ATS loss.

We here at love Atlanta even at -9.5 but more so if you can get them as part of a teaser.
