The Atlanta Falcons (9-1) take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-4) Sunday at 1:00 ET. NFL odds are at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
Atlanta overcame a slew of turnovers to hold on for a four point victory at home against the Cardinals after dropping their first game two weeks ago to the Saints. For the season, they sit at 9-1 SU and 6-4 ATS. Bill Parcells has always said that you are what your record says you are, but the Falcons don’t look like a 9-1 team. They have had tight home games against the Panthers, Raiders, Cowboys, and Cardinals, and really haven’t blown away anyone this year. That being said, they keep on winning.
The Buccaneers have been a pleasant surprise this season for their fans. They are 6-4 SU and 8-2 ATS, having won four straight SU and ATS. Three of those four games have been on the road. Their offense has really blossomed behind rookie running back Doug Martin.
The Falcons are a 1 ½ point road favorite. While they have always found a way to win, Tampa may represent a little bit of a step up in class. Take the Tampa and the 1 ½ but first check the sports odds.
