The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Falcons are 7.5-point home favorites versus the Bucs while the over/under total currently sits at 48.5 points, down from the opening number of 49.

The Records

Atlanta enters play with a 6-1 record and is 4-3 against the spread, while Tampa Bay is 2-4 straight up and 3-3 at the betting window. The Bucs are also 2-1 against the spread on the road this year while the Falcons are 2-1 ATS at home.

The Pick

Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense has been completely out of sync the past three weeks. Despite a great matchup against a Titans defense that was banged up, Atlanta scored just 10 points last Sunday in Tennessee as Ryan and the passing game continues to struggle. Making matters worse, Matt Bryant has missed three field goals in his last six attempts, so even when the Falcons have moved the ball their drives haven't always netted points. Jameis Winston and Co. are already a picture of perfect football but 7.5 points is too much to lay on a Falcons team that is struggling despite their 6-1 record.
