NFL Odds at US Sportsbooks -- Do the Bucs Have Enough to Extract Some Payback

NFL Odds at US Sportsbooks Do the Bucs Have Enough to Extract Some Payback? One of the most painful things for an NFL team is to get beat by a lot of points. And the first time the Tampa Bay Buccaneers faced off against the Atlanta Falcons, they were beaten by a LOT of points. In fact, it was one of the most humiliating episodes for any team this season. So what are they going to do about it? They have a shot to get some revenge on their own turf, as they play host to the Falcons, were not necessarily road warriors, and Raymond James Stadium.

There are some of the details on the pro football betting game:

NFL Sportsbook Betting Matchup: Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Date/Time: Sunday, November 9 – 1 PM ET

TV Coverage: Fox Network

NFL Odds at BetAnySports: Falcons -3 (-120)

Total: 47 points

The Falcons, who are often very formidable on the fast track at the Georgia Dome, got off to a very fast start against the Bucs the first time around, and the game was essentially over in the second quarter. After three quarters it was 56-0, and by that time Tampa Bays starting quarterback, Josh McCown, was out of the game with a hand injury. That injury has kept him out of action until right now. He has been practicing for a few weeks, and coach Lovie Smith has decided to insert him into the lineup in place of Mike Glennon, in an effort to get something going on the offensive end.

In the action he has seen, the veteran has completed 63% of his passes with two touchdowns and four interceptions. The Bucs like to think they have found at least a short-term solution in the backfield, with Bobby Rainey averaging 4.6 yards per carry, which, as BetAnySports NFL Football Betting customers are aware, is more than commendable. Rookie Charles Sims should be available to add some depth. But these guys have a long way to go; Tampa Bay has been outgained by 96 yards a game. They have done a credible job against the run, but when you allow eight yards per pass attempt, you can play into the hands of someone like Matt Ryan, who is going to be swinging, no matter what the situation is.

The numbers for Atlanta’s offense and point production are not impressive over the last four games, however. The Falcons have scored only 61 points, and NFL odds bettors have no idea how they are going to react to the psychological blow they suffered in London, when they blew a 21-point lead against Detroit and lost on a field goal with time running out. Tampa Bay had better clear up some of its special teams problems, as they had a punt AND a field goal blocked against Cleveland last week. But one encouraging sign was that Mike Evans, the big receiver out of Texas A&M, caught seven passes for 124 yards. And Atlanta, with only seven sacks on the season, is not likely to put a lot of pressure on McCown.

The Falcons have been notoriously bad on the road, losing eleven of their last 12 straight-up when they are the visiting team. Perhaps this is one of the things that can provide an opening for the Buccaneers, who have dropped all four of their games, both straight-up and against the football betting pointspread, at Raymond James Stadium.
