NFL Predictions Against The Point Spread Week 7 – Falcons Desperate For Win against Buccaneers


NFL Spreads: The 1-4 Atlanta Falcons are the betting odds favorites at home in week 7 as they host the 0-5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even though the Tampa comes into the game winless on the seasons, you can also say that the Atlanta Falcons have been even more disappointing. The Atlanta Falcons almost made the Super Bowl a year ago but they are having major problems on both sides of the ball and they will have to rebound without wide receiver Julio Jones who is out for the season. Let’s look at the contest and NFL predictions. Winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFL Predictions

Hot Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t won a game this season as they are 0-5 straight up. They are also a very poor 1-4 against the NFL spreads. The defense had been holding up pretty well for the team but last week they collapsed as they allowed 31 points in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The offense for the team was a little better as rookie Mike Glennon threw for 273 yards and two touchdowns but it was not enough as it was the defense that let the team down. Oddsmakers currently have the Falcons listed as 7-point favorites versus the Buccaneers, while the game’s total is sitting at 43.

Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl or Bust Looks Like a Bust

The Atlanta Falcons motto this season is “Super Bowl or Bust.” After five games it sure looks like the season is going to be a bust. The Atlanta Falcons have made the playoffs in four of the last five years but just making the playoffs this season looks like a longshot with the team losing four of their first five games. And the Atlanta Falcons will have to go forward without wide receiver Julio Jones who is out for the season due to injury. And it is not the offense that is the biggest part of the problem for this team. The defense has been awful as they have allowed nearly 27 points per game.

Game Notes

The Atlanta Falcons have won 7 of the last 10 in this series but they are just 3-6-1 ATS. The teams split their two meetings with three of the last four going under. The Atlanta Falcons have won six of the last ten at home in the series but they are just 3-7 against the NFL spreads.

NFL Picks

Despite the trends I have to take the home team and lay the points at the sportsbook in this one. We’ll look for history to put a halt to the Falcons’ hemorrhaging while the Bucs continue to walk the plank.
