The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a decent shot at making the playoffs, but if they want to stay in the NFC South race, they must defeat the Atlanta Falcons this weekend.

Why To Bet On The Falcons

The boys from Atlanta are continuing to win games left and right, staking their claim to being the very best team in the NFC. The Falcons are not only winning, it should be said; coach Mike Smith’s club is taking down quality opponents. The Falcons spent the month of November beating the very same Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Green Bay Packers, three teams with at least seven wins. The Falcons looked soft in the preseason, but their defense really toughened up once the regular season began. In fact, Atlanta’s earlier win over Tampa Bay was the product of a fourth-down stop in a short-yardage situation on Nov. 7. In a game Atlanta led by a tenuous 27-21 score, the Bucs drove to the Falcons’ 2-yard line with just under three minutes left in regulation. However, on that fourth-and-one play from the 2, the Falcons stuffed the Bucs and held on to win by six points. That one play will give the visitors immense confidence as they stride into Raymond James Stadium for this late-afternoon encounter.

The other reason to bet on the Falcons is that they have Matt Ryan, one of the coolest customers in the NFL, especially during two-minute drills. Tampa Bay doesn’t have anyone like Matt Ryan on its roster. That’s a big difference right there.

Why To Bet On The Buccaneers

The Bucs talked a big game before that 27-21 loss to Atlanta on Nov. 7. Coach Raheem Morris was very up front about saying that his team was going to win that contest. The Buccaneers didn’t, but they still gained a lot of respect around the league for pushing the Falcons to the brink. Tampa Bay played a powerful blue-collar brand of football that knocked Atlanta back on its heels at times. Just a little bit more execution would have enabled this unfortunate franchise to move up the pecking order in the NFC. As things stand now, however, Tampa Bay should still be very confident about its ability to trade punches with the Falcons in the trenches. By getting that one extra yard, this upstart team could change perceptions in a hurry and make the NFC South a much more crowded three-horse race. As long as quarterback Josh Freeman exhibits good ball security and plays with the patience his coaching staff is asking him to deliver, the Bucs have a very good chance of handing the Falcons their third loss of the season.

How The Game Will Play Out

This looks and breathes like a very close game, so a definitive and strong pick seems unwise. However, if you want to lean in one direction, the combination of the Bucs’ home-field advantage plus the Tampa Bay locker room’s desire to stay in the division race will prove to be decisive. Take the Bucs at home.
