Falcons vs. Buccaneers odds: Week 12 matchup a push

Scott Cunningham

Atlanta is expected to have its hands full with Tampa Bay this weekend.

The Atlanta Falcons opened as 1.5-point favorites over Week 12 opponent Tampa Bay. Since then, though, the line has moved in the Bucs' direction, and the game is now a push.

The Falcons are coming off a 23-19 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, which improved Atlanta's record to 9-1. That's tied for the best mark in the NFL. It has the team in firm control of the NFC South, though a win by Tampa Bay on Sunday would cut into their margin.

The Buccaneers are 6-4 and in second place in the division, and they're currently riding a four-game winning streak. Over the course of that streak, the Tampa Bay offense has not scored fewer than 27 points in a game.

Atlanta enters the week ranked seventh in the league in total offense and 18th in total defense. The Buccaneers are No. 10 in total offense and No. 29 in total defense.
