Falcons Vs. Buccaneers Spread, Odds Update: Atlanta Still Road Favorites

With the Falcons only one day away from their week three matchup, Atlanta remains a one-point road favorite over the division-rival Bucs in the eyes of Vegas. The over/under is also still hovering right around 45.5 and 46 points, very much unchanged from the beginning of the week.

However, it's also worth noting that with this looking to be such a highly contested game, not every betting site is in complete agreeance on the outcome: some have the Bucs being favored over our beloved Birds by one to one-and-a-half points

As for overall outlook, I expect this game to involve more scoring than the over/under would indicate, especially given how poorly both units have performed so far in this very short season. Add in the fact that both quarterbacks have excellent command of their respective offenses, along with both teams possessing incredibly strong running backs that can aid said QBs quickly and efficiently.

If I were forced to pick a this Sunday, I'd also have to go with the Falcons. Raheem Morris has yet to beat the Falcons as a head coach, and over the past few years Atlanta has consistently had the Bucs' number. Look forward to some continued success against the Bucs tomorrow!
