We are in the last week of the NFL regular season, and a number of teams have sealed their position in the playoffs.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers locked in a wildcard position with their domination of the Detroit Lions last week, and they will be hosting the Atlanta Falcons for their last game of the season.
These teams squared off against each other just two weeks ago, with Tom Brady turning up the heat in the second half of the game.
Atlanta, without much to play for at this point, will be a huge question mark for this matchup.
Tampa Bay is in the driver’s seat for the top wildcard spot, so they will be looking to put this one away early in order to rest for the second half.
Any divisional rivalry will have a lot weighing into the matchup, so let’s break it down and determine your best bets.
Atlanta Falcons Betting Preview: Who Is To Blame?
Roughly halfway through the season, the Falcons fired their head coach thinking that will solve all of their problems.
So far, there has yet to be much difference. Their defense is still laughably bad at times, and Matt Ryan is only getting older.
With how many injuries they have dealt with in this 2020 season, their team is just not able to hit their stride.
They boast a plethora of weapons that the Bucs will have to keep in check, but I don’t see it.
I don’t know how Matt Ryan can walk into Tampa Bay with how good Brady has looked these last two weeks and pull off a victory.
A motivated Brady is going to be a scary sight for this Falcons’ defense.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Preview: The Switch Has Flipped
It might be preemptive to say that the Buccaneers have found something here, but man oh man does Brady look sharper than ever.
Throwing the ball, he has never looked better in the past two seasons. It’s hard to believe this guy is 43 and ready to make a run at another Super Bowl.
I think for this game against Atlanta, he is going to be locked in and moving the ball all over the field.
We’ve seen the full display of their weapons (even with Ronald Jones still out) and finally we can believe the team is coming together.
They want that top wildcard spot to match up against the NFC East, so they should come out with a full head of steam.
