Atlanta at Tampa Bay
Sunday 09/19 04:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Atlanta +12.5 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: LOSS
Atlanta has a new coaching staff that is anxious to make amends with a better effort after a poor showing in the opener, especially against a division rival. They have a talented, veteran QB in Matt Ryan and are 14-3 ATS in Week 2, as well as 25-11 ATS after scoring fewer than 15 points in the last game. The Falcons stumbled through a 4-12 campaign last season, but they went toe-to-toe with Tampa when they first met, a 31-27 game as Ryan threw for 356 yards (34-of-49 without Julio Jones). Defending champion Tampa Bay has the bullseye on its back with everyone treating this as their Super Bowl. Dallas was a big dog in Week 1, but they took the Bucs to the wire in a 31-29 squeaker. The Bucs turned it over four times, and the defense surrendered 451 yards. The dog has covered four of the last five when these rivals clash, and Atlanta is 40-17 ATS after allowing 150+ yards rushing in their last contest. Play Atlanta.
