Football betting numbers have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers heavily favored in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Bucs are thought of as a playoff team by many NFL betting experts while the Falcons are still in rebuilding mode. Here is a look at this Week 2 matchup.
Football betting on this game could be interesting, simply for the fact that Atlanta now has an offense with quarterback Matt Ryan and running back Michael Turner. Last year’s football betting numbers should be vastly improved since these two players are impacting the offense. NFL betting experts know that the defense of Atlanta will also need to be improved if they expect to contain the Bucs offense. Tampa Bay was right in the middle of the league last season offensively but that was all they needed as the defense was 2nd in the league according to NFL betting stats. That could mean a low scoring game on in Week 2 NFL betting odds between these two teams. The Bucs are led by quarterback Jeff Garcia who usually does just enough to win games and avoids making mistakes. He will look to a ground game led by Ernest Graham to give him support.
Football betting stats show that Tampa Bay has won four of the last six meetings at home against Atlanta but they are only 3-3 versus the football betting pointspread. Four of those six games went over the football betting total. Tampa Bay is normally tough at home so this will be a very good test for the young Atlanta team.
Atlanta is 4-4-1 in their last nine games on the road within the division according to football betting stats. The Bucs are also 4-4-1 in their last nine divisional home games according to football betting stats. The Falcons have been a big under team on the road recently. 16 of their last 24 games on the road have gone under the football betting total. Tampa Bay has seen 12 of their last 18 games within the division go over the total according to football betting numbers.
