Vegas is not ready to completely abandon the Falcons' bandwagon, probably because so many of Atlanta's games end up being so close. Despite being on the road against a Buccaneers team that has had much more success over the last month, the line is even to start the week.
There is, as usual, a certain amount of logic to this. The Buccaneers are fresh off an embarrassing loss to the Colts, they're not exactly a great football team just yet, and division game are always a great equalizer. The Falcons did barely lose in overtime to the Buccaneers just a short time ago, so while this one's on the road, I'm not feeling as lousy about it as I should be. If the Falcons turn the ball over one fewer time and coax a turnover out of Jameis Winston, they just might win this.
Of course, last time these two teams met the Falcons were handily favored at home, so assume nothing. Given that a loss here would drop the Falcons to .500, put the Buccaneers on level footing, and potentially give the Seahawks a running start in the Wild Card, this game and every one that follows it is critical for this team.
