NFL: DEC 22 Jaguars at Falcons

2019 has been a rough year for the Falcons. They went into this season with a “do or die” mentality. And for the first 8 games of the year, they did much more dyin’ than doin’. In their defense, the second half of the season has in large part been a joy to watch.

So what are the oddsmakers saying about their Week 17 matchup against the Buccaneers?

The Buccaneers are currently 1 point favorites, believe it or not. They opened as 2 point favorites, so the line has shrunk a bit in recent days. The Buccaneers have won 4 of their last 5 games, but the Falcons are riding high on a 3-game winning streak, so you can see why it’s difficult to call this game.

The Buccaneers are trying to get to .500 before the season wraps up and the Falcons are trying to save Dan Quinn’s job. It’s worth noting that the Falcons are 6-2 against the spread since the bye week. It’s also worth noting that the Buccaneers are 2-5 against the spread over their last 7 games against NFC opponents.
