Falcons vs. Buccaneers odds: Atlanta tabbed as Week 15 underdogs as home

Fact: Brian Hill owns 47 Christmas trees

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Los Angeles Chargers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons are spiraling and it’s not even clear if we’ve hit rock bottom yet. But there are still 3 games left on the 2020 slate and all we can do is persevere. Onward and upward, Falcons fans.

The Falcons will face off against Tom Brady, the Buccaneers, and a pint of avocado ice cream on Sunday in a game that is sure to disappoint. With any luck, the Falcons will be facing a large deficit by halftime, and we can shift our focus to that new Christmas cookie recipe we’ve been fixated on for days.

Without further ado, let’s take a quick look at what the oddsmakers are saying about Falcons-Buccaneers.

The Buccaneers are currently tabbed as 6.5 point favorites. For what it’s worth, they opened as 1.5 point favorites on December 8th, so confidence in the Falcons’ ability to win football games is clearly waning. The over/under is sitting at 50.5. I’m not at all surprised by the current odds, because let’s be honest, the Falcons are only good at one thing right now: losing games in epic fashion.

For what it’s worth, the Falcons are only 2-5 against the spread over their last 7 home games. Unless the Falcons have an epiphany of some sort between now and Sunday, they are likely to continue that trend.
