Free NFL Pick: Buccaneers +8 @ Sports Betting Sportsbook

The Buccaneers know that they have a lot of work to be done if they are going to go on the road and win this game against the Falcons. They had a good game last week offensively against the Philadelphia Eagles, scoring 20 points for the first time this year, and they took advantage of a defense that really doesn’t get a heck of a lot of pressure on the quarterback. Does this sound like a familiar plot? That’s how the New York Jets came on the road and beat these Falcons on Monday Night Football two weeks ago, and it might be how the Bucs pull off the same stunt this week.

The bottom line for the Falcons is that all of the players that really make them great are out of the fold. Their best offensive lineman, OT Sam Baker is doubtful to play. Their best tailback, RB Steven Jackson hasn’t suited in a month and is still up in the air. Their best receiver is out for the season in WR Julio Jones, and their second best receiver in WR Roddy White hasn’t looked right all season long and isn’t guaranteed to play in this one with a hamstring problem. Arguably their two best defensive players, LB Sean Weatherspoon and DE Kroy Biermann have long-term injuries that could cost them their whole season. It’s just a bad situation right now in Atlanta. The Falcons are just 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games here at the Georgia Dome against the Bucs, and they are 1-5 ATS in their last six played here at home overall. The mystique of the Georgia Dome is wearing off, and Tampa Bay can really take advantage of that in this one on Sunday. I told this to you first: The Bucs are winning this game SU.
