Atlanta Falcons Open as Week 10 Betting Underdogs vs Buccaneers

Atlanta Falcons


Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Sunday, November 09, 2014 1:00 PM ET
Raymond James Stadium


The Atlanta Falcons travel to Tampa to take on the Bucs in a battle of struggling NFC South bottom feeders.

The 2-6 Falcons have endured a five-game losing streak, 1-4 ATS, after starting the season 2-1, including a 56-14 rout of the Buccaneers as 6.5-point home favorites. They are also just 6-20-1 ATS in their past 27 home games.

Atlanta is also winless on the road in their last six, 2-4 ATS with the UNDER carrying in their last four, 5-3 on the season.

The 1-7 Buccaneers have lost their last four, but are a solid 3-2 ATS in their last five. Tampa Bay has struggled particularly at home, where they have been SU losers as they are 6-20-1 ATS in their past 27 home games. They are also just 2-13 SU as small home dogs of 1-3 points since the 2006 season, so being small dogs does not motivate the Bucs to win games.

The Bucs are a dismal 3-9 SU in their last 12 against Atlanta but an encouraging 2-3-1 ATS in their last six meetings.
