NFL Week 6 Free Pick - Tampa Bay at Atlanta

Dave looks at one of the featured Week 6 matchups this Sunday, an NFC South battle between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons.

Prediction for the Tampa Bay at Atlanta NFL matchup

The 2-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers come off a bye as 3.5-point road underdogs for this Sunday’s NFC South tilt against the struggling 1-4 Atlanta Falcons. Elite-rated VietBet has set the total line at 57.5 points for this 1 p.m. start on FOX from Mercedes-Benz Stadium. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL predictionCurrent Odds:
Tampa Bay -3.5
Atlanta 57.5

Tampa Bay got everyone’s attention right out of the gate with a road win against New
Orleans and a home win against Philadelphia as an underdog in each contest. Hit with a harsh dose of reality, the Buccaneers dropped their next two games to Pittsburgh on the road and Chicago at home for a 2-2 start both straight-up and against the spread. The total went OVER VietBet’s closing line in all four games.

Jameis Winston missed the first three games of the season due to a league suspension and he should get the start at quarterback coming off the bye. In his place, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 1,356 yards and 11 touchdowns. His magical touch in the first two games began to run dry in his next two efforts. Mike Evans leads the offense in receptions (29) and receiving yards (426) and DeSean Jackson demonstrated his big play ability with seven receptions for 20 yards or more and three of the 12 touchdowns scored through the air.

Atlanta Falcons NFL prediction

The Falcons dropped to 1-4 both SU and ATS on VietBet’s closing line with Sunday’s 41-17 meltdown against Pittsburgh as 3.5-point road underdogs. The other three losses this season were by a combined 13 points. The lone win was a 31-24 victory against rival Carolina as 5.5-point home favorites in Week 2. The total has gone OVER in all four games.

Atlanta went into halftime of Sunday’s game against the Steelers trailing 13-10 before the wheels came off in the second half. Matt Ryan threw for 285 yards and one score before giving way to Matt Schaub when things got out of hand. The Falcons could only muster 62 yards on the ground in 19 rushing attempts.

I see both teams airing it out early and often in what could be one of the bigger shootouts of the day. I like Atlanta at home SU, but I am betting the game goes OVER VietBet’s total line. is your international headquarters for the best in NFL betting action, offering sports wagering in English, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Spanish.
