The reigning Super Bowl champs travel to Atlanta for a divisional matchup against an inconsistent Falcons side. Atlanta can propel themselves into playoff contention with an upset win here, but the Bucs are looking to clinch the division ASAP and secure the #1 seed in the conference, so you know they’ll be more than up for this one. 

Tampa will once again be without Antonio Brown, who on top of being injured has now been suspended by the NFL for three games due to a vaccine card misdemeanour. This means it’ll once again be Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as Brady’s pass-catching options at the WR position. Veteran Evans has, once again, been a consistent presence in the offense with 60 or more receiving yards in seven of eleven games this season. The big-bodied former Texas A&M man has often enjoyed playing against Atlanta throughout his career. In 14 games against today’s opponents, Evans has nine games with 60 or more yards receiving. Evans also has 10TDs against the Falcons in his career and also has ten on the year so far. I like his chances of making it 11 in both on Sunday. 

Spread: Falcons +10.5

Total: 50.5

Game Prediction: Bucs 28-21 Falcons

Best Bet: Buccaneers to win outright, Mike Evans over 59.5 receiving yards & to score a TD @ 12/5 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
