The Buccaneers opened as home underdogs for their game against the NFC-leading Falcons in Week 12.

The Atlanta Falcons opened as 1½ point road favorites over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their match-up on Sunday, but that line has since moved to a pick 'em on some sites. The Falcons are 9-1, but have narrowly avoided losses against poor teams recently. The Bucs are riding a four-game winning streak and are looking to keep up in the NFC playoff race.

The total was initially set at 48, and has since moved to 50. Both teams have high-scoring offenses. Tampa Bay is scoring 28.7 points per game, while Atlanta is putting up 27.0 per contest. The Buccaneers have hit the over four out of five times at home this season.

Atlanta has won 6 of 10 meetings between these two teams, but has been just 3-7 against the spread in those games. The Falcons and Bucs have hit the over in five of their last 10 get-togethers.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET.
