Bookies.com: Take the Buccaneers to cover vs. Falcons

Bill Speros writes: "After back-to-back losses to Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes II, the Buccaneers get a breather of sorts as Marcus Mariota and the Falcons visit Raymond James Stadium. Brady once beat the Falcons in a Super Bowl after trailing 28-3. Since joining the Bucs in 2020, Brady has averaged 358.2 yards passing against Atlanta and thrown 15 TD passes in just four games. Last season, Tampa Bay covered both double-digit spreads against Atlanta. Brady has not lost three games in a row since the Truman Administration. Or so it seems. In reality, it's been almost 20 years. On October 27, 2002, he and the Patriots dropped their fourth straight decision. Brady and Mike Evans got their groove back in a 41-31 loss on Sunday night. The Buccaneers defense was surprisingly horrid against Mahomes and the Chiefs. Tampa Bay should right the ship this week. Grab them quick for your NFL Week 5 best bets before the line balloons."

Draft Kings: Go with the Buccaneers to cover vs. Falcons

It writes: "The Falcons have a number of intriguing players on offense that should keep the game interesting, but with home-field advantage in play, the Bucs should add this game to the win column. Ahead of their Sunday night matchup, Tampa Bay’s defense has been the best in the NFL with the fewest opposing points allowed per game (9.0). As long as the Bucs can keep Marcus Mariota and company in check, Tom Brady should be able to lead the offense to victory."

The site's formula predicts that the Buccaneers will get the win in a low-scoring game on Sunday.

Fan Duel: Buccaneers 31, Falcons 21

Larry Rupp writes: "Seeing Brady and the Buccaneers drop three consecutive games to start their 2022 home slate and fall below the .500 mark overall would be shocking. That is what's on the line in Week 5, so look for head coach Todd Bowles to have his team ready to bounce back. Winning divisional matchups is key. The Buccaneers have yet to lose to the Falcons with Brady at the helm, posting a 4-0 record over the last two seasons. Three of those four wins were by double-digits, too. They should have no trouble breaking this game open through the air as Atlanta allows 260.0 passing yards per game (No. 25 in NFL)."
