Thursday Night Football Prediction

Posted: 09/18/2014 by levcohen in Football

This week’s Thursday Night Football game looks like it could be a blowout, just like last week’s (Pittsburgh-Baltimore). The 0-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons. Now, I thought the Buccaneers would be a possible playoff team heading into the season, but that’s not going to happen now that the Buccaneers have lost two winnable home games. Meanwhile, the Falcons were getting a lot of buzz after their week one win over New Orleans, but I’ve been consistent in saying I think they’ll be average at best. That’s why I’m not going to pick this game to end in a blowout like others are predicting.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-2, 0-2 ATS) at Atlanta Falcons (1-1, 1-1):
Spread: Falcons favored by 6.5
Over/under: 47
My prediction: Think the Falcons take this one 24-20, as Matt Ryan plays well but the Buccaneers hang around.
