It’s that time again, when everyone’s wondering which teams are going to be facing off on the big screen during the Thursday Night Football game.
I admit I’m a little behind with my homework, only I have a good excuse. I was busy last night, watching the baseball game, and for that I make no apologies.
I love baseball, and no disrespect to the NFL but the seventh game of the 2016 World Series between the Cubs and the Indians was a sight to be seen. Congrats to the Cubs.
Tonight’s football game is Atlanta vs. Tampa Bay Bucs and the odds at Westgate Superbook are Atlanta -4, and the OVER / UNDER total 51. In the Week 1 matchup, Tampa Bay beat Atlanta 31-24 but lots has changed since then and there’s a reason why the Falcons are favored. Jameis Winston has been unpredictable and things have not been going his way as of late. Things could turn around here and Tampa Bay should be able to keep things close. In fact, they might even come out on top.
Prediction: Take OVER 51. I can see a score, 28-27. Atlanta on the Money Line could be more favorable than just to cover. The Falcons are 5-3 ATS this season, while the OVER is 7-1 in their contests.
Encore: I’ll be watching over at Steiner’s Pub, at 8168 S. Las Vegas Blvd., if you want to hang with me during the game, and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, @SportSXMichelle. Good Luck to all those who decide to wager on the game!
