Teaser Pick 2: Atlanta vs. Arizona and Tampa Bay vs. Seattle

Teaser Pick 2: Atlanta vs. Arizona and Tampa Bay vs. Seattle

The Teaser: Pair Atlanta and Tampa Bay

Game 1: Atlanta vs. Arizona

The Initial Line:

Atlanta -4 home vs. Arizona

The Take:

Add 8.5 points to Atlanta’s line

The Final Line:

Atlanta +4.5

The Breakdown:

Atlanta enjoyed a bye week after a 6-4 start to the season. Arizona wasn’t able to win the battle in Minnesota, as they fell 30-24. Arizona has had a tough season thus far, as their 4 victories have only been secured against some weaker opponents in the NFL (San Francisco twice, New York Jets, and Tampa Bay). Turnovers have been an issue all season, as they’re tied for 26th with 18 turnovers on the season. Atlanta has been dominant on offense through 10 games, as they rank 1st in the NFL in points (32 PPG). Matt Ryan is having his best season of his career, as he ranks in the top 3 in yards, TDs, and passer rating. The extra rest from the bye week should suit them well as they get a few key players back from injury, so this should help them succeed at home this weekend. Grab some extra points in case Arizona finds a way to scrap together the late win.

Game 2: Tampa Bay vs. Seattle

The Initial Line:

Tampa Bay +5.5 home vs. Seattle

The Take:

Add 8.5 points to Tampa Bay’s line

The Final Line:

Tampa Bay +14

The Breakdown:

Tampa Bay got a huge underdog win on the road Sunday, as they went on the road to defeat Kansas City 19-17. Seattle kept their momentum going as well, as they secured the home win over Philadelphia 26-15. Despite a quiet start to the year, Tampa Bay has won 4 of their past 6 and is only a game back in the NFC South division. Their offense has been surprisingly good, as they rank 11th in the NFL in yards/game. They’ve also been able to hold opponents under 17 points the last 2 games which is an upward trend for their team. Seattle has had a little momentum of their own after 3 straight victories, but traveling to the East coast may tire out some of the players. I see this as a close game, even if Tampa Bay can’t pull off the upset. Take them with the extra points here.
