Bucs vs. Falcons

  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are -290 favorites to beat the Atlanta Falcons.

  • The Dallas Cowboys are three-point favorites to beat the New York Giants.

TAMPA BAY, Fla. – Sports bettors who are putting action on the final week of NFL regular-season games will find no shortage of betting lines and odds available.

With teams playing for last-minute playoff contention, many games may be hard-fought and could lead to several upsets.

Taking a look at the odds, sports bettors can cash in big while breaking the book betting on the NFL in Week 17. Sometimes the best odds are hidden by the bookmaker.

Atlanta Falcons Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds

  • Moneyline: Tampa Bay -290, Atlanta +240
  • Spread: Tampa Bay -6.5
  • Totals: Over/Under 50.5

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already beaten the Atlanta Falcons earlier in the season. That game ended with Tom Brady leading the Bucs to a fourth-quarter comeback victory.

Sports bettors are expecting the Buccaneers, who are currently on a three-game winning streak to continue their dominance against the Falcons. In addition, Tampa Bay is only one game behind the saints to claim the NFC South, adding a bit more motivation for the Bucs.

Sports bettors who are leaning on the favorites to win may want to look further at legal sports betting sites as deeper odds could lead to bigger wins.

While the Bucs were down 21 to nothing in the first half against the Falcons the last time they faced one another, a more motivated Buccaneers team could come out the gate swinging, leading to a dominating performance and a lead heading into halftime.

Should sports bettors take Tampa Bay to be up by at least a touchdown by halftime, the payout would be -6.5 +125. Halftime spreads are a great way to break the book and win early money before the game is even complete.

Green Bay Packers Vs. Chicago Bears Odds

  • Moneyline: Green Bay -145, Chicago +205
  • Spread: Green Bay -5.5
  • Totals: Over/Under 50.5

What makes this divisional rivalry game interesting is that both the Bears and the Packers are currently on win streaks. Two red hot teams matching up could lead to some spectacle and possibly an upset for underdog bettors.

Green Bay has already licked up the division, but a win Sunday against Chicago will also guarantee the Packers lead the NFC heading into the postseason.

In addition, QB Aaron Rodgers is neck and neck in the MVP race with Patrick Mahomes, giving him extra motivation heading into the matchup with Chicago.

With a game like this, sports bettors may want to avoid taking the spread or moneyline altogether as the Packers are such overwhelming favorites and instead look to wagering on the totals.

Looking deeper into online sportsbooks, bettors can find betting lines for both game totals and first-half totals that would break the book.

Sports bettors could go home cashing in big if both teams combine for a low scoring first half. Taking the Under for 22.0 total first-half points could net a +150 payout.

Green Bay has consistently had the Under hit in several games this season. The Under is 4-0 in the last four Packers game after they allow less than 15 points, the Under is also 5-1 in the last six games following Green Bay covering the spread, and the Under is 4-1 for the packers in their last five games as the favorite.

Taking the Under is a safe bet based on the Packers’ play this season. Should Green Bay and Chicago have a low scoring first half, sports bettors could be cashing in big.

Dallas Cowboys Vs. New York Giants Odds

  • Moneyline: Dallas -160, New York +140
  • Spread: Dallas -3.0
  • Totals Over/Under 44.5

Shockingly enough, this game could wind up being a deciding factor for which NFC East team makes the playoffs. The Dallas Cowboys have an even 6-9 record with the Washington Football Team, and Washington is currently on a two-game losing streak while Dallas has won all their last three.

The New York Giants are actually one game behind both Dallas and Washington, but the Giants are currently on a three-game losing streak. Sports bettors are leaning towards New York taking the win, but both teams will be coming in motivated for a chance to make the playoffs.

Dallas’ main issue to win this game, however, is the big loss of Zack Martin in the offensive line. The all-pro right guard suffered a calf injury which will leave QB Andy Dalton exposed against New York.

While the Giants’ defense has not been much to admire this season, New York did almost beat the Giants when they played earlier in the season, instead losing 34-37.

With a weaker offensive line, New York could exploit the red-hot Cowboys and wind up with the upset win. Longshot bettors should also note that Dallas is only favored by a field goal.

If sports bettors were to take action on the longshot Giants, increasing their wafer to New York winning by a field goal would net lucky sports bettors a +190 payout. This would turn longshot betting into an even bigger win, breaking the book.

Sometimes the best betting lines are hidden at online sportsbooks, sports bettors should scour the books to find the best way to win big.
