The Bucs hope to rebound from a tough loss to the Lions as they square off with the Falcons in a critical NFC South matchup in Week 7.

Let's check out the opening odds and see how you can win an instant $200 DraftKings bonus betting on this game right now.

Falcons vs. Buccaneers Week 7 Odds, Spread and Total

The Bucs opened as 2.5-point favorites with the total points set at 39, implying a defensive slugfest between these rivals.

Each of Tampa Bay's last three games went under the total, while Falcons games have gone under in four straight. Atlanta, in particular, is struggling offensively thanks to Desmond Ridder's poor play, averaging just 16.5 points per game (29th in NFL).

Baker Mayfield is performing better than expected in his first season as Tampa's starting QB while the defense remains stout. Sitting atop the NFC South, the Bucs hope to take control of the divsion and continue Ridder's slide.

With three straight home wins over the Falcons, Tampa Bay has a terrific opportunity to shock the pundits and surge ahead of the competition in the division.
