Atlanta Falcons: The season's first meeting between the Falcons (9-1 straight-up, 6-4 against the spread) and the Bucs finds Atlanta holding a three-game advantage in the NFC South over Tampa Bay. Atlanta has failed to cover its last two games but is 4-1 SU and ATS on the road this season. The Falcons and Buccaneers split their matchups a year ago, each winning and covering at home.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: First-year head coach Greg Schiano has the Buccaneers (6-4 SU, 8-2 ATS) hitting on all cylinders as they ride a four-game winning streak on the field and at the window into this contest. "Over" bettors are also smiling with a string of seven straight above the total, directly contrasting with this series trend that has seen four of the last six clashes at Raymond James Stadium fail to reach the scoreboard figure.


San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints
NFL Betting Preview
Date:

Television: FOX

San Francisco 49ers: A rematch from last year's NFC Divisional Round in the playoffs, the Niners (7-2-1 SU, 6-4 ATS) come off a very impressive Monday night win over the Bears with second-string quarterback Colin Kaepernick making his first NFL start. Kaepernick was an efficient 16-of-23 for 243 yards and two scoring strikes in the 32-7 triumph, and the San Fran defense held Chicago to less than 150 yards. The "under" is 3-1 in 49ers road games this year.

New Orleans Saints: After starting 0-4, the Saints (5-5 SU, 6-4 ATS) have worked their way back into playoff contention with five wins in the last six games, covering each victory. The ground attack has picked up in recent weeks with at least 140 yards rushing in three consecutive wins. New Orleans has won six of the last seven vs. the 49ers in the Superdome, and seven of the last nine on this Big Easy turf have stayed "under."


Green Bay Packers at New York Giants
NFL Betting Preview
Date:

Television: NBC

Green Bay Packers: This potential playoff preview finds the Pack (7-3 SU, 5-5 ATS) tied with the Bears at the top of the NFC North and riding a five-game winning streak. Green Bay is 4-1 ATS in the span, winning and covering three games on the road during the stretch. The Packers have also won their last four roadies vs. the G-Men, including a 38-35 triumph last December as 7-point road chalk.

New York Giants: The Giants (6-4 SU, 4-5-1 ATS) come off their bye week having lost the last two games prior to taking Week 11 off. New York QB Eli Manning took most of the heat for those setbacks, as he has gone three games without a TD pass while tossing four picks. The Giants have covered three of the last four in this series, including a 37-20 upset at Green Bay in the playoffs last January, and the last five meetings have all gone past the total.
