Week 4 NFL action is underway, but FanDuel Sportsbook has already released NFL odds and lines for Week 5, giving us an early preview of next week's slate.

Week 5's 1 p.m. slate sets up an exciting matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Falcons vs Buccaneers Odds & Lines Week 5

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: ATL: (+330) | TB: (-420)
Spread: ATL: +8.5 (-110) | TB: -8.5 (-110)
Total: N/A — Over: (N/A) | Under: (N/A)

The Buccaneers are slated as a big favorite at Raymond James Stadium once again. Tampa Bay is an early -420 moneyline favorite over Atlanta and is favored by 8.5 points on the spread.

Falcons vs Buccaneers Prediction Week 5

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Falcons: 14.1% to win
Buccaneers: 85.8% to win

The Buccaneers could control this game from start to finish, according to the opening betting lines. ESPN's FPI seems to also think Tampa Bay emerges victorious and I agree. This game comes down to how well the Bucs defense has performed in 2022. They have enough depth in the secondary to keep up with rookie wideout Drake London and enough speed at linebacker to keep quarterback Marcus Mariota contained in the pocket. With Tom Brady leading the offense, give me Tampa Bay -8.5 (-110).
