It is not surprising to see the majority of the wagers on the Week 2 matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers come in on the Bucs moneyline. What is surprising is that the largest early moneyline wagers have landed on the underdog Falcons.

Betting Impact:

The Buccaneers are -760 moneyline favorites while the Falcons are +525 underdogs. Per DraftKings, Atlanta's +525 odds have attracted just 8% of the bets but 34% of the handle thus far. A majority of bettors are not going to be thrilled about laying -760 odds with Tampa Bay, so a majority of their moneyline bets are likely to be involved in parlays. However, the disparity between the percentage of bets and money wagered thus far is striking in that there are clearly some bettors who feel Atlanta will upset Tampa Bay on the road.
