Week 17 NFL odds: Buccaneers vs. Falcons

Gregory Shamus

No line has been set for Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Bucs and the Atlanta Falcons.

The Atlanta Falcons and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play their final game of the 2012 regular season this Sunday, and it carries no weight for either team. The Falcons are 13-2, have already wrapped up the number one seed in the NFC, and have clinched home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Bucs are 6-9 and were recently eliminated from the playoffs. That's probably part of the reason why there's no line yet set on the game: Neither team needs to play its starters, and this contest could devolve into a glorified scrimmage.

Atlanta has dominated the NFC for much of the season. Other than a blowout loss to Carolina and a narrow loss to New Orleans, the Falcons have taken care of their business all season. They've beaten good teams like the Broncos, Redskins, Giants and Cowboys to help wrap up the best record in their conference. Tampa Bay has been less fortunate, as five straight losses have rounded a promising playoff bid.
