The betting odds and point spread on the NFL Week 15 games Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Buffalo Bills vs. Cleveland Browns.

NFL point spread and odds: Atlanta at Tampa Bay, Bills vs. Browns The Sunday NFL Week 15 matchup between the Atlanta Falcons (3-10) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-5) holds the second biggest point spread for this football week, but this would hardly shock anyone. Considering the poor performance of the team under Petrino and other than his surprising resignation before the end of season, the Falcons have little to smile about. There is a small chance that the "cowardly" decision by the former head coach would motivate the Falcons to prove they are not as hopeless as everyone else thinks, but Atlanta would have better chance of winning in the final two games than against the Buccaneers on Sunday. Tampa Bay is looking to clinch the NFC South on home turf and will hardly miss a beat this weekend, keep in mind the Buccaneers already beat the Falcons in November 33-7. The point spread on the Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers is currently sitting at -14 points chalk the Buccaneers at the online sportsbook Bodog Sports, with total posted at 39 points. At Bookmaker the odds on the Falcons are dog +650 and the Buccaneers are favorite with betting odds -950. Atlanta is 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games and Tampa Bay is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games.

 The game between the Buffalo Bills (7-6) and the Cleveland Browns (8-5), on the other side, has much more in stake, with the winner of the Sunday matchup greatly improving their chances of getting to the playoffs. With games against Giants and Eagles coming after, the Bills must take the victory on Sunday to stay relevant in the playoff berth. The odds makers, however, are taking the Browns over the Bills this weekend. At Bodog Sports the point spread on the Buffalo Bills vs. Cleveland Browns game is favoring the Browns -6 points with total at 43.5 points. The odds on the Bills to win the game at Bookmaker sit at +205 and the Browns hold favorite odds -245.

 Both teams will matchup on Sunday with defensive issues.

And Wednesday practice in the Cleveland Browns camp missed DEs Orpheus Roye and Robaire Smith, as well as LBs Willie McGinest and Antwan Peek, wide receiver Joe Jurevicius and running back Lawrence Vickers.
