Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a good bet +9?
Although 1-2 straight up, the Buccaneers have shown flashes of being a good football team. The victory happened against Carolina on the road. Up until the win, the Panthers had beaten the Bucs in 7-of-8.
In Week 3, Tampa allowed the Daniel Jones led New York Giants to rally for a win. Tampa had NYG on the ropes, but they gave it up in the last couple of minutes. The Buccaneers have 9 points to work with in this one. So, if they play as well as they did versus the Panthers and Giants they should leave SoCal with a win against the spread.

Why L.A. Rams are a good bet -9?
The Rams are undefeated because both the offense and defense have played well. However, there’s room for the Rams’ offense to be even better. Last week, the Jared Goff to Cooper Kupp connection was in full force with Goff throwing two touchdowns to Kupp.
That connection should be even stronger on Sunday against a Tampa defense that allows 261 passing yards per. If Goff and Kupp can get it going, things should open for running back Todd Gurley, who only has 203 rushing yards in 3 games.

Buccaneers vs Rams Final NFL Betting Analysis
The L.A. Rams look like one of the better teams in the NFL. Really, though, the Rams could just as easily be 0-3 as they are 3-0. They got off to a great start versus Carolina in Week 1. The Panthers rally fell short.
In Week 2, they knocked out Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees early and got a gift from the referees when a fumble that New Orleans ran back for a touchdown was called dead. In Week 3, they played the Cleveland Browns, so far, a massive disappointment this season.
The Tampa Buccaneers shot themselves in the foot against the Giants. They had that game won until Jones rallied NYG. 9 points are just too many to give up. Tampa is better than that. The Rams will win, but they won’t win by 9 points.
