Why Bet On Tampa Bay?

Despite the fact that the Bucs have lost two straight and three of their last four, there are a few reasons to back Tampa Bay in this contest. First and foremost, the Buccaneers have gone a surprising 2-1 in three road games this season. Then, there’s the fact that Tampa Bay averages a stellar 28.8 points per contest to rank fourth in scoring to Tennessee’s far more modest 17.3 points per game (27th).

Last but not least, the Buccaneers have put together a bunch of encouraging ATS trends like their 8-1-1 ATS mark in their last 10 games following a double-digit loss at home.

Why Bet On Tennessee?

While the Titans have had their struggles this season, there are a handful of good reasons to back the AFC South title hopefuls in this matchup. First and foremost, the Titans have a stingy defense that limits the opposition to just 16.0 points per game to rank fourth in points allowed.

Buccaneers vs Titans is going to be a close one.

Then, there’s the fact that the Titans are playing at home and looking to improve on their modest 1-2 mark in their comfy confines so far this season. Last but not least, the Titans have to be feeling good about themselves after getting a huge, 23-20 home win over the Chargers last weekend.

Expert Final Score Prediction for Buccaneers vs Titans

The Tennessee Titans might be playing at home in this contest and they might have an elite defense, but for me, I just can’t bring myself to back any team that is starting the awful Ryan Tannehill at quarterback. I’m sorry, but I don;t believe Tannehill is better than Marcus Mariota and I believe the Titans will find that out as the season progresses, starting with this contest.

If nothing else, Tampa Bay can score the ball like crazy and they are definitely in desperation mode right now. I love head coach Bruce Arians and I think he’s going to find a way to help Jameis Winston stop throwing interceptions like they’re free Skittles, at least for one week.

The Bucs are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up loss and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six road games. Conversely, Tennessee has gone a discouraging 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and winless 0-4-1 ATS in their last five home games. I like Tampa Bay for the upset road win and accompanying ATS cover!

Score: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27 – Tennessee Titans 21
