The Line: Tennessee Titans -2.5 -- Over/Under: 45.5
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans meet Sunday in NFL action at Nissan Stadium.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off a bye and need a victory to rebound from a 2-4 record. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have split their last four non-home games. Jameis Winston is completing 60 percent of his passes for 1,771 yards, 12 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Winston has 12 touchdown passes in his last five games. Chris Godwin and Mike Evans have combined for 1,106 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while O.J. Howard has 13 receptions. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ground game is averaging 98.2 yards per contest, and Ronald Jones II leads the way with 279 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Tampa Bay is allowing 30.8 points and 372.5 yards per game. Lavonte David leads the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 41 tackles, Shaquil Barrett has nine sacks and Vernon Hargreaves III has one interception.
The Tennessee Titans look for another victory to get back to a .500 record. The Tennessee Titans have lost two of their last three home games. Ryan Tannehill is completing 80 percent of his passes for 456 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Tannehill enters this game with 45 pass attempts under his belt this season. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis have combined for 654 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Adam Humphries has 25 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 102 yards per contest, and Derrick Henry leads the way with 506 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 16 points and 328 yards per game. Rashaan Evans leads the Tennessee Titans with 55 tackles, Harold Landry III has four sacks and Kevin Byard has three interceptions.
The Buccaneers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following a bye week and 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 games in October. The Titans are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games in October, 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Buccaneers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Titans last 7 home games. The over is 4-0 in Buccaneers last 4 games overall.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 4-2-2 ATS in their last eight games as a road underdog. The Tennessee Titans are 2-4 ATS in their last six games as a home favorite. The Bucs have had an extra week to prepare, which is always good, but they've allowed 30 or more points in five of their first six games. The Tennessee Titans finally put together a complete game last week and got a very impressive performance from Tannehill, who should be eager to save his NFL career as a starter. Even with extra rest, I'm not running to the window to bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I'll lay the small chalk with the Titans at home.
