The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tennessee Titans will match up on the NFL circuit Sunday.
Tampa comes in here at just 2-4 on the year. The Bucs have taken out the Panthers and Rams but lost to the 49ers, Giants, Saints and Panthers.
In the loss to the Panthers, Tampa Bay QB Jameis Winston put up 400 yards and a TD but threw a whopping five interceptions. Chris Godwin got most of the work with 10 grabs for 151 receiving yards.
Over on the Titans’ side, they’re 3-4 so far. Tennessee has losses to the Colts, Jags, Bills and Broncos but they’ve beaten the Browns, Falcons and Chargers.
In the win over the Chargers, Tennessee QB Ryan Tannehill put up 312 yards with two TDs and an INT. Derrick Henry rushed for 90 yards and a score, and Corey Davis had 80 yards and a TD on six receptions.
The Bucs are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six road games and 3-1-1 ATS versus a team with a losing record. Tampa is 6-14 ATS in their last 20 in Week 8 and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 after a bye week.
Meanwhile, the Titans are 14-33-4 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six overall. Tennessee is 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven in October and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five home games.
The Jameis Winston era is winding down in Tampa by most accounts, and the Bucs will probably just phone it in the rest of the season as they set their sights on the 2020 draft. That said, the team has been scoring pretty well otherwise, with at least 24 points in each of their last four outings.
Tennessee is in the same proverbial boat with Marcus Mariota, and they’ll be looking for answers in the draft as well. That makes this game a boatload full of “meh,” and forward-thinking fans will probably be rooting for the other side. I’m going with Tampa to cover on offensive potential but the situations on both teams should cause you to stay away here.
