The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers meet Sunday in week 6 NFL action at Acrisure Stadium. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to build on their 3-2 record. The Pittsburgh Steelers look to snap a 4-game losing streak.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won their last 6 road games. Tom Brady is completing 68.1 percent of his passes for 1,409 yards, 7 touchdowns and 1 interception. Mike Evans and Leonard Fournette have combined for 510 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns, while Russell Gage has 23 receptions.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 6-2-1 SU in their last 9 home games. Kenny Pickett is completing 67.7 percent of his passes for 447 yards, 0 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Diontae Johnson and George Pickens have combined for 517 receiving yards on 45 catches, while Pat Freiermuth has 20 receptions.

Defensively, Pittsburgh is allowing 25.6 points and 416.8 yards per game.

The Buccaneers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games on grass. The Steelers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Buccaneers last 5 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Steelers last 6 home games. The Buccaneers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The road team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting healthier by the week and that offense is starting to really come along with receivers back in the mix. The Pittsburgh Steelers are nonexistent offensively, and that includes being ranked 30th in scoring offense. The Steelers defense is on the field too much, and it's played a role in dropping to 30th in total defense and 27th in scoring defense. This is a lot of chalk in the NFL, especially for a road team, but we have two teams heading in different directions. It's Bucs and the chalk or pass for me.
