The Rams are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in November and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Buccaneers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Rams last 5 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Buccaneers last 8 games overall. The Rams are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Tampa Bay and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 meetings. The underdog is 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 meetings. The road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Rams aren't the same team they were a season ago, and this will be their first road game in a while, which is a bit concerning. However, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the favorite role is a bit weird to see. The Bucs can't finish drives offensively, they have no running game to speak of, and their defense has issues stopping the run as well. I'll take my chances with the Rams and the free field goal, as I can't lay points with a Bucs team that's going nowhere fast.
