Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Buccaneers are quietly improving, and inching their way towards an ambitious postseason run. Tampa Bay has won its last two games, and Tom Brady has clearly entered playoff-mode. RB Leonard Fournette is filling in admirably for the injured Ronald Jones, and WR Antonio Brown has awoken. Brown reeled in five balls for 93 yards last week, scoring his first touchdown of 2020 in the process. The Bucs have the seventh-best O, while the Lions middle-of-the-pack offense is without their top receiver Kenny Golladay again. Tampa’s 12th-ranked defense is loaded and is an elite unit when everything is clicking. Detroit’s defense is ranked dead last, and the Lions got mashed like soft potatoes vs the Titans last week, losing 46-25. The Lions are only 6-13 ATS across their previous 19 contests as an underdog, soon to be 6-14 over 20. Bucs cover. Buccaneers 44, Lions 27
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could still win the NFC South, and they will be facing a very vulnerable defense.
Antonio Brown scored his first TD as a Buccaneer last week, and RB Leonard Fournette has been playing well lately, giving the Bucs’ even more options offensively.
The Buccaneers average 28.6 points per game and the total has gone over in four of their last six games played in December.
Matthew Stafford’s injury problem is well known, but the veteran QB already said that he’s planning on playing the last two weeks of the regular season.
The Lions are already eliminated, but a lot of players are kind of auditioning for the next coaching staff.
Detroit average 23.9 points per game and the total has gone under in seven of their last 8 games played on a Saturday.
Go under as the Bucs don’t need to overdo it.
