Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Las Vegas Raiders News & Picks
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Buccaneers are full of adrenaline following a 38-10 beatdown of the Packers in Week 6. Tampa Bay is starting to click, and they appear to be a solid team on both sides of the ball. However, adrenaline wears off, and Las Vegas healed up and is ready to go after resting during its bye week. The last time the Raiders took the field, they defeated the reigning world champions at Arrowhead. We cannot overlook Las Vegas in this game.
If RB Josh Jacobs can find a way to bash his way past the Buccaneers’ stonewall rushing defense, then QB Derek Carr’s odds of working his magic downfield increase. You can be sure that Raiders’ head coach Jon Gruden wants this victory more than life itself, so Las Vegas will be pulling out all the stops. The Raiders fall just short of the upset, but win ATS. Buccaneers 24, Raiders 23
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sent a message with their 38-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Brady regained some confidence after throwing two touchdown passes and no interceptions. RB Ronald Jones played his best game so far with 113 yards and 2 touchdowns, and Rob Gronkowski revived with 5 receptions, 78 yards and 1 touchdown.
The Buccaneers scored 38 points in a quiet day for Mike Evans and Chris Goodwin. The Bucs average 29.5 points per game and the total has gone over in seven of Tampa Bay’s last ten games on the road.
The Las Vegas Raiders come from their bye week. However, they are in disarray as their entire offensive line has been placed on the Reserve/Covid-19 list.
Rookie WR Henry Ruggs and TE Darren Waller should be at 100% and that could mean troubles for Tampa Bay’s defense.
The Raiders average 30.2 points per game and the total has gone over in their last five games. Go over in a back and forth game.
