Betting Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs are home faves per NFL gambling sites. One would expect a veteran team like Tampa Bay to be better prepared to play after its bye week. Especially with the GOAT under center. Instead, head coach Bruce Arians was disappointed with their performance. He called them “very dumb” after the loss. He took some responsibility for not preparing them.
Arians also pointed to Brady’s two interceptions as the quarterback’s fault and not the receivers’. This player-coach relationship will be interesting to watch in the near future. As well as for the rest of the season to see how it affects the team. The NFC postseason race remains open. The only thing that could make things worse is a loss here.

Whether New York Will cover This is easy comes down to the play of quarterback Daniel Jones. He has thrown four touchdown passes and one pick in the team’s three wins. If Jones does not give up the ball, the Giants can cover.
Brady played without wide receiver Antonio Brown and tight end Rob Gronkowski in the loss at Washington. They could miss another game. Mike Evans was targeted only three times and had two catches for 62 yards and a TD. The Bucs can fix this by ensuring he gets the ball more. They play better at home, where they are 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS.
Take Tampa. One is temped to test the Giants thanks to the big spread at NFL gambling sites. But it’s difficult to trust New York these days. The Giants had 247 total yards (98 passing) in their last game.
Only 4.6 yards per play and 16 first downs. It wasn’t dominant. Tampa were out of sorts in their last outing against Washington. The Bucs had 14 first downs and two picks. They held the ball for only 20:52. Expect some adjustments. Tampa should come back with a vengeance.
