The Buffalo Bills have just been punched in the mouth by a division rival last Monday and hope to bounce back right away. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in search of another win to add to their big lead atop the NFC South division. Check out our preview of this Bills-Buccaneers Week 14 matchup below.
Betting Preview for the Buffalo Bills vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers Regular Season Week 14 Game on December 12, 2021
Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa
When: Sunday, December 12, 2021, 4:25 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Buffalo Bills (+3.5)
Regular Season Record: 7-4
The Bills simply got Bill Belichick-ed in Week 13, as they lost to the New England Patriots at home, 14-10. Buffalo had no answer to the Patriots’ rushing attack, which was relentless and likely stunned the Bills for just being the entire offensive game plan of New England. Despite the loss, the Bills remain a force to reckon with. Josh Allen will give the Bills hope against the Buccaneers. After all, Allen is certainly a better quarterback than Washington Football Team signal-caller Taylor Heinicke, who had just recently led his squad to a win over the Buccaneers. The Bills’ defense is also motivated to bounce back against a likely more traditional attack from the Buccaneers. On the season, Buffalo is second in the NFL with 16.3 points allowed per game and tops with 272.3 total yards surrendered per contest.
The Bills are 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games after a loss.
Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.5)
Regular Season Record: 9-3
Tom Brady saw his former team whip the Bills. He will next get his turn in trying to add to the worst of Buffalo, as he and the Buccaneers are looking to extend their win streak to four games. Since losing to Washington in Week 10 on the road, the Bucs have found their groove again. They took down the New York Giants at home in Week 11 then defeated the Indianapolis Colts and the Atlanta Falcons in both on the road in Weeks 12 and 13, respectively. In their 30-17 win over the Falcons, the Bucs leaned on Brady, who passed for 368 yards and four touchdowns with an interception on 38/51 completions. Even with Antonio Brown suspended, Brady won’t have a shortage of weapons downfield, with Chris Godwin and Mike Evans leading Tampa Bay’s receiving corps. Godwin torched Atlanta’s defense last Sunday for 143 receiving yards on 15 catches, while Evans had 99 receiving yards on seven receptions.
The Buccaneers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games versus a team with a winning road record.
The Bills win, 27-24.
