Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.0)
Regular Season Record: 5-5
The Buccaneers cooled off Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10, scoring a 21-16 over Pete Carroll’s team in Munich. Prior to that, Tampa Bay downed the Los Angeles Rams at home, 16-13. Tampa Bay’s defense is getting it together it seems, but there’s still a lot to be desired from their offense. Brady passed for 258 yards and two touchdowns with an interception on 22/29 completions versus the Seahawks. But it’s rookie running back Rachaad White who could be the top player to watch for Tampa. White led the Bucs with 105 yards on 22 carries in his breakout performance in Week 10. The Browns’ defense against the run is rating poorly, so look for the Bucs’ ground attack to play a huge role anew to complement their pass-heavy attack. So far this season, the Buccaneers are third in points allowed per game (18.0) and fourth with 269.8 passing yards per contest.
Betting on the Cleveland Browns (+3.0)
Regular Season Record: 3-7
The Browns are still going to go with Jacoby Brissett as Deshaun Watson continues to incubate. Brissett played well in Week 11, albeit in a 31-23 road loss to the Buffalo Bills in Detroit. Brissett passed for 324 yards and three touchdowns with an interception on 28/41 completions. He also rushed for 29 yards on seven carries. Meanwhile, wide receiver Amari Cooper posted 113 receiving yards and two touchdowns on eight catches and 12 targets. Cooper can be a huge headache against any team, especially with the form he is in right now. Cooper has 113 or more receiving yards in two of his last three games, collecting three touchdown catches in the process.
The Over is 4-0-1 in the Browns’ last five home games.
The Buccaneers win, 24-23.
