Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-8.0)
Regular Season Record: 3-2
Tom Brady passed for 351 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 35/52 competitions versus Atlanta. Leonard Fournette did pretty much everything for the Buccaneers, as he led the team with 56 rushing yards and a rushing score while also coming up with a game-high 83 receiving yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions and 11 targets. Despite the underwhelming way they played against Atlanta, the Buccaneers still have plenty of weapons with a decided superior quarterback on Sunday against the struggling Steelers, who just can’t seem to do anything right lately.
The Buccaneers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games.
Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers (+8.0)
Regular Season Record: 1-4
The Steelers still look committed to starting Kenny Pickett going forward, so expect the rookie to be under center again this coming Sunday against the Buccaneers. Pickett had 327 passing yards and an interception with zero touchdowns on 34/52 completions against the Bills, but at least he did not shy away from making throws. What the Steelers need is for Najee Harris to really start producing quality numbers. Harris only had 20 rushing yards on 11 carries in Week 5. Atlanta sort of exposed the Buccaneers in Week 5, so maybe Pittsburgh has a surprise up its sleeves on Sunday.
The Steelers are Steelers are 13-5 against the spread in their last 18 games in October.
The Buccaneers win, 27-17.
