A well-rested Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are coming off a bye in Week 7, will face off with the rejuvenated Tennessee Titans in Nashville this coming Sunday. The Bucs have lost their last two games and are eyeing to make the race to the top of the NFC South even more interesting with a win over the Titans, whose change under center paid dividends in Week 7.
Betting Preview for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Tennessee Titans NFL Regular Season Week 8 Game on October 27, 2019
Where: Nissan Stadium, Nashville
When: Sunday, October 27, 2019, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-4)
Jameis Winston didn’t help his campaign for a new contract with the Bucs with his performance in Week 6’s 37-26 loss in London to the Carolina Panthers. While Winston racked up a total of 400 passing yards and a touchdown, he threw five interceptions and completed just 30 of 54 passes. Granted that the Panthers’ defense has been solid for the most part of the season, no NFL quarterback should still be tossing that many picks in a single game. Winston will have to be more disciplined and his decisions quicker. In any case, Winston has arguably the best 1-2 wide receiver tandem in the league right now in Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. Godwin had 151 receiving yards on 10 receptions against the Panthers, while Evans had 96 receiving yards on nine catches and a team-high 17 targets. Godwin blew up for 121 receiving yards and a touchdown on eight catches in Week 2’s 20-14 road win over Carolina.
The Bucs are 3-1-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five road games.
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (3-4)
It looks like all the Titans needed was a dose of the Ryan Tannehill experience. In his first start for the Titans, replacing Marcus Mariota, Tannehill led Tennessee tot a 23-20 win at home over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8. Tannehill passed for 312 yards and two touchdowns with an interception while completing 23 of 29 passes. Derrick Henry also rumbled for 90 rushing yards and a score on 22 carries. If Henry could be more efficient with his rushing attempts, the pressure will be lesser on the Titans’ passing attack that is just 27th in the NFL with 204.6 passing yards per game. Tennessee is eighth in the league in rushing play percentage but is only 24th in rushing yards per carry. The Bucs have the toughest run defense in the NFL on paper, so a nice balance on offense is needed by the Titans to throw off Tampa Bay’s stop unit that is vulnerable against the pass. Tampa Bay is last overall with 304.5 passing yards allowed per game.
The Bucs win, 27-21.
