Betting Preview for the Tennessee Titans vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preseason Week 2 Game on August 21, 2021
Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa
When: Saturday, August 21, 2021, 7:30 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NFL Network
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (odds)
Regular Season Record: 1-0
Pass rushing was a major weak point for the Titans last season when they ranked just 29th in the league with just a 3.54 defensive sacks percentage. Based on their first game of the 2021 NFL preseason, it appears that it’s going to be a whole lot better for the Titans in that area this season. Tennessee basically shut down the Atlanta Falcons’ offense in a 23-3 road win last week. The Titans recorded five sacks for a loss of 31 yards on the part of the Falcons and also had an interception. Rookie linebacker Rashad Weaver finished the game with three total tackles and 1.5 sacks, while Ryatt Ray had seven total tackles and 1.5 sacks. Those two will be a problem for Tampa Bay’s offensive line that got blown up in Week 1 of the preseason.
The Titans are 2-0 against the spread in their last two preseason games.
Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (odds)
Regular Season Record: 0-1
Sure, the Bucs lost last week to the Cincinnati Bengals, 19-14, but Tampa Bay fans have got to love the job done by their team on defense. The Buccaneers forced four turnovers (two fumble recoveries and two interceptions) and limited Cincy to just 6 of 14 on third-down conversions. Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl last season thanks in large part to its defense, so it’s good to know for the team that its stop unit is still in top shape, even if it’s just the preseason. As for the offense, Kyle Trask struggled mightily in his pro debut, connecting on just 4 of 15 passes for 35 yards. It could get better for him, though. Tennessee’s defense is a threat but it also got some injuries last week, so it’s possible that the Titans might not be as effective on that end of the ball this coming Saturday.
The Bucs are 2-1 against the spread in their last three games in the preseason.
The Titans win, 17-10.
