On Sunday the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face off against the Seattle Seahawks in a game between two teams at opposite ends of the NFC. 

Odds Analysis: Seattle opened as a 6-point favorite, although that line had moved to 6.5 by Monday night and may close at a full TD or higher. The Seahawks have covered just one of their last eight as favorites (0-5 ATS as home chalk) and only one of their six wins this year has come by more than a major.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +5

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers come into this matchup with a 2-5 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent road game against the Tennessee Titans, 27-23. QB Jameis Winston had an inconsistent game through the air for Tampa Bay as he connected on 21 of his 43 pass attempts for 301 yards, 2 TDs, and 2 interceptions.

Wide receiver Mike Evans continued his productive season while catching 11 passes for 198 yards and 2 touchdowns. Jameis Winston was also the team's leading rusher as he ran the ball 8 times for 53 yards.

Tampa Bay is mired in a three-game slide and quarterback Jameis Winston has thrown seven interceptions in the past two games to sabotage performances of 400 and 301 yards. Wilson has been able to turn water into wine at the quarterback position, but without Carson successfully chewing up grass, he’s going to have to play hero ball on Sunday. the interceptions and fumbles continue to put the Tampa Bay defense in a tough spot.

Despite ranking first in the NFL against the run and 18th in total yards, the Bucs have allowed the third-most points as they are often forced to defend a short field. The OVER has now cashed in 16 of the Bucs’ last 21 road contests.

Buccaneers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game. Buccaneers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games on field turf.
