Why Bet The Tampa Bay Buccaneers To Beat The Cardinals
Tampa Bay is not playing around. HC Lovie Smith and OC Dirk Koetter opened the entire playbook to sophomore QB Jameis Winston and he did the rest. The Bucs were thoroughly embarrassed the Falcons D in Atlanta by winning the game, 31-24.
Jameis Winston threw for 23-33 for 281 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception.
Making life easy for Winston are his playmakers. WR Mike Evans proved to be unstoppable with five receptions, 99 yards, and one score. He has led the Buccaneers in receiving yards since Winston has come into the league.
The Bucs are threat in the NFC South. Watch out. The Buccaneers are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game, and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 2.
Why Bet The Arizona Cardinals To Beat The Buccaneers
The Cardinals were flat during their Sunday Night loss to the Pats. The surprising loss to Brady’s backup has put this team in a bad mood and I
pity the foolthe Bucks.
Arizona had the second best scoring offense in the NFL last season. QB Carson Palmer had a career year with 4671 yards, 35 TDs and 11 INTs. Last week Palmer’s outing was average for a QB of his calibre. He threw 24/37 for 271 yards and 2 TDs. He won’t make the same mistake twice.
The Cards D also needs to make timely stops. Last week they sacked Garoppolo twice, but did not force any mistakes. They will correct that this week.
