Broncos vs. Buccaneers Pick
Will the Denver Broncos put on another offensive showcase this Sunday when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 4:05PM ET?
According to the oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Broncos are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -3 points against the Bucs. The over/under total for the game is listed at 43 points. Denver has won the last three meetings with the Bucs and the two are 3-1 with the under in their last four meetings.
Despite having one of the best defenses in the NFL, the Broncos have hit the over in all three games this season following a 29-17 win over the Bengals last week on the road. Denver is giving up just 19 points and 326.7 yards per game during this 3-0 start. The defense has had to be strong to help Trevor Siemian get comfortable in his starting QB role. He had a breakout game last week, throwing for 312 yards and four touchdowns against the Bengals, getting both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders over 100 yards. The offense is now averaging 28 points and 363 yards per game.
Tampa Bay is off to a 1-2 start following a 37-32 loss to the Rams at home last week. Tampa is 2-1 with the over. The Bucs are putting up 395.7 yards per game but averaging only 23.3 points while the defense is giving up 33.7 points per game while allowing just 377 yards per contest. After a strong first game, Jameis Winston has struggled the last two weeks, with five touchdowns and five interceptions. The loss of Doug Martin in the backfield to an injury has really seemed to make Tampa a one-dimensional offense.
Denver should be able to build on its offensive output last week against Tampa this week. The real question is can the Bucs score enough to hit the over? Considering Denver has hit the over in all three games, I think we can expect to see the Bucs get some points, even if it is in garbage time. I like the over to hit here.
