Bucs vs. Cardinals Pick
Will the Buccaneers and the Cardinals light up the scoreboard on Sunday when the two teams clash at 4:05PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cardinals are 7-point home favorites versus the Bucs, while the over/under currently sits at 50 points. Neither the total nor the side have budged since the opening numbers were posted by oddsmakers.
TAMPA BAY: The Buccaneers upset the Falcons 31-24 as a 2.5-point road underdog in Atlanta last Sunday. Jameis Winston lit up the Falcons for 281 yards and four touchdowns with one interception on 23-of-32 pass attempts. Mike Evans, Charles Sims, Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers caught the touchdown passes. Evans also turned five receptions into 99 yards and the one score.
ARIZONA: The Cardinals lost outright 23-21 as a 9-point home favorite to the Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Carson Palmer was 24-of-37 for 271 yards with two touchdowns while David Johnson rushed 89 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. Larry Fitzgerald also went off for 81 yards and two touchdowns on eight receptions.
OUR PICK: The Buccaneers beat the Falcons last week and completely dominated Atlanta from a run defense standpoint, but Tampa Bay is thin in the secondary. After Palmer and some of his targets were off last week in the loss to New England, look for the Cardinals’ offense to look sharper on Sunday. The over is 4-0 in the Buccaneers’ last four games overall and 4-1 in their last five road games. The over is also 8-3 in the Cardinals’ last 11 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in his previous game.
