Is Tampa Bay For Real?
The Buccaneers are undefeated and they beat two very good teams in the Saints and the Eagles. Ryan Fitzpatrick is looking great under center and is airing it out against solid defenses. The Steelers defense got torched against the Chiefs last week, so it is easy to see why people are high on the Bucs. The Buccaneers are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) and 4-1 straight up (SU) in the five games started by Ryan Fitzpatrick since the start of last season. The Buccaneers lead the NFL with 19 pass completions gaining at least 15 yards. That includes five for touchdowns, tied with Kansas City for most in the league. Now they face a Steelers team that limps into this prime time special.
Are the Steelers done?
The Steelers have issues, Bell is out, Brown is complaining and Big Ben is awful on the road. So is this a chance for the Steelers to prove that they are a team that could still compete and make a run to the playoffs? The public is not betting on the Steelers in this game with 60% of the wagers coming in on the Home team in this game. That shows that the world is betting on the Bucs and giving up on the Steelers. Thatâ€™s music to our ears.
Steelers vs Buccaneers Predictions
Antonio Brown, who made nine catches in each of the first two contests, has 70 receptions and seven TDs in his last eight games versus NFC opponents. Big Ben will feed his best players and against a beatable Bucs defense this will lead to a big day. The Steelers are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game and 23-9-2 ATS in their last 34 road games against a team with a winning home record. The Steelers rebound well after a loss with a 4-0 ATS record. The Buccaneers are a very good team, but the Steelers are better and it will show on Monday night.
