I feel comfortable betting Tampa Bay in this one. Tom Brady and the rest of his wide receivers are getting into a groove at the perfect time. Brady has shown that he can still play at a high level and command this Tampa Bay offense.
Any of the rust he has shown over the past couple of games looks like it is completely gone. Now, he is focused and dialed in. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers like a formidable opponent in the NFC South.
Although the Raiders have talent on offense in their own right, you have enough to contend with Tampa Bay? Jacobs and car have made their mark for Las Vegas, and they have provided a level of stability at two positions.
However, I do not see them being able to contend with the Tampa Bay defense. This is nothing against the Raiders, but more of a measure of how good the defense is.
I would expect Tampa Bay to cover the in this one at -5. The Buccaneers have too many weapons and too many veterans with the outcome to go any other way.
