The Buccaneers will be looking for their fourth straight win as they take on the injury riddled Detroit Lions. Here are both betting advice and predictions.
In Week 15, the rejuvenated Tampa Bay Buccaneers team will be flying out to Detroit this weekend to take on the Lions in a battle at Ford Field. Tampa Bay, riding hot behind a three-game winning streak, looks to take their high-powered, Bruce Arians’-led offense against struggling Lions defense.
Detroit, unfortunately, is on the back end of a six-game loosing streak, most recently a beat down against division foe, Minnesota Vikings. Tampa Bay has come on strong down the stretch, going 4-3 both against the spread and straight up.
Jameis Winston, who has taken coach Arians “no risk it, no biscuit” approach literally this season, is now in the front running to finish the year leading the NFL in both passing yards and interceptions. Matt Patricia and the Lions defense will look to exploit that at home this Sunday.
Speaking of, Detroit (3-9-1 straight up) themselves have been lacking in the defensive department themselves, currently ranked 30th overall out of 32 teams. If anything screams out to me about this game, it’s one word: shootout. Take the Over/47.5 like your life depends on it folks! But more on that later, lets take a look at some trends.
