The Buccaneers really need a convincing win against the Dolphins.
The Bucs are 3-1 so far on the season, but the games haven’t looked as nice as that line indicates. Even with the rest of the NFC South in shambles, Tampa needs to start winning games in a much more convincing manner if they want to keep their hopes at a repeat Super Bowl alive.
The good news for the Bucs is that they have a very easy schedule coming up. The Dolphins will be without their starting quarterback, and several other teams on the upcoming slate don’t have the firepower to truly test Tampa, even with the depleted secondary.
Still, the Buccaneers don’t want to look too far ahead, as winning this game against Miami and moving to 4-1 needs to be the sole focus for this roster.
Buccaneers vs. Dolphins Odds Week 5
The Buccaneers are currently 10-point favorites over the Dolphins according to WynnBET. The over/under is set at 48 points.
Based on the injuries in Miami right now and their inability to move the ball on offense over the past few weeks, making the Bucs such heavy favorites makes perfect sense.
Buccaneers vs. Dolphins predictions Week 5
The Buccaneers should roll the Dolphins. Miami has next to no offense, and the Bucs already beat a better defense when facing New England. Ten-point favorites feels a little high, especially when considering Tampa’s secondary, but this game should still be a comfortable win for the defending champs.
The Bucs have the talent to be the clear favorites in a game like this, and they need to make sure they don’t play down to the Dolphins if they want to increase their current win streak.
