The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a bye week and look for a win after splitting their last four games. The Las Vegas Raiders have split their last eight home games. Derek Carr is completing 73.1 percent of his passes for 1,442 yards, 11 touchdowns and one interception. Carr has two or more touchdown passes in five of his last nine games.

The Buccaneers are 1-5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite. The Raiders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 15-5 in Buccaneers last 20 games overall. The over is 4-0-1 in Raiders last 5 games overall. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are starting to find their offensive groove, as they've scored 38 points in two of their last three games. The Las Vegas Raiders have had an extra week to prepare for this game and are coming off a contest where they outscored the Chiefs on the road. The issue in this game is that the Bucs are the best defense in the NFL at stopping the run, allowing an average of 64.3 rushing yards per contest. If the Bucs can slowdown Jacobs, Carr is going to be asked to do a lot of the heavy lifting, and I'm just not confident in him outperforming Brady in this spot. The Raiders look better than most people thought they would, but the Bucs and the cheap line feels like the way to go here.
Give me the Buccaneers and the low line.
