Tampa Bay has had a pretty successful season so far, outside of a few bad games. The Buccaneers had a few solid wins going over the Packers, Raiders and Giants before experiencing their worst outing of the year last weekend. That one ended up as a 38-3 beatdown courtesy of the Saints.
In the loss to New Orleans, Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady posted 209 yards with zero touchdowns and three interceptions, while Mike Evans led the receivers with four catches on 64 yards. Ronald Jones led a near-nonexistent rush with nine yards on three carries.
Over on the Panthers side, they started out the year at 3-2 and looked like they’d be okay. Carolina promptly went on a four-game losing streak after that, falling to the Bears, Saints Falcons and Chiefs. The KC game was close at 33-31, but the Panthers couldn’t finish it off.
In the loss to the Chiefs, Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater put up 310 yards with two touchdowns, while Christian McCaffrey managed 69 yards and a touchdown rushing. Curtis Samuel had nine catches for 105 yards and a touchdown to lead the Carolina receivers.
The Buccaneers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as a road favorite and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 versus the NFC. Tampa Bay is 2-6 ATS in their last eight games versus the NFC South and 1-4 ATS in their last five games as a favorite.
Meanwhile, the Panthers are 5-0 ATS in their last five games as an underdog and 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall. Carolina is 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 versus the NFC and 3-7 in their last 10 games in Week 10.
PICK: I’m going with Tampa Bay here. It’s a little strange picking Brady and the gang after their ugly showing against the Saints, but Carolina is a little more manageable than New Orleans and likely won’t be able to repeat the defensive lockdown. Tampa has posted 23 or more points in seven of their nine games, so they should be able to get enough offense going to bang out a cover in this one.
