The under is 8-3 in Buccaneers last 11 games on grass. The under is 5-1 in Titans last 6 games overall. The Buccaneers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Tennessee Titans are going to get the benefit of the doubt here, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are likely going to continue resting the majority of their key roster. The line is the line for a reason. With that said, the Bucs held their own in their preseason opener and probably should have beaten the Dolphins. Kyle Trask picked his spots well and moved the ball, setting the Bucs up time and time again. The Titans defense left a lot to be desired their first time out. I’ll grab the free field goal.
