Bucs Having Issues Covering at Home

It’s far from the most attractive matchup on the Week 5 NFL schedule but the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will try to gain some ground in their respective divisions after a pair of 1-3 starts to the season.

Shark Bites
  • The Buccaneers are 2-9 ATS in their past 11 home games.
  • Jacksonville is 0-5 SU in its last 5 games on the road.
  • Bucs QB Jameis Winston is tied for the NFL lead in INTs with seven.

Jacksonville is averaging just 15.5 points per game this season while allowing opposing offenses to score 26.75. Tampa has the exact same points differential but is averaging 18 points on offense and giving up 29.25 defensively.

Tampa Bay, fresh off a 37-23 loss to the Carolina Panthers, will once again be attempting to cover the spread at Raymond James Stadium after failing to do so in two appearances. The Jags are 1-1 ATS on the road so far.

Rookie quarterback Jameis Winston has had his struggles adapting to the NFL. The Florida State product has six touchdowns for 965 yards but has had turnover issues, tossing seven interceptions through four weeks.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Sportsbooks, including Bovada, had set the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as -3-point favorites on the opening line for this contest. The total was hovering around 42 earlier in the week (check for the current over-under lines at MyBookie).
