Top Picks Square Off as Bucs Host Titans

Two teams that combined for just four wins and 10 covers a year ago will battle in Tampa Bay on Sunday when the Buccaneers host the Tennessee Titans.

The Bucs and Titans each finished 2-14 last season, and neither team fared much better against the spread. Tampa Bay was 7-9 versus the number and played better following an 0-3 start ATS while Tennessee was an abysmal 3-12-1.

The Titans failed to cover their last six games of 2014 during a 10-game losing streak and went 1-7 straight-up on the road with a 2-6 mark ATS.

One of their two wins surprisingly came in the season opener on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs, and rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota will lead them this year after being selected second overall in the NFL Draft.

Tampa Bay picked quarterback Jameis Winston with the top selection in the draft and hopes he will fare better than last year's free-agent bust Josh McCown, who is now starting for the Cleveland Browns.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Odds at sportsbooks such as Bovada had the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pegged as -2.5-point favorites in this betting matchup. The total, meanwhile, was listed by books like TopBet at 42.5.
