Resurgent Bears Look to Extend Road Dominance over Tampa Bay

Jay Cutler Bears

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to end a dismal six-game straight-up and against the spread losing streak on home turf when they host Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon in an NFL Week 10 matchup at Raymond James Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Buccaneers' last 12 games in November.
  • The Bears are 0-4 SU in their last four games after a win.
  • The total has gone OVER in 26 of the Bears' last 35 games after a win.

The Buccaneers were unable to keep pace with Atlanta's potent offense in last week's 43-28 loss as 4.5-point home underdogs, and have surrendered 34.25 points per game in four home dates this season.  Tampa Bay has also lost three outright as home chalk, and is a dismal 4-10 SU in its past 14 while favored at home.

Buoyed by the return of Cutler under center, the Bears ended a three-game SU and ATS slide in Week 8 with a 20-10 win over Minnesota as 5-point home underdogs. Chicago is 4-2 SU in its past six road dates with Cutler at the helm, all as betting underdogs, but the club has struggled to generate offense this season, scoring 17 or fewer points on six occasions.

Chicago is unbeaten SU and ATS in its past three against the Buccaneers, with Cutler leading the offense in each of those outings. Tampa Bay has failed to top 21 points in its past four home dates with the Bears, forcing the point total UNDER in three of those contests.
