Cardinals Look to Revive Misfiring Offense in Home Date with Tampa Bay

The Arizona Cardinals will try to reward loyal sports bettors with their first ATS win of the season on Sunday, when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an NFL Week 6 matchup at University of Phoenix Stadium. Last week’s 34-7 loss to Philadelphia as 6-point road underdogs dropped the Cardinals to 2-3 SU and 0-5 ATS while the Buccaneers look to rebound following a 19-14 loss to New England as 3.5-point home underdogs.

Shark Bites
  • The Buccaneers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against the Cardinals.
  • The Cardinals are 23-8-1 SU in their last 32 games at home.
  • The Buccaneers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games on the road after consecutive home games.

The Cardinals return home searching for an end to their offensive woes that have limited them to a paltry 14.5 points per game over their past four outings, resulting in a 4-0 run for the UNDER in totals betting. The total has also regularly finished UNDER in Arizona home contests, going 11-3 over the club’s past 14.

The Buccaneers travel to the desert riding a three-game SU road losing streak, including a lopsided 34-17 loss at Minnesota in a Week 3 matchup pegged as a pick’em. Tampa Bay has otherwise done well containing opposing offenses, surrendering just 17 ppg in their three other outings this season, and are a respectable 5-2 ATS over their past seven road dates.

Arizona dominated in a home date with the Buccaneers last season, tallying a 40-7 win as 7-point home chalk in its second straight victory over Tampa Bay. The Cardinals have also limited Tampa Bay to 10 or fewer points in five of their past eight meetings, while the UNDER has prevailed in eight of their past 10.
