    Shark Bites

    • The Buccaneers are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games on the road in December.
    • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Buccaneers' last 11 games on the road.

    The Rams have been one of the top UNDER teams in the NFL this season due largely due to an inefficient offense. The OVER/UNDER has gone 3-10 in the Rams’ 2015 campaign.

    With the eyes of the nation squarely upon them, St. Louis has been a terrible bet when appearing on Thursday Night Football. The Rams are 1-6 ATS in their prior seven Thursday affairs.
