Malik Willis will be key for Titans this week. Buccaneers vs Titans picks and odds

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 1-6 SU and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against the Tennessee Titans but are still a strong pick if you’re pondering your Buccaneers vs Titans prediction. The UNDER has hit in five of the Titans’ last seven games, which speaks to their offensive frailties and might allow the Buccaneers to take this game by a big margin.

Buccaneers vs Titans Odds & Analysis

Opening Odds 

The Buccaneers are expected to win the game by two points according to our Buccaneers vs Titans prediction, but the spread suggests otherwise with Tennessee the opening 2.5-point favorite. This could be because the Buccaneers are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games but 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against Tennessee. The total opened at 41.5 and has seen a big decline down to around 38.5. The total has gone UNDER in five of the Titans’ last seven games. Tennessee averaged 24.6 points per game in the 2021 season to rank 14th in the NFL.

Will Tom Brady’s Absence Make A Difference To The Buccaneers?

The Buccaneers themselves say no while the rest of the world watches with intrigue as the 45-year-old star takes a 10-day break for personal reasons. Brady left training camp last week and will miss Saturday’s game; given that he’s still one of the favorites to win MVP this season, we’ll take the Bucs’ word for it.

During their loss to the Dolphins last weekend, they still managed to boss most of the stats, finishing with 389 total yards despite resting a lot of their big guns. We expect some of them to trickle back into play against the Titans and reckon that should be enough to earn the victory. As far as a Buccaneers vs Titans prediction goes, we expect the total to go OVER as it has in six of the last seven games that the Buccaneers have played on the road against the Titans.

The Titans Are Getting Set To Cut Their Roster

The Titans you knew last week and the Titans you’ll see after this game will be different, and while that won’t have a significant impact on the Buccaneers vs Titans prediction directly, it might lead to more spirited individual performances this weekend. On Tuesday, the Titans cut their roster down to 85 from 90, and that number will hit 80 on the Monday after the game.

For some players, this weekend could be make-or-break. The Titans are coming off a 23-10 defeat against the Ravens and reports suggest their offense has had some bad training sessions, particularly the wide receivers in one-on-one matchups. So keep an eye on that department especially as they look to halt a trend that has seen the UNDER hit in their last five home games.

Buccaneers vs Titans Pick & Insights

Buccaneers: Keys To Cover

By all indications, Byron Leftwich will be taking charge of all offense this season for the Buccaneers and his presence could fuel a well-oiled scoring machine even in Brady’s absence. Should Logan Hall and Joe Tryon-Shoyinka be involved on the defensive front, the Buccaneers should be able to ensure a comfortable cover.

Titans: Keys To Cover

In his debut, Malik Willis scored the Titans’ only touchdown but was also taken off in what seemed like a tough-love move by coach Mike Vrabel. He might be the key to covering the spread for a Titans outfit that is shaky on both offense and defense at the moment.
