Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Tennessee Titans Odds


Tampa Bay has never won at Tennessee and never won on the road in this matchup even when the Titans were the old Houston Oilers (since 1980).

But the Buccaneers are small road underdogs here as they visit the mercurial Titans. Tennessee typically beats bad teams and loses to good ones, so take that into consideration whether to back the Bucs (riding a 4-game losing skid against tough foes).

Interestingly, Tampa Bay is 11-2 ATS in their past 13 games as a road underdog.
