Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+2.5)
Regular season record: 4-6
The Buccaneers could not follow up their 20-6 win over the Tennessee Titans at home in Week 10 with another in Week 11, as they got destroyed by the San Francisco 49ers on the road, 27-14. Bucs quarterback Baker Mayfield passed for 246 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 29/45 completions versus the Niners, while Cade Otton and MikeEvans had 49 and 43 receiving yards, respectively, with the latter catching the only touchdown reception of the contest for Tampa Bay.
Although they are struggling to win games, the Bucs’ offense has serious talent that can’t be underestimated. Evans and Chris Godwin are still dangerous and Otton could be on the rise. The Colts held their last two opponents to only 19 points, but those teams have offenses with bigger problems and more issues than Tampa Bay, which is a perfect 5-0 against the spread in road games this season, thus far.
Betting on the Indianapolis Colts (-2.5)
Regular season record: 5-5
The Colts are looking to extend their win streak to three games when they hit the field in Week 12. Indianapolis is coming off a bye in Week 11 and prior to that, the Colts defeated the Carolina Panthers on the road (27-13) in Week 9 and the New England Patriots (10-6) in Germany in Week 10. S
ay what you want about the quality of their last two opponents, but the Colts have garnered serious momentum off of those victories. So far in the 2023 NFL regular season, the Colts are ninth overall in the league with 24.2 points per game and 14th with 336.1 total yards per contest. Mayfield could find Indianapolis’s defense extra tricky to navigate, as the Colts have an opportunistic stop unit that is tied for 12th in the league with 11 interceptions.
