Buffalo Bills At Tampa Bay Buccaneers Picks & Betting Predictions
For a team that’s situated so far north, there doesn’t seem to be an NFL club going south faster than the Buffalo Bills. Seen by many betting apps as a Super Bowl favorite, the erratic 7-5 Bills might end up in the fight of their lives just to make it to the postseason.
Even the oddsmakers are losing faith in Buffalo. Heading to Tampa Bay on Sunday to face the reigning Super Bowl champion Buccaneers (9-3), the Bills are three-point road underdogs in the NFL picks.
Take a look at Bills vs. Buccaneers odds, injury report, betting lines and more.
Bills vs Buccaneers Key Matchups
Tom Brady vs The Bills: Welcome to Buffalo’s nightmare, the sequel. The Bills lost 14-10 last week to the New England Patriots. They’re now 4-16 in their last 20 games against the Pats. This week, it’s Buccaneers QB Tom Brady on the other side of the ball. Brady is 32-3 all-time vs Buffalo.
