Oakland Raiders Will Defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The NFL Lock of the week will present the best bet of the week, in fact the game is such a good bet it is the Lock of the Week. This week the lock of the week in is in the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are off one of the best wins of the season.
The Bucs upset the Minnesota Vikings and played seemingly flawless football on a Thursday night football game. Rookie running back Doug Martin had a coming out party putting up big numbers in front of a national audience. Now going up against the silver and black they seem like a pretty good bet, right?
The Raiders are going to win this game and it’s going to be easy. The Raiders are starting to put everything together at the right time and are winning ball games. The defense is putting up some big hits and has injured the starting quarterback in the last two games that they have played so Josh Freeman should be careful.
The Buccaneers are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a losing home record and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
The home team is 4-1 against the number in the last five meetings and the Black Hole can be a very difficult place for any team to play.
Carson Palmer and his offense are ready to go and they will be able to execute and win big against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The lock of the week is the Oakland Raiders -1.5.
