NFL Betting Preview
Seattle Seahawks (1-4) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-2)
Sunday, 8:20 pm Eastern – CBS
SBG Global Opening Line: Buccaneers – 10.5 , Total 38
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to add to the misery of the Seattle Seahawks season as they host them on Sunday night. The Seahawks have done very little right this season and will be missing quarterback Matt Hasselbeck again on Sunday. The Bucs are also missing their starting quarterback but Jeff Garcia was the starter last season and the Bucs didn’t miss a beat last week with Garcia at the helm. “This is just one game and we don’t know what’s going to happen next,” Garcia said, “But it felt great to be playing again. If we can just build on these things, we have a lot of good things to look forward to.” SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Buccaneers at Home.
The Bucs have been superb at home this season, outscoring their opponents by a combined score of 81-33. The Bucs have not had much success at home against Seattle though, losing all four meetings. Tampa is actually 1-7 all-time against the Seahawks. This is not the same Seattle team though. Hasselbeck is out and the defense is a disgrace, ranking 27th in the league. The offense is no better, especially without Hasselbeck, as the passing game is next to last in the NFL. “We don’t have the ability right now like we have had in the past to overcome (things),” head coach Mike Holmgren said. “It’s tough right now … It is a test of sorts, you know, we are not used to this. But here were are … And we still have a lot of games to play. So we have to start dealing with that.”
