It is not surprising to see the Ravens at 7-3 but the Bucs continue to impress this season and they are also 7-3 on the season. The Ravens are laying just over a touchdown in NFL betting in this contest.
The Bucs are doing so well that the NFL has moved the start time of this game to the afternoon so FOX can show the game to most of the country as a late game. Tampa Bay continues to get little respect from the odds makers as they are 7.5 point underdogs at Sbg global. The total on the game is 40.5.
Tampa Bay 7-3 SU, 7-3 ATS
The Bucs continue to do a lot of things right. They were extremely impressive this past week winning on the road at San Francisco. Winning on the road is never easy but the Bucs dominated the 49ers in every phase of the game. Doing so at Baltimore will not be as easy as the Ravens are very good on both sides of the ball. Tampa is an exciting young team though with Josh Freeman at quarterback and Mike Williams at receiver. And they proved last week they also have a defense as they shut out the 49ers.
Baltimore 7-3 SU, 5-4-1 ATS
The Ravens have the same straight up record as the Bucs but they have not been quite as successful against the spread. Baltimore has a top 10 defense but their offense is sometimes inconsistent. The Ravens won easily last week against the Panthers but they are the worst team in the NFL. This should be a much better test against an exciting young Tampa Bay squad.
