Online football betting odds show the Tampa Bay Buccaneers heavily favored in NFL odds Week 17 numbers against the Oakland Raiders.
Gamblers that bet on football see that the Bucs are still positioning themselves for the playoffs while the Raiders are as bad as normal.
Online football betting stats show that Oakland and Tampa Bay don’t play that often. Their last meeting was in 2004 as the Raiders won 30-20 at home as online football betting stats show. Online football betting statistics tell us that the only other meeting this decade was in Super Bowl XXXVII as the Bucs routed the Raiders 48-21.
The Bucs have been led this season by a defense that has ranked in the Top 10 in yards allowed as online football betting numbers show. The offense has been efficient enough to put points on the board and Tampa has shown flashes of excellence that excite those who bet on football.
Most gamblers that look at online football betting odds believe the Bucs should have more than enough for a pitiful Raiders team. Oakland ranks right near the bottom of the NFL in offense as online football betting has it while the defense is slightly better ranking in the bottom third of the league. Gamblers that bet on football really don’t want any part of an Oakland team that struggles to score and remain competitive. Online football betting information shows that the Raiders have a quarterback in JaMarcus Russell who doesn’t look ready for the NFL, no running game and no receivers that can make plays.
Online football betting statistics show that Tampa Bay has a solid running game led by Warrick Dunn and a good passing attack with Jeff Garcia. Antonio Bryant has emerged at wide receiver and the Bucs can hit some big plays.
Looking at the online football betting total we see that Oakland has gone under the total about 60% of the time on the road since 2005. Gamblers that bet on football totals know that Tampa Bay has been an okay under team at home during that same time period, going under about 55% of the time.
