Expert Pick #1 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers -3 @-120
Tom Brady and the lads have been in a much better form lately, and I expect them to keep up the pace. The margin is not set too high, and I believe the hosts can cover it. I’m taking Tampa Bay ATS as my first pick for this matchup.
Expert Pick #2 – Under 53 @-110
Although both teams have been pretty productive this season, the Under is my choice for the second bet. It cashed in four of the last six Bills games, while five out of the previous Bucs’ seven matches stayed under the margin. Give me the Under as the second bet.
Expert Pick #3 – Bills Under 24.5 @-120
The Bills haven’t scored more than 17 points in the previous three matches in Tampa, and going to this one, I believe it shouldn’t be much different. The odds are pretty good for the margin given, and I’m going to back this selection as my third pick.
