BookMaker has the Detroit Lions listed as 3-point favorites on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon in week 6 of the NFL season. The teams have split the last ten meetings with both teams going 5-5 while Tampa Bay has won two of the last three games in the series. The Lions are 6-4 ATS in the last ten while the Buccaneers are 2-1 ATS in the last three meetings. Detroit is 4-1 ATS overall, 2-0 ATS on the road, and 3-1 ATS as a favorite this season while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 3-1 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS at home, and 2-1 ATS as an underdog.
Detroit is looking like one of the best teams in the NFC this season while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been a surprise team with Baker Mayfield at quarterback as both teams are in 1
place in their respective divisions. However, the Lions are the better team this season from a talent standpoint which is why I will be taking the money line for the Detroit Lions at -158 when they travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
