TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS @ LAS VEGAS RAIDERS

The Bucs fresh off their statement win of the season head to Sin City to take on the Raiders who’re coming in fresh off a bye week.

Tampa put a beating on the previously unbeaten Packers last week and whilst the Offense looked really strong it was the defense which impressed me most with their ability to rattle Aaron Rodgers, not only did the defense keep him scoreless through the air but also picked him off twice as well as being the only defense to Sack him multiple times and against the run they were as stout as ever keeping Aaron Jones to 1.5 yards per carry.

The Raiders have been pretty good in their own right so far this season boasting a 3-2 record and went into their bye with huge divisional win against the Chiefs handing them their first loss of the season and Derek Carr taking more risks is allowing the passing game to open up for them although that might be difficult for him against this defense and it’ll be interesting to see if this Raider defense has managed to tighten up against the run as through 5 games they have conceded a TD on the ground in every single one and are up against a runner in Ronald Jones here who is coming off the back of a two TD game and looking good.

PREDICTION: BUCCANEERS 27 โ€“ 21 RAIDERS  

BEST BET: Ronald Jones anytime TD โ€“ 4/5 with Betfair.
