Football Betting: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Detroit Lions

Football betting Sunday features a playoff contender against a winless team as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to Detroit to take on the Lions.

Football betting fans got tremendous value out of Tampa Bay at the start of the NFL football betting season as the Bucs beat the NFL betting lines 5 straight weeks after losing their opener but since that time their football betting value has plummeted.

Tampa Bay halted a 3-game losing streak against the football betting spread last week in a 19-13 home win over Minnesota as 4.5-point chalks. Overall Tampa Bay is 7-3 straight up and 6-4 against the football betting line. The Bucs are 2-3 against the football betting odds in road action.

Tampa Bay has gone under the football betting total 6 out of 10 games but has gone over the football betting over/under in 3 out of 5 road games. Tampa Bay is ranked 9th on offense while ranking 5th overall on the football betting defensive stat charts. The Detroit Lions are 0-10 straight up but 4-6 against the NFL betting lines.

In a classic case study of NFL football betting board value Detroit has actually beaten the football betting line in 4 of their last 6 games! This demonstrates the more unappealing a team is to the general football betting public, the more valuable they become on the football betting board.

Last week Detroit lost at Carolina 22-31 but covered the football betting odds as 14-point dogs. Detroit has gone over the football betting total 6-3-1this season with a 2-1-1 over mark at home against the football betting over/unders. Detroit is 0-4 against the football betting odds in home action this year.

The Lions are ranked 28th overall on offense while ranking 31st on the football betting defensive stat charts. Detroit is 5-0 against the football betting odds in their last 5 games against Tampa Bay. The two teams have gone under the football betting total in 4 of their last 5 head to head meetings.
