Tampa Bay at Buffalo

1.5 units on Game Total OVER 41.5 -110 (risk 1.5 to return 2.86) RESULT: LOSS
This is a low total on the board for week three. There will be beautiful weather in Buffalo this weekend with little wind. Don't give up on this Tampa Bay offense, as new offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford has a terrific offensive resume. He has two decent QBs in Mike Glennon and Josh McCown, and the Bucs and Bears have the tallest wide receiver corps in the NFL. Last Saturday night the Bucs showed off one of the scheme's primary characteristics when quarterback Josh McCown spent the entire first quarter engineering a no-huddle attack. Tampa Bay drafted WRs Mike Evans and Robert Herron along with TE Austin Sefarian-Jenkins to complement star receiver Vincent Jackson and starting QB Josh McCown has played effectively in the preseason. Now they have more time to show the no-huddle against a Buffalo defense that has allowed 18 and 20 points the last two games (13 in the first quarter last week). The Buffalo Bills have Robert Woods and former Buccaneers WR Mike Williams. They also are running the no-huddle, so look for more offense than oddsmakers expect. Play the OVER.
