Tampa Bay at Tennessee

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 41 -105 (risk 1 to return 1.95)  RESULT: LOSS

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a strong defensive line and upgraded the secondary in the offseason. The defensive improvement showed in the preseason opener, winning at Miami with a pick, two sacks, while holding the Dolphins to 2-of-12 on third down. The new-look offensive line still has a ways to go, however, with just 73 yards rushing averaging 2.6 yards per carry. The offense has scored 24, 12, 13, 9, 10 and 13 points its last six preseason games (5-1 UNDER). They head to Tennessee, a team with a new head coach in former defensive star Mike Vrabel. The offense is being careful with QB Marcus Mariota returning from a serious injury and has Blaine Gabbert and rookie Luke Falk in reserve. Mariota threw only three passes last week. The new-look offense was 4-of-12 on third down under first-year offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur. The defense, though, is ahead of the offense, holding Green Bay to 2.8 yards per rush while getting three sacks. The Titans have averaged 13.2 points per game in their last five preseason contests and this total is too high. Take the UNDER here.
