Tampa Bay at Pittsburgh

1.5 units on Game Total UNDER 37.5 -105 (risk 1.5 to return 2.93)  RESULT: LOSS

Tampa Bay is hoping Bruce Arians can get the best out of Jameis Winston unlike Dirk Koetter, who is gone after three seasons. The pressure on Winston should ease a little as Arians likes to get the running game going first to set up the passing plays. Todd Bowles is back as an assistant after four years as head coach with the Jets and he'll take over as defensive coordinator for the Buccaneers, who still have a decent front seven, but need help in the secondary. Blaine Gabbert is Winston's backup and he has started 48 games in his career with four different teams and most recently he played in eight games for Tennessee in 2018 and completed 61-of-101 for 626 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions. Next is Ryan Griffin, whose career has consisted of injuries and practice squads and undrafted rookie free agent Nick Fitzgerald out of Mississippi State. Pittsburgh will be without Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell which may hurt the Steelers offensively, but they do rid themselves of some headaches. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 5,129 passing yards and 34 touchdowns, but he was also picked off 16 times. The Steelers defense still is formidable and could be improved with the free-agent signings of defensive back Steven Nelson and linebacker Mark Barron. The backup QBs are Mason Rudolph, Joshua Dobbs and Devlin Hodges. Rudolph did not get into any games in 2018 while Dobbs did and completed 6-of-12 for 43 yards with no TDs and an interception.  Hodges is a rookie out of Samford. Mike Tomlin is 31-19 UNDER in preseason play and 8-4 UNDER the last three years. Also, Pittsburgh is 10-3 UNDER in Game 1 of the preseason the last 13 seasons. Take the UNDER.
