Tennessee at Tampa Bay

2 units on Tennessee (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
Mike Munchak took over the sidelines for Tennessee last season and won three of the four games played in the preseason. The tone was set a week ago when Matt Hasselback dropped back on the first play from scrimmage and proceeded to throw a pick-6, and the Titans never seemed to recover. It was like a deja vu experience for Tennessee and coach Munchak. In their only preseason loss last year, the Titans were on defense first as the St. Louis Rams threw an 83 yard TD pass on their first play from scrimmage, and the Titans couldn't recover. Munchak has displayed the willingness, and need to win here. He won all of the other three games from a year ago. Greg Schiano got the monkey off his back early by winning game one vs. in-state rival Miami, and would expect the Buccaneers to take a breath here. Home favorites in the preseason off a win fail to cover the spread about 70% of the time. Play on Tennessee on the moneyline.
