Against The Spread Pick
The San Francisco 49ers are ready for a new year of football as they begin the season heading to Florida to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Lines originally opened up in favor of Tampa Bay (-2), but now this game is practically a pick-em. Sharp money has been put on the 49ers, mainly due to a healthy and ready quarterback in Jimmy Garropollo and third-year coach Kyle Shanahan ready to unleash his new offense. However, do not underestimate the power of Bucs’ head coach Bruce Arians. The veteran loves to start hot and it shows in his past three years of coaching. He holds a 7-2 SU record and 8-1 ATS record in the past three years during the first three home games of the season. The Buccaneers are ready to throw all day on the 49ers and will shock the world once again by taking down another potential playoff team in Week 1. The Buccaneers are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall as well as 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NFC.
Over Under Pick
Right now, the total is sitting at 50 and that is the perfect time to hit it for the Under. The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Bucs’ last 19 games vs the Niners. I do expect Winston and company to score a good amount but both of these teams can easily finish in the 20s and still hit the Under. I would have stayed on the over if the total was near 46-47, but this baby keeps on climbing. The Under is 5-1 in the Buccaneers’ last 6 home games as well as 4-1 in their last 5 vs. the NFC. Take the Under and watch these two teams duel it out in Florida.
