Buccaneers vs. Broncos Week 5

Week 5 Odds: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Denver Broncos

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have proven that even though a lot of things have changed in the NFL this season, some things have stayed the same. Tampa plays defense like no other team in the NFL. They are a group of young, ball-hawking, tough guys led by middle linebacker Barrett Rudd. Rudd already has two interceptions this year. He’s one of the reasons that NFL betting fans have been very happy with the Buccaneers this season. The Bucs have a pretty good offense as well. Led by the running back tandem of Warrick Dunn and Ernest Graham, the Bucs can go fast or slow in the run game. That could spell trouble for the Denver Broncos in this game.

Why? Because the Denver Broncos are terrible versus the run. The Broncos got lucky two weekends ago when Martin Grammatica missed a last minute field goal for the New Orleans. It allowed the Broncos to secure a victory versus the Saints. The Saints had that game in their grasps but Grammatica missed the field goal. The Broncos didn’t learn their lesson and got slapped around by the woeful Kansas City Chiefs in their next game. This weekend they play one of the better teams in the NFC. What are their chances of really taking it to Tampa? Let’s find out!

Here are the odds:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers + 3 Ev
Denver Broncos – 3 – 120

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 3 and 1 against the spread so far this season.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 1 and 1 against the spread in their two away games so far this season.
The Denver Broncos are 1-2-1 against the spread so far this season.
The Denver Broncos are 0-1-1 against the spread at home so far this season.

Don’t walk, run to the BetUS online sportsbook and make a wager on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +3 even money. There’s just no other way for me to write this.

The Denver Broncos have one of the most porous run defenses in the NFL. Coach Jon Gruden for the Bucs is already thinking of ways to exploit that horrible Broncos’ run defense with both Warrick Dunn and Ernest Graham. Online betting fans have to take that into account when handicapping this game.

There just isn’t anyway that the Broncos will be able to stop the Bucs from running it down their throats. If Larry Johnson, behind a suspect offensive line, could take it to the Broncos, then what will the Bucs do?

Not only that but this is the best defense that Jay Cutler and that Denver offense has faced all season. Barrett Rudd could have a field day rushing Cutler or dropping back into coverage. With the Bucs causing Cutler to make bad decisions, I really believe that Denver could lose their second game in a row.

NFL Week 5 Prediction:

I’ll be conservative and make an online bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to beat the BetUS online wagering spread of three points. Why not take the points at even money?

That’s what I plan on doing.
