NFL Week 16 Odds, Picks & Predictions: Buccaneers vs. Cardinals

This is a tough game to endorse in totality. The Cardinals have been miserable at home, having gone 12-18 ATS at State Farm Stadium since HC Kliff Kingsbury’s arrival in 2019, and now trot out third-string QB Trace McSorley in their bout with Tampa. The inclination to back Tampa here makes sense, but let’s consider the Bucs’ own resume. In their last six true road games, the Bucs are 0-4 SU and ATS, failing to cover by an average margin of 19 points.

The Bucs’ resume precludes them from being favored to such a degree. Tampa has been thoroughly unimpressive, and it is too short-sided to grant the Cards 7.5 points on the spread.

Lean Cardinals +7.5
