NFL Week 9 Prop Bet: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Seattle Seahawks 1st Half Over: 26.5
First Half OVER 26.5 (+105)
Each of the last five Tampa Bay Buccaneers games have gone over in the first half. Also, in those five games, Buccaneers games have wound up with 50 points or more. Bucs’ quarterback Jameis Winston is actually sixth in the league in passing yards and has thrown at least two touchdowns in four of his last five games. It helps when you have two wide receivers that are having massive campaigns.
Chris Goodwin and Mike Evans have 1400 yards receiving, 85 receptions, and 12 touchdowns combined. But we’re betting about the over so we cannot just worry about the offense; the Buccaneers defense are 31st in passing yards allowed. That is great news for Seahawks QB Russell Wilson who has 20 total touchdowns this year. Just like the Bucs, the Seahawks have issues on the defensive end. This is not your older brother’s Seattle defense. This is not the Legion of Boom; the 2019 Seahawks defense is 27th in the league against the pass. That means plenty of points between Winston and Wilson.
Some Bones for You to Nibble On:
- 16 of the last 21 Tampa Bay games on the road have gone over
- Six of the last eight Buccaneers games when playing on the west coast have also gone over
- For the Seattle Seahawks, the over has happened in 12 of their last 17 contests.
