Public Displaying Loss of Faith In Buccaneers Goat?
The Buccaneers actually were the 1.5-point home chalk in the NFL Week 8 opening line for this game. However, the public was quickly displaying that their faith in Tampa Bay was waning. And it’s hard to argue with such belief in Ravens vs Buccaneers picks.
In consecutive weeks, the Buccaneers have lost outright to the 2-5 Pittsburgh Steelers (-9.5) and 2-5 Carolina Panthers (-13) as overwhelming favorites. In each case, the Steelers (Mitch Trubisky) and Panthers (PJ Walker) got the better of Tampa Bay and seven-time Super Bowl winner Brady with backup QBs under center.
Since 2010, when getting less than 50% of bets Tom Brady is 20-8-2 (71%) ATS per @Bet_Labs.
29% of bets are on @Buccaneers -2 vs. Ravens.

The Buccaneers are 0-3 against the spread as home favorites this season, so perhaps betting the Buccaneers down to the status of home underdog might work in their favor. With Brady at QB, Tampa Bay is 3-0 ATS as a home underdog since 2020.
Over that same span, the Ravens are just 7-7-1 ATS as an away favorite. Baltimore is a team with its own issues. The Ravens have held 10+ point leads in every game this season but lost three of those games outright. They’re only 2-4-1 ATS this season.
Tampa Bay is 4-2 ATS in the past six games against Baltimore. However, the Buccaneers are 0-5 ATS over their past five games.
Public Optimistic Ravens vs Buccaneers Will Go Over
The total has jumped a tick since the opening line on this game. It was set at 44.5 points to start out. That the public is backing the over for this game belies how both clubs are performing on the total this season.
In Baltimore’s last five games, the total has gone under four times. The Ravens are 2-5 against the total this season. Baltimore has gone over once in three road games during 2022.
UNDERs are 16-5 (76%) in the last 21 games on Thursday Night Football per @EvanHAbrams.
Bucs-Ravens total has moved from 44.5 to 46.

Tampa Bay is even worse. The Buccaneers have gone over once in seven games. They’re 1-2 on the total at home.
If you’re looking for a play in the Ravens vs Buccaneers player props, Baltimore QB Lamar Jackson has rushed for more yards (501) than the entire Tampa Bay team (451).
Moneyline Bettors Also With Ravens
This is just the third time in his career as an NFL starting QB that Brady has launched a season 3-4. The previous two were with New England and on both occasions – 2001 (11-5) and 2002 (9-7) – the Patriots rebounded to post winning seasons. Even at 3-4, Tampa Bay is still set as the -220 chalk to win the NFC South in the NFL Divisional odds.
4 of the 6 starting DBs for the Buccaneers have been ruled out for tonight’s game.
