NFL Wild Card Round: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Washington Football Team Spread Odds
There are only two Wild Card Round games with spreads of over a score, and this is one of them. The Washington Football Team have been much improved this year and their defense in particular is amongst the best in the NFL, although it'll be tough to deal with the Bucs array of offensive talent. The market is a lost more even in the spread market than it is the moneyline, with the Bucs marginally ahead, with 53.1% of bets.
NFL Wild Card Round: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Washington Football Team Total Points Odds
Largely we find that people bet the over, partly due to the belief in offensive football. This isn't one of those cases, with 55% of people backing Under 45 points. That looks like a vote of confidence in the ability of Chase Young and the WFT defense. Not only that but with Ron Rivera unsure if Alex Smith will play every down, it is perhaps a lack of belief in Washington's offense too.
