The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-5 SU and ATS) suddenly find themselves in the thick of the playoff hunt again after five straight wins straight up and against the spread. A tough test awaits the surging Bucs when they’ll face the Dallas Cowboys (11-2 SU, 9-4 ATS) at Arlington, Texas Sunday night. The Cowboys are 7-point favorites with the full game total at 46.5 points.
The Cowboys have already clinched a playoff spot, but the NFC East is still up for grabs after last week’s 10-7 loss to the New York Giants. There’s talk about Tony Romo perhaps replacing Dak Prescott at quarterback, although Prescott is expected to be given another chance to prove himself against Tampa Bay despite throwing just 165 yards with two picks last week.
The Bucs, meanwhile, have to be pleased with the performance of sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston. He’s on the verge of becoming a Top-10 quarterback in the NFL, and he’s has thrown just three interceptions during Tampa’s five-game winning streak. The rushing attack, on the other hand, is one of the worst in the league at just 3.5 yards per carry while the Cowboys are second overall at 4.8 yards.
