Buccaneers at Seahawks: odds, predictions and preview


Russell Wilson and the soaring Seattle Seahawks take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 9, in one of the most lopsided match ups of the weekend. The Buccaneers have yet to win a game, while the Seahawks only loss of the season has come at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts.

Tampa Bay enters the game as 16.5-point underdogs, with the over/under being set at 40.5.

Considering how terrible the Buccaneers have been, it is very possible that the Seahawks are able to cover the spread. The over/under will almost certainly be surpassed.

If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers want to win, their only chance will be to get pressure on Russell Wilson. The Seahawks pass protection is awful, so that is the big weakness Tampa Bay will need to attempt to exploit.

Unfortunately, on the opposite side of the ball, Seattle’s defense is going to manhandle the Buccaneers offense and rookie Mike Glennon is going to look lost.

This could be one of the ugliest games of the season, which could ultimately be the final straw in the Greg Schiano era.
