Rotation # 151
Cowboys -2.5 over Bucs (win)
The Bucs are the more popular team to the American public as Tom Brady is the best QB in the last 20 years, but he is 45 years old and led his team to a losing record this year. Tampa played in the worst division in football, while the Cowboys arguably played in the toughest division. Seeing Tampa as the home underdog is odd, but they are for a reason. Tampa played a weak schedule and is a one-trick pony, as they never run the ball. Mike McCarthy might not be the best coach in the league, but he is better than Todd Bowles. Tampa has a lot of first-year coaches, and it showed this year. The general public will see how Dallas played against Washington last week and dismiss them as a bad team. The Cowboys were not playing for anything in that game, knowing the Eagles would beat a Giants team playing their backups. Dallas brings in a better running game and is more balanced. Tampa has been shuffling its offensive line due to injuries and won’t keep Brady clean against the Dallas front seven. Look for Dak Prescott to be able to find his tight ends and speedy receivers after they loosen up the Bucs’ defense with the run. Take the Cowboys.
