Pick via Gambling Analyst Sam Panayotovich:

I think the Bucs are about to get hot.

Their schedule is mostly a cakewalk the rest of the regular season, and they’ll probably be underdogs once [at San Francisco]. Tampa Bay’s defense is the healthiest it has been all year, and I trust that Todd Bowles can stop Cleveland quarterback Jacoby Brissett from mounting an offensive assault.

The Browns are frisky, but they keep finding ways to lose games. They only have three wins this season – Jets, Steelers, Bengals – and I don’t think that number will increase against the Brady Bunch. Plus, the bye week should help the Bucs’ once-mangled offensive line round into form.

Give me Tampa Bay by a touchdown.

PICK: Buccaneers (-3.5 at FOX Bet) to win by more than 3.5 points
