Bears vs Buccaneers Odds, Game Pick and Prediction NFL Week 2

Week 1 of the 2023 NFL season is in the books, and you have to say that it did not go the way most of us expected. The Chiefs, Bills, and Bengals all lost, while the New York Jets may well have seen their season implode, with Aaron Rodgers going down for the season in just the 4th play of their opening game. It is going to be interesting to see if things begin to level out in Week 2, as we all tend to get a little too excited about what we saw in one week of action. Now, it’s time to look ahead to the upcoming games to see if we can get some winning tickets put together. We are going to start things out by taking a look at the matchup between the Bears and the Buccaneers, a pair of teams expected to struggle this season. The Bucs are a 2 ½ point home favorite, with the point total set at 41. Don’t miss our NFL betting prediction.

Why bet on the Chicago Bears

It was not a great start to the season for the Bears, as they were pretty much dismantled by the Green Bay Packers in a game that the bookies had as being tight. Chicago went into that one as a 1-point favorite but ended up going down 38-20 in a game that was as lopsided as the score suggests. The Bears did not look particularly good on either side of the football and could well be in trouble again this weekend. Things are pretty grim for this team, which has failed to win in its last 10 games, while also covering the spread just once in their last 9. They have not had much success in Tampa, going 3-9 SU in their last 12 visits, which is not surprising when you consider that they have just 1 road win in their last 9 overall. The OVER has hit in 9 of their last 12 games overall.

Why bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The expectation was that the Bucs would go into Minnesota in Week 1 and come out on the losing end of things, but that is not how it all played out. Instead, they came away with a 20-17 win in a game that they started as a 4-point underdog. That was a solid win for Tampa, but expectations are now going to be a little higher for their home opener against the Bears. The Bucs D throttled the Vikings run game in Week 1, but can they handle what Justin Fields will be bringing to the table on Sunday. If they can, they might just be looking at an unexpected 2-0 start. September has been good for this team, as they are 7-2 SU in their last 9 in the opening month of the season, as well as being a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games played in Week 2.

Expert Pick and Series Prediction

This is a game that both teams need for different reasons, with the Bears looking to avoid an 0-2 start, while the Bucs will not want to lose the momentum of that big Week 1 win. I like Tampa to win and cover, and I also like the OVER.
