Houston vs. Tampa Bay, 12/21/2019 13:00 EDT, Score: 23 - 20

Point Spread: +3/-110 Tampa Bay

Sportsbook: Bodog

Result: Push

I'm playing on TAMPA. The Texans are off a big divisional win over the Titans, at Tennessee. That was a pivotal game and many bettors were part of it, one way or another. Therefore, they all know that Houston pulled off the minor upset. Now, many of those same bettors will see lowly Tampa, a team which will not be making the playoffs and which is without one of its most recognizable weapons (receiver Evans) and they'll assume another win for the Texans. You know what they say about assuming things though. The Bucs may not be going to the playoffs but they're quietly as hot as any team in football. Even when losing, this team was playing hard. Now, they've figured out how to win and are off four straight victories. They've scored 38 points in b2b games; Evans didn't play in the most recent. All Winston has done is become the first QB in history to throw for more than 450 yards in b2b games. The Texans are 0-4 SU/ATS their last four, when off an "upset win." They're also 0-5 ATS when playing their previous game on the road. The last time that they played the second of b2b road games, they lost 41-7. The Bucs will be looking to make a statement. Expect them to do so.
