The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are at the top of the NFC South with a 5-5 record. It might not be the most impressive record, but they’re getting the job done. To keep their spot, they’ll need to get a win over the Cleveland Browns this weekend. One loss and they could go from first place to second place quickly. The question is, can they pull off a win in this game?

The Cleveland Browns have a record of 3-7, which seems quite underwhelming. However, you have to remember that the Browns are one of the best rushing teams. If they can use their running game to establish their offense early, they can win this game. Don’t count them out too quickly, especially at home against a team that is used to warm weather.

Buccaneers vs. Browns Preview, Trends and Stats

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won their last two games, increasing their record to .500. There’s still a lot of season left, but they’ll have to keep pushing to stay atop the NFC South. This game will give them the chance to create a bit of a gap between them and the Atlanta Falcons.

The Buccaneers have the 27th-ranked offense in the NFL, averaging 18.3 points per game. The big problem when it comes to their offense, however, is their running game. Averaging 70.7 rushing yards per game, the Buccaneers rank last in the NFL.

The shining spot for Tampa Bay is their defense, which allows just 18 points per game. They rank sixth in the NFL in this category and will need a strong defense against Cleveland. They held the Seattle Seahawks to just 16 points, an impressive feat to be sure.

The Cleveland Browns have suffered two straight losses. Their first was to the Miami Dolphins, who beat them 39-17 just a few weeks ago. They followed that loss up with another one to the Buffalo Bills, who beat them 31-23.

The Browns have a strong running offense, but that’s about it. With Jacoby Brissett still under center, the Browns can’t move forward in the passing game. Even with players like Amari Cooper and Nick Chubb, the Browns can’t seem to win.

Buccaneers vs. Browns Picks

Between these two teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers seem much more equipped to win. They have the better offense and a solid defense to match. What’s important is they don’t rely on just one facet of offense to win the game.

The Cleveland Browns, however, rely solely on their rushing game. Without that, they don’t have much of an offense. The better pick in our opinion, is the away team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Final Score: 23-17 (Buccaneers)

EXTRA POINTS

1. The total has gone under in five of Tampa Bay’s last six games.

2. The Buccaneers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games against Cleveland.

3. The Browns are 1-6 in their last seven games this season.

Best Bet: Buccaneers -3.5 (-104) and Under 42.5 (-104)
