Injury Update

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has long tortured the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise. Thanks to his sudden change of heart to come back, Brady will have one more opportunity to drive a stake in the heart of the Pittsburgh faithful in this NFL Week 6 matchup.

Buccaneers vs. Steelers Betting Preview

Buccaneers vs. Steelers betting analysis shows this is a game where the road team will likely be favored. Tampa Bay has been Super Bowl contenders for the past few seasons with Brady, while NFL odds show Pittsburgh has been slowly declining. One thing that could hasten the decline is if the Steelers can’t figure out their quarterback situation.

Pittsburgh Steelers will likely have a mixture of Mitch Trubisky and Kenny Pickett throughout the season. The Steelers will also need to get their defense up to speed. 

Pittsburgh had its worst season against the run since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. The Steelers brought in some free agents on the defensive line to try and help fix the problem.

When it comes to how to bet on football, figuring out Tampa Bay will all be on Brady’s shoulder. The veteran quarterback led the league in passing at age 44 and there is little reason to expect he won’t be competitive again this season. 

While Father Time usually catches up to people, Brady has been impervious to fatigue or decline.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh, being in different conferences, don’t have much mutual history. Anyone looking at Buccaneers vs. Steelers betting odds could see most of the games have ended in Pittsburgh’s favor.

Betting Tips for Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Buccaneer vs. Steelers betting analysis shows this is a game that should be controlled by Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers play solid enough defense to keep Pittsburgh on its toes. The Steelers will need to find a way to pressure Brady. 

Anyone who makes NFL picks knows that without getting pressure on Brady, most teams are unable to fluster the veteran quarterback. 

Pittsburgh will be a team in flux this season. While the Steeler’s defense will keep them in a lot of games, this will be one where the pressure from Tampa Bay will be too much.
