Take Arizona at -6.5 home vs. Tampa Bay
Arizona was stunned in week 1, as New England came in with no Tom Brady or Rob Gronkowski and still got the road win 23-21. Tampa Bay was able to go on the road and defeat Atlanta 31-24 as well, with Jameis Winston throwing for 4 TD passes. Arizona is regarded as one of the top teams once this season, and did not want to start their season 0-1 especially in a home start. The owners and coaches called it poor execution, and you can guarantee that they’ll be ready to practice hard and gear up for next week’s home game. Arizona hasn’t lost consecutive home game in a season since 2012, and at that time they were a completely different team with 4 different starting QBs. Tampa Bay has shown that their young nucleus is improving with Winston in his second season and Mike Evans in his 3rd. However, Arizona is still a legitimate Super Bowl LI contender and will not start the season 0-2. It’s always tough facing New England and Bill Belichick, who’s in a league of his own when it comes to coaching. Expect them to come out firing against the Bucs to once again show their dominance and why Carson Palmer was an MVP candidate last season, and don’t be surprised if the game gets out of control quickly.
