Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Detroit Lions Preview & Picks

Detroit are tipped to cover as they advance in the playoffs.

The Lions won comfortably in Tampa during the regular season, and a repeat scene is expected here.

Their pass rush will pressure Baker Mayfield all night and the offense will play good complementary football.

  • Detroit Lions are 7-1 in their last 8 homes games
  • Detroit Lions are 4-1-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall
  • The Under cashed when the two teams met in October
  • The Under has hit in each of Tampa Bay’s last 4 games

Head To Head

  • Detroit Lions lead the all-time series 32-29
  • Detroit Lions won 20-6 when the two teams last met on October 15

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Form

Tampa Bay head to Detroit for this playoff game on the back of their sixth win in their last seven games.

The Buccaneers’ season looked to be falling apart when they lost six times in a seven-game run after the bye week to fall to 4-7.

However, in a poor NFC South they were not out of the postseason mix and produced a strong run from the start of December to make it to the postseason.

Tampa Bay won five times in six games, including a 34-20 victory at Green Bay, and that saw them into the playoffs.

The Buccaneers then made straightforward work of their Wildcard game, blowing out last season’s beaten Super Bowl team, Philadelphia, 32-9.

Detroit Lions Form

Detroit come into this Divisional round matchup on the back of their first playoff victory for 32 years.

The Lions made an early statement when they visited defending champions Kansas City on opening night and knocked off the Chiefs, 21-20.

They lost their second outing, but rebounded in strong fashion by winning seven of their next eight games to put themselves on course of the postseason.

Detroit stumbled late in the season as they lost to division rivals Green Bay and Chicago, but they were able to secure playoff football with three wins in their final four games.

The Lions then ended their playoff drought with a 24-23 win over the Los Angeles Rams in the Wildcard round last weekend.

Verdict

Detroit shut down Tampa Bay during the regular season and this time they have home advantage.

With Ford Field rocking, we expect Dan Campbell’s team to take down the Buccaneers for a second time.
