Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Picks & Betting Tips


Tampa Bay can make a winning start to their defense of the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The Bucs have returned all 22 starters and that means they are loaded on both sides of the football.

Dallas have Dak Prescott back and he has the weapons around him to help the points total here.

That new-look defense could be picked apart from Tom Brady though. And that Bucs defense is still one of the very best.

Tampa can cover in a season-opening win.
