Buccaneers vs Raiders Predictions and Picks

The Raiders 6th ranked offense puts up better offensive numbers than the Bucs except when it comes to scoring, but since the Raiders’ defense is ranked in the bottom third of the league while Tampa Bay is first overall on that side of the ball, the Buccaneers covering this spread in Week 7 seems likely.

GOAT quarterback Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers are riding high after their Week 6 blowout of Aaron Rodgers and his previously unbeaten Green Bay Packers by the lopsided score of 38-10, so forgive them if they aren’t too intimidated to go up against a team that has been as up and down as the Raiders have been.

Las Vegas is learning to embrace its new Raiders football team as QB Derek Carr and head coach Jon Gruden pulled off a Week 5 miracle by somehow stealing a victory of the far better Kansas City Chiefs, and now after a restful bye week, they should be ready to face these tough Bucs at home.

These two cross-conference rivals have played each other 10 times (including 1 postseason game), with the Las Vegas Raiders winning 7 of those games and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning 3 of them.

Can QB Tom Brady and His Bucs Offense Begin to Click?

Buccaneer’s new quarterback Tom Brady was brought in to replace Jameis Winston, who could not stop throwing the football to the other team.

Brady has done his job so far, only throwing 4 picks compared to his 14 touchdown passes, now playing in an offense that has its share of playmakers, unlike on his previous team.

The good news is the Buccaneers are facing a Raiders team who have a defense that allows opponents to score an average of 30 points per game, which happens to about the same number of points the Tampa Bay team typically puts on the board.

Our best NFL bonuses for Week 7 are here!

Can Derek Carr be Effective Against the NFL’s Top Defense?

Right now, Raiders QB Derek Carr leads the league in pass completion percentage, 73.1, and he has tossed the ball into the end zone eleven times, impressive even more so when you consider he has thrown just one interception so far this season.

But in Week 7, Carr and his Raiders will face a Buccaneers defense that is currently ranked first in the league after only allowing opponents to gain only 282 total yards and score just 20.3 points every time they play.

Carr’s passer rating is 115.9, which is plenty, but his stock will explode upwards if he can somehow lead his wayward Raiders to a win over Brady’s Bucs at home.

Editor’s Picks

Buccaneers Key Player: (WR) Mike Evans

One guy the Bucs can’t afford to lose to injury is star wide receiver Mike Evans, who has begun to form some chemistry with his new QB, Tom Brady, after having played with someone else for the last few seasons.

Evans is listed as questionable for Week 7, his ankle still an issue and forcing him to be a game-time decision, but if it’s close to being ready to go expect him to suit up, the tough playmaker known for playing through his injuries.

This season has been productive so far for Evans, with 23 receptions off 37 targets for 281 yards and 6 touchdowns, numbers that should grow as he and his GOAT quarterback Brady continue to click in the game after game.

Raiders Key Player: (S) Johnathan Abram

Injuries to the Raiders secondary could hamper their effectiveness against the GOAT’s air attack, with a couple of their safeties listed as questionable for this Week 7 matchup.

Safety Johnathan Abram will be a game-time decision, suffering from an undisclosed illness, so far with an interception, 3 passes defended, 2 quarterback hits, a fumble recovery, and 28 total tackles with 2 of those for a loss.

The other Raiders defensive back that’s listed as questionable for Week 7 is CB Lamarcus Joyner, who is dealing with a hamstring issue, his 21 tackles (3 for a loss), and pass defended just a fraction of what he is capable of contributing when healthy.
