(NFL) Dallas vs. Tampa Bay, 09/09/2021 8:20 PM, Score: 29 - 31
Point Spread: -6.50 | -115.00 Tampa Bay (Home)
Result: Loss
This is a 5* play on Tampa.

The Bucs are a big favorite in the season opener versus Dallas, and the game script suggests that Tampa will be doing plenty of scoring. Their team total is set at 30.5, and if they hit that then there will be a few TDs to go around. The main man in the red zone is Mike Evans, who caught 13 TD passes in 2020. With Antonio Brown and Chris Godwin each entering this game with an injury designation of "questionable", Evans could see even more touches. If this game does go according to script, the Bucs should open up a healthy lead which will result in a heavy dose of run plays in the second half. With Ronald Jones splitting the workload with Leonard Fournette, both backs have pretty low rush yard totals. Bruce Arians seems to favor Jones, who averaged over five yards per carry last season. He should have no problem running for 50+ yards.
