Tampa Bay at Dallas Cowboys Predictions and Betting Tips

We are backing Tampa Bay to cover in a season-opening win at Dallas.

The Bucs have undergone some major changes in the off season, but they did tempt back Tom Brady.

Brady has a bunch of weapons at his disposal and the Tampa defense will be a top unit once again.

Tampa are primed for another post-season run and are backed to lay down an early marker here.

  • Tampa Bay have covered in 5 of their last 7 games vs NFC teams
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won 7 of their last 8 regular season games
  • Tampa Bay have covered in 6 of their last 8 regular season games
  • Back Tampa to win at Stake.com.

Head To Head

  • Dallas Cowboys lead the series 15-5
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers won 31-29 when the teams last met in September 2021

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Form

Tampa Bay failed to win back-to-back Super Bowls, exiting last season’s playoffs in the Divisional Round.

The Buccaneers compiled a 13-4 record to make it to the postseason, and then eased past Philadelphia in the wildcard round.

Their run ended a week later though, as they were beaten 30-27 by eventual Super Bowl winners, the Los Angeles Rams.

In the weeks to follow, Bruce Arians departed as head coach and Tom Brady announced his retirement.

Defensive co-ordinator Todd Bowles was named as Arians' successor, and he and the Bucs were able to tempt Brady into a U-turn.

The legendary QB will be back at the controls on offense and is looking to follow up his excellent 2021 campaign.

Brady threw for 5,316 yards, 43 touchdowns and 12 interceptions during the regular season.

Chris Godwin was his favourite target as he hauled in 98 of his 127 targets for 1,103 yards and five TDs, while Mike Evans caught 74 passes for 1,035 yards and 14 touchdowns.

On defense, they ranked #7 in the league in points allowed per game despite being middle of the pack in yards allowed per game.

Dallas Cowboys Form

Dallas made it to the playoffs in 2021 and will be looking to do the same this time around.

The Cowboys took the NFC East last season courtesy of a 12-5 record, having finished the campaign strong.

They stumbled in the middle with back-to-back losses against Kansas City and Las Vegas, but rebounded to win five of their final six games.

That set them up nicely for the post-season, but they fell at the first hurdle as they lost 23-17 at home to San Francisco in the Wildcard round.

QB Dak Prescott finished the regular season having gone 410/596 for 4,449 yards, 37 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

CeeDee Lamb was the main benefactor in the passing game as he hauled in 79 catches for 1,102 yards and six touchdowns.

The Cowboys will be without Amari Cooper, who moved on after putting up 865 yards and eight scores.

Dallas’ defense did not factor high when it came to points and yards allowed per game, but that group was successful thanks to splash plays.

The Cowboys led the league in takeaways per game, registering 1.9 per outing.
