Team totals from Pinnacle, Bodog, and/or 5Dimes.

Team Totals

Buccaneers O24.5

This was an easy choice.  Tampa Bay's offense has been on fire the last several games.  Do I see it slowing down this Sunday?  Possibly, because they have been inconsistent throughout the season, but the Chargers pass defense hasn't been very good this year.  San Diego also rank dreadfully low in red zone defense - an area the Bucs thrive in.  Keep in mind the Chargers D has put up these stats against a weak schedule.

Titans U19

Jake Locker returns to the show, but he returns to a mess. The Titans offense doesn't do much right with the exception of pass blocking.  CJ is going to have a tough time rushing against this Miami D which will really hurt the Titans ability to sustain drives.  Once they get in the red zone?  Dolphins rank near the top.  I expect field goals with the only danger coming from garbage points at the end of the game.

Lions O23.5

As mentioned in my game preview, the Vikings defense is trending in the wrong direction - especially vs the run.  Detroit isn't a run-first team, but they do use the run effectively much more than people think.  Stafford has returned to the top group of QBs in the league in efficiency rating and should have a good day against a poor secondary.  Lions are also one of the best teams at sustaining drives and converting their chances into touchdowns - all advantages over the Vikings D.
