Week 8 Thursday Night Football Picks

Danny -

Tampa Bay @ Minnesota -5.5 - Tampa Bay is 2-4 and in their 4 losses they haven't lost by more than 7 points.  Those losses have come against the arms of Drew Brees, Tony Romo, RG3, and Eli Manning...not too shabby of opponents.  I like Tampa Bay to turn the tables tonight on the Vikings defense.  Minnesota has allowed over 230 passing yards in three out of six games this season and in those three games they have only won by 7 points in each game.  Now combine that with the fact that the Bucs can stop the run and what you have here is a close, low scoring game.  In both games that the Vikings have not reached 100 yards rushing, they have lost.  I do not expect the Vikings to reach the century mark tonight and I think Tampa Bay has enough fire power to get the upset win in Minnesota.  Tied for 6th in interceptions, 3rd against the run, and in the top third of the NFL for points allowed, I like the Bucs to get a road win tonight.

Pick -  Tampa Bay 20 - Minnesota 16
