Betting market: After being reluctant to move this game off Bucs -3 early in the week, oddsmakers finally gave in. At the time of writing, the Bucs are getting 61% of bets and 68% of dollars (see live betting data here). The number finally moved to -3.5 or even -4 at some books. —Mark Gallant

Trends to know: One way to tell if the pros like an over is by tracking ticket and dollar percentages. When you’re seeing a higher percentage of money than tickets (i.e. 65% of dollars but 45% of bets), that is an indication of sharp action.

According to our Bet Labs data, the over has gone 67-54-1 (55%) since 2016 when there is at least 10% more money than tickets wagered on the over.

At the time of writing, 67% of tickets and 90% of dollars are on the Browns-Bucs over (find live data here). —John Ewing
