Betting market: Nearly 60% of bettors are taking Ryan Fitzpatrick and the 2-0 Bucs as small home favorites at the time of writing (see live data here).

There has been no shortage of line movement, either: The Steelers got as high as 3-point favorites in some spots, but they’re now 1-point underdogs at most shops.

Something that pretty much everyone has agreed on is that there will be points galore in this game. Tampa’s high-scoring ways and Pittsburgh’s porous defense have led to nearly 80% of bets and dollars on the over, which has driven the line up from 50 to 53.5/54. Mark Gallant
