It’s regional action in prime time at 7PM Eastern Time. Some of the nation will receive the Detroit Tigers hosting the LA Angels over MLB Network. Right hander Justin Verlander will get the start for Detroit to face Angels left hander Hector Santiago. The Angels have had a bad few weeks as the club is just two games over .500 to start this series.

Cincinnati Bengals versus Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL Preseason Pro Football Betting Preview

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Week two of the 2015 NFL preseason will conclude on Monday August 24th as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Cincinnati Bengals. The teams begin play from Tampa Bay at 8PM Eastern Time and ESPN has the coast to coast broadcast.

Bet NFL pro football at Oddsmaker sportsbook, where bettors can now Claim their Free 100% Bonus up to $1000. Sign up today and get into the excitement of watching and wagering on NFL pro football all the way up to the Super Bowl scheduled for the first Sunday in February!

The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business have the home side Tampa Bay Buccaneers the -2 ½ point favorite with an over under line of 40 points.

A national television audience will tune in to check out the development of rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. In his debut with the Buccaneers last week against the Vikings the rookie QB threw for 131 yards and had a pick. He finished his work going 9 of 19 passing. Backup QB Mike Glennon saw work in six regular season games in 2014 and has lost his job to Winston as head coach Lovie Smith named the rookie quarterback as the week one starter as camp started. Glennon in his 2015 preseason debut hit 9 of 17 passes for 98 yards. For Tampa Bay to show improvement from a last place team in 2014 they will need to get more contribution from their run game which was a huge disappointment a season ago. Doug Martin ran for just 3.7 yards a year ago. Charles Sims a third round pick in 2014 had a poor rookie season with 2.8 yards per run average on 66 carries.

The Cincinnati Bengals have high standards in 2015. They are simply sick and tired of early playoff exits as the club is filled with talent on both sides of the football. During the lean years the Bengals did a good job of drafting players to fill needs to make the club good enough to win the division and earn playoff berths. Andy Dalton will have to be a better decision maker if the team is ever going to go deep in the playoffs. In 2014 he passed for 19 touchdowns but threw 17 interceptions and had a poor outing in the wildcard loss to the Indianapolis Colts. A.J. Green and Marvin Jones lead a very good receiving corps.

Landry Jones has been getting good looks in the preseason as the Steelers have to decide on his future on the team. Green Bay went into New England a week ago and came away with a 22-11 victory. Aaron Rodgers threw 19 passes in the opener and completed 11 throws for 117 yards.

Sunday Night Football returns to NBC TV at 8PM Eastern Time as Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Tians will host the St Louis Rams.
