Packers vs Buccaneers pick against the spread and predictions
There are many quality games this week in the NFL, but none bigger than this one. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers head south to take on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This meeting of Hall-of-fame quarterbacks will be a “must-see” TV this weekend. The storylines are endless and there is plenty of information to cover before making the Packers vs Buccaneers pick against the spread.
This is one of those unique games for many reasons. The reason that really stands out is that this game features a flipped favorite. The Buccaneers started out as (-3) point favorites, but that line quickly changed. This point-spread stunned even the most faithful Tampa Bay followers. Aaron Rodgers is playing at an MVP caliber level and the Packers have yet to lose. The public quickly jumped on the points as over 70 percent of the money poured in on the Packers. This caused a massive shift in the point spread and the current NFL odds show that Green Bay is now the favorite. This is a “flipped favorite” situation.

Buccaneers Beat down
The Buccaneers were upset by the Chicago Bears a week ago. This is tough to swallow for Tampa Bay backers because they are the better team, but after blowing a lead, they seem anything but. However, it was on a short week on the road, which is a very difficult situation for any team. Ronald Jones put on a wonderful showing with 17 carries and a game-high 106 yards. The offensive line has issues, but this will be the main focus of this team as they get ready for the Packers.
Aaron Rodgers is legendary. His legend continues to grow this year as the packers seem unstoppable. He will have to be on top of his game once again as the Buccaneers have 17 sacks and nine takeaways on the season. The Packers have provided excellent protection for Rodgers (only 3 sacks in four games) but this will be the best defense they have faced all year. Want proof? The Packers are averaging 38 points per game this season which is the best in the NFL. Sure that can be attributed to Rodgers and the offense, but the defense is tied for 18th in the NFL for points allowed.
Green Bay Packers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Preview
The Packers are happy to have a bye week. It gave All-pro wide receiver Davante Adams a chance to heal and be available for this game. The Packers are 4-0 against the spread (ATS) this season, but it’s time for a correction.
Tom Brady screamed at his team in the loss to the Bears. This sets a clear level of expectations from the most respected leader on the team. This will give the Bucs time to focus on protecting Brady and the Packers better be ready to do the same. Bucs HC Bruce Arians made it clear that he will come after Rodgers.
#GoBucs coach Bruce Arians says Aaron Rodgers is throwing at a really high level. “You have to get after him. You can’t play scared.” Said the improvisational plays is when he’s at his best.

This will be a true test for Green Bay. They are a very good team, but not a team worthy of being a favorite on the road against Brady and the Bucs. This goes down to the wire and will be the best game of the week. Back the Bucs and take the points.
