NFL Sports Betting: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Green Bay Packers
This weekend the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers (9-0). BetDSI Sportsbook current Live Lines show the Green Bay Packers as -900 favorites giving up -14 points to the Buccaneers.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense was in disarray last week against the Texans getting smashed 37-9. QB Josh Freeman made many mistakes going 15/33 for 170 yards, 1 TD, and 3 interceptions. The running failed to produce any explosiveness with LeGarrette Blount leading the team with 10 rushes for 34 yards. The only guy with a touchdown for the Bucs was WR Preston Parker who also had a lost fumble.
The Buccaneers defense was destroyed by Houston for 5 touchdowns, 3 rushing, 2 passing. They allowed 420 total yards, 235 passing, and 185 rushing. The defense did not get a single sack, interception, or even force a fumble. Newly acquired DT Albert Haynesworth who was recently released from the Patriots had 5 tackles impressing coach Raheem Morris.
The undefeated defending superbowl champion Green Bay Packers had no problem dispatching the Vikings 45-7 last Sunday. QB Aaron Rodgers had another amazing game this season throwing 23 completions on 30 attempts for 250 yards and 4 TD’s. Once again the running game was hardly needed, runningback James Starks had the best day on the ground running 13 times for 63 yards. WR Jordy Nelson had 5 catches for 63 yards and 2 Touchdowns.
Not much the Packer defense did wrong last week allowing only 7 points on 266 total yards, 104 rushing, 162 passing. Linebacker Clay Matthews had 5 tackles, 2 sacks, and a forced fumble on the day. LB Desmond Bishop had 8 tackles and a Sack, and CB Tramon Williams had the games only interception.
Betting Prediction: I do not like laying two touchdowns on any game regardless of the mis-match. The best bet is probably on the over of 48 1/2 points as the Green Bay Packers have been just about scoring that on their own on a weekly basis. I don’t give the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers much chance in this game that could be a blowout.
