Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET. Green Bay is 10-2-1 ATS in its L/13 road games, while Tampa Bay is 7-3 ATS in its L/10 home games. The Bucs were in Chicago last Sunday to face the Bears, who NFL odds makers favored by three-points, with the ‘total’ closing at 34.5.
Chicago was up by ten points in the fourth quarter, but Bucs QB Brian Griese rallied his team and tied the game with seven seconds remaining, forcing the game into overtime.
The Bucs would have gone three and out deep in their own territory, but an unnecessary roughness penalty by Bears cornerback Charles Tillman cost the Bears fifteen yards and allowed Tampa to retain the ball with a fresh set of downs. They were able to move the ball down the field and kick a field goal to win the game by a score of 27-24.
NFL betting fans who picked Tampa Bay getting the points, or straight up, were very pleased with the outcome of the non-divisional NFC battle. The Packers took on the Dallas Cowboys at Lambeau Field in Green Bay last Sunday night. Dallas was favored by three-points in the NFL betting contest, with the ‘total’ coming in at 50.5.
The Packers only got 84 yards rushing in the game, while their defense gave up 217 rushing yards to the Cowboys potent ground attack. Green Bay managed to get three field goals from kicker Mason Crosby, and a one yard touchdown run by QB Aaron Rodgers in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough to claim victory.
The Cowboys won the game 27-16 and covered the football betting line in the process. The final score failed to reach the predicted ‘total,’ pleasing NFL bettors that backed the under. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers currently stand a one-point favorite vs. the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon with the ‘total’ slated at 43.
