Selection by betting analyst Sam Panayotovich:
The Bucs are basically the walking wounded right now.
Tom Brady, still down three offensive linemen, likely to be without Mike Evans, Chris Godwin Y Julio Jones vs. Green Bay, And the news just keeps getting worse. Elite defensive end and run-blocker Akiem Hicks is out with plantar fasciitis, which only makes life easier in the Packers’ backfield.
Aaron Rodgers turned the ball over 33 times to Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon last Sunday for 193 yards. The Cheeseheads won’t be as successful against Tampa Bay, but balance has always brought Green Bay’s offense to life under Matt LaFleur.
It’s hard to bet against Brady, but the Packers are the play.
TO CHOOSE: Packers (+1.5 on FOX Bet) lose by less than 1.5 points (or win outright)
