Packers-Buccaneers Players to Watch

GB QB Aaron Rodgers has let us all know that even his bad games are good games for the common-folk QBs in the NFL. He's topped 250 yards in three of the Packers' four games this season, and that's happened largely without his top WR, Davante Adams. The wideout should be back in Week 6, and the Bucs D has allowed QBs an average of exactly 275 passing yards per game. He should be closer to 300 with his top target in the lineup.

TB QB Tom Brady has 9 passing TDs and has averaged more than 300 passing yards over the past three weeks. The Packers D has allowed at least 2 touchdown passes in three of its four games, and the only miss there was ATL QB Matt Ryan doing something he hasn't done since his rookie season. Expect Brady to put up at least 250 passing yards and two TDs Sunday.


Packers-Buccaneers Matchup to Watch

GB WR Davante Adams vs. TB secondary

Adams hasn't played since Week 2 but is trending toward making his return. Whenever Adams plays, he's the focal point of the Packers offense. I'd expect his usual volume against the Bucs defense who just have up 10 catches for 90 yards to Allen Robinson last Thursday night.

BEST BET: Buccaneers (-105)

If you bet this game early in the week (thankfully, I did), you could have had the Buccaneers plus as many as three points. With all the money coming in the home team, we're down to a Pick ‘Em. But I'm still with Brady and his boys on Sunday.

CONSIDER: Over 55.5 (-110)

These two teams have each hit the Over three times this season. It's how much they've beaten it by that has me interested. The Packers have beaten the total by an average of 12.4 points, and the Bucs have topped their Over totals by an average of 5.3 points. With two first-ballot Hall of Famers leading these offenses, the Over is definitely option in Week 6.

PASS: The Point Spread

The Packers were initially favored by 2.5 points in this contest. This line has moved enough that there is no point spread as of press time, meaning we're off that wager.
