Buccaneers Packers Betting – Packers Look To Remain Perfect Against Buccaneers This Sunday
It may still be too early, but the fans in and around Lambeau Field are already talking about the “P” word in Wisconsin. That is because the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers have picked up from where they left off this season as the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL, and for as good as they have been they still haven’t played their best in several areas. The Packers will remain at home this week and prepare for a slumping Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ team that limps in to Lambeau on the heels of three straight losses, and can cement their division lead with another big win.

While the Packers have perhaps even exceeded expectations out of the gate so far this year, the Buccaneers’ playoff hopes have come to a sudden halt with three straight losses surrounding a bye week that has them winless in the past month. Despite their struggles, Josh Freeman and company still feel they can compete for a playoff spot, but another loss this weekend would be a devastating blow.

The Buccaneers are a young team, and when injuries begin to factor in to the equation and the losses start to add up, it can be hard to turn things around. Head coach Raheem Morris understands the uphill road that Tampa Bay will have to climb in order to have a shot, and will look to inspire confidence in his troops at every turn. The Buccaneers will need to find a way to move the ball on the ground as they try and get back in the win column, while the defense simply has to be better. Tampa Bay ranks in the bottom-five against both the run and pass, and if they bring those sports betting numbers to Lambeau Field they are going to get lit up.

The sports betting odds for a perfect season have been laid, but it won’t get any easier for Green Bay. On the heels of their Monday night contest against the Minnesota Vikings, the Packers do not play another team that had a losing record heading in to week 10 of the regular season, including three games combined against the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears. Whether it is the offense putting up 45 points against the San Diego Chargers, or the defense allowing just three against the St. Louis Rams, Green Bay has been able to win in different ways, and will look for another big online wagering performance at home this week.
Buccaneers Packers Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick
The Buccaneers have been absolutely awful lately, and it starts on the defensive side of the ball where the team is giving up a ton of points. Green Bay should put up a ton of points in this game, but their defense hasn’t been great, and that should allow Tampa Bay to keep this one within two scores.Buccaneers Packers Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
