Green Bay at Tampa Bay

3 units on Game Total UNDER 43 -109 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Battle of the Bays used to be a heated divisional rivalry, but the Bucs after realignment, these teams don't meet as often. The Bucs have become much maligned as they carry a shrinking payroll and an 0-7 record into this one. The Packers’ defense has come up huge against the lesser offenses of the NFL and they will certainly face one here today. Tampa Bay’s offense has topped the 14-point mark just once in their last five games and it appears to be regressing, not improving. The Packers have had their way with this type of offense as they allowed a combined 3 points to the No. 25 ranked offense of the Lions and No. 31 ranked Browns. The Bucs come in at No. 28 and likely will struggle to move the ball against the Packers defense. Green Bay may not put four quarters into this game, limiting their scoring opportunities as they have a big rivalry showdown with Dallas next week in Green Bay. The Bucs inability to score vs. winning teams has led to the UNDER cashing in eight of their last ten against teams with a winning record. Also, four of the last five between these two clubs played in Tampa has gone by the way of the UNDER. I like this one to go UNDER as well.
