Week 9 Packers vs. Buccaneers NFL Predictions

Blow-out Alert in the Battle of the Bay’s – Packers vs. Buccaneers

Green Bay Packers (4-3 SU & ATS) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-7 SU, 1-6 ATS)
Sunday, November 8 – 1 PM ET
BetUS NFL Betting Lines: GREEN BAY -9.5, Total 43.5

In the BetUS NFL football betting odds, the Packers are listed as a 9.5-point favorite, with a posted total of 43.5 points.


Here are some NFL football betting trends as they relate to this matchup:

GB has played four of its last six games OVER the total
GB has covered 14 of its last 21 road games
GB has lost six of its last eight road games SU
TB has covered one of its last nine games
TB has lost its last 11 games SU
TB has played four of its last six home games OVER the total


TB has won and covered four of the last six meetings
GB has won 16 of the last 24 meetings SU
Six of the last eight meetings have gone UNDER the total
TB has covered five of the last seven meetings as the home team
TB has won six of the last seven meetings SU as the home team
Four of the last five meetings in Tampa have gone UNDER the total

There have been very few things as tragic as watching the demise of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season. Raheem Morris, hired most likely as a result of the Rooney Rule, has come into the head coaching position with very little in the way of any real experience, fired his offensive coordinator during the pre-season, and has promptly been non-competitive. Between all three quarterbacks – Byron Leftwich, Josh Johnson and Josh Freeman – the Bucs appear to have a little “affirmative action” thing going, but the result has not been much action on the scoreboard, and not much in the NFL betting lines. Well, not enough to overcome a horrid defense. Football Picks

Morris is supposed to be a defensive “mind,” and if so, we don’t know where that mind went. Tampa Bay’s transition into different pass coverage has produced 16 TD passes for the opposition, as well as 8.7 yards an attempt. They have literally given up 3.2 yards more PER ATTEMPT than their opponents. The run defense is no better (4.7 ypc allowed). They have been outgained by a hundred yards a game.

Leftwich completed 54%, then was removed for Johnson, who was intercepted eight times against 125 attempts. Now they will turn to Freeman, the first-round draft choice who the team desperately wanted to keep on the bench until he was ready. He is not ready, but he is going to play anyway, which is a factor to consider when evaluating NFL betting lines.

Freeman, in his limited action in the pre-season, as well as the last game against New England, has had that “deer in the headlights” look about him, so expect that he will make plenty of mistakes in this, his first start. The Packers have intercepted 13 passes this season; if 3-4 alignments cross up people like Peyton Manning, imagine what they are going to do to Freeman, who doesn’t even have an opportunity to get “coached up” much from the staff.

The only thing that might be able to keep this from becoming a total fiasco would be if the Bucs got a whole lot of pressure on Aaron Rodgers, who’s been sacked 31 times. But Tampa Bay only has eleven sacks in seven games, and it looks like Green Bay could be in better shape this week with Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher back on the offensive line.

The Packers have taken full advantage of the weak teams, bating the Rams by 19 points, Detroit by 26 and Cleveland by 28. They have the type of team to do that, because they can score, they can torture a rookie (or near-rookie) quarterback and because they have the kind of weaknesses that are hard for personnel-starved teams to exploit. We are going to lay the points with the Packers, the 9.5-point favorite in the BetUS NFL betting lines.
