Bet on the NFLNFL football odds handicappers will have their choice of a winless Tampa Bay team hosting a football betting enigma that excels against the weaker teams of the NFL. NFL football odds players have seen the Green Bay Packers fail to score a quality football betting win so far and this matchup would continue that pattern should they prevail.
The Tampa Bay Bucs have a NFL football odds record of 0-7 straight up and 1-6 against the football betting board. The Bucs are coming off their bye week and last played on October 25 when they suffered a 7-35 online betting loss to the New England Patriots as 13.5-point home dogs.
The Bucs rank 28th with the NFL football odds in both total offense and defense and will switch to rookie Josh Freeman at quarterback on Sunday. Freeman claims to be ready for his debut start with the NFL football odds.
“Obviously, its something that’s very exciting to me and its something I’ve been working towards my entire career, and its not something I’m taking lightly,” said Freeman. Head coach Raheem Morris said Freeman will play the rest of the season with the NFL football odds and that the Bucs won’t rotate quarterbacks.
“This is a different deal,” said Morris. “This is Freeman.”
The Green Bay Packers have a NFL football odds record of 4-3 both straight up and against the spread. The Packers are coming off the second of two humiliations to the Minnesota Vikings as they were defeated by their old quarterback, Brett Favre, last week 26-38 as 3.5-point home favorites. The Packers now have a NFL football odds record of 4-3 both straight up and against the spread. The Packers have nice stats with the NFL football odds as they rank 9th in total offense and 5th in total defense. They have beaten just one team with a winning record, however, which was the 4-3 Chicago Bears on opening day at home.
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a bit banged up as he has been sacked a league leading 31 times including 6 last Sunday. He was to miss practice time this week but will be ready to start Sunday.
“I don’t think its going to change the way he plays,” said head coach Mike McCarthy. “I think they’re injuries that just need to settle down a little bit.” The Packers have covered 14 out of their last 20 on the road but have paid out in just 3 out of their last 11 games at Tampa Bay.
