Buccaneers vs Packers Against The Spread Pick
Sunday Afternoon at 3:05PM EST at Lambeau Field
The Pick: Buccaneers +3.5
Why bet the Buccaneers?
Tom Brady: What is there to say about the undisputed GOAT of the NFL. The postseason master will be playing his 44th playoff game and this will be his record 14th Conference Championship Game appearance. For reference, the players tied for second place have played in seven Conference Championship Games. The 2020 season answered many questions as to who was most responsible for the previous Patriots dynasty. Move over Bill Belichick, Tom Brady is the answer to that question.
Packers wrong end of historical and recent splits: There are multiple trends working against the Packers in this matchup. Dating back to 2014, they have lost three straight Conference Championship Games. They also have not performed well against other playoff caliber opponents this season, going just 2-2 including last week’s win against the Rams sans their best player, Aaron Donald. That includes a 38-10 loss to these Buccaneers in a wholly non-competitive game. It is also difficult to forget how outmatched these Packers were in last year’s Conference Championship Game, another blowout loss when they faced higher end competition in a win or go home spot.

If you are looking to wager on a game, but want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Packers -3.5 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread play, the Packers can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds.
The Buccaneers can be bet on to win the game outright while getting odds. In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -180 on the Packers and expect to get about +150 on the Buccaneers.
