Oddsmakers Say Aaron Rodgers Gets The Best Of Tom Brady
With Tom Brady playing in the NFC, he will see some of the best quarterbacks in the league. One of those is Aaron Rodgers.
Tom Brady has more weapons this year, a great running back, and the Packers didn't make many moves. I said back in August, maybe Green Bay knew what they had. Last year 13-3, this year so far unbeaten and not looking like they may lose soon.
So, who do the oddsmakers say will win the game between Tampa Bay and Green Bay? According to NBC Sports Boston, here's what betting lines are showing:
Spread: Packers -1.5 (-121), Buccaneers +1.5 (+100) Moneyline: Packers -131, Buccaneers +110 Total: Over 54 points (-115), Under 54 points (-105)
So this is a rare thing. How many times do you read about Tom Brady and he is the underdog? To me, Tom Brady looks like he and the offense haven't gelled yet. We are almost in November, teams need to start getting their thing together though.
Aaron Rodgers looked that way last year with Green Bay. They had a good record but there were some mistakes that Rodgers made that he normally doesn't. Kind of like Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, but they aren't having the season Green Bay is having.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the Packers defense is rated 29th in the league so that gives the advantage to Tampa Bay. Tampa may look sloppy in some of their games but they are one of 3 teams with top 10 offense and defense.
I think the difference will be the quarterbacks. Tom has been throwing a lot of interceptions. One other thing to think about, Green Bay is coming off of a bye, will that make them fresher? This will be one of the best games of the week 6 schedule in my opinion.
