Then there were 2. Sunday, January 24th, we have NFC Championship Buccaneers Packers betting predictions. Brady Vs Rodgers. The Green Bay Packers will be trying to advance to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2011 when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon. The game will be played at Lambeau Field and is scheduled to begin at 3:05 PM. ET.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds
The Buccaneers brought in Tom Brady in the offseason for the sole purpose of getting to the Super Bowl. So far, the veteran quarterback has done his part, but the team will need to be at their best if they want to get past the Packers on the road.
Tampa Bay didn’t play particularly well offensively, but the team did what it had to do to get the win over the Saints. Brady completed 18 of 33 passes for 199 yards and three total touchdowns. Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones II combined for 125 rushing yards, while Cameron Brate led the team with 50 receiving yards.
The Buccaneers did a good job defensively, holding the Saints to 20 points. They forced four turnovers in that game and will need a similar performance if they want to get the win.
Green Bay Packers Odds
The extra week off didn’t seem to affect the Packers as they cruised to an easy win over the Los Angeles Rams in their last game. They will be hoping for another solid overall performance against the Buccaneers.
Lines for NFC Championship Buccaneers Packers Betting Tips
Aaron Rodgers played well for Green Bay, completing 23 of 36 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns. Aaron Jones rushed for 99 yards and one touchdown, while Jamaal Williams added 65 rushing yards for the Packers. Allen Lazard led the team with 96 receiving yard and one touchdown.
Defensively, Green Bay played well against the Rams, holding them to 18 points. They will be facing a better quarterback this week and will need to play better than they did in their last game to get the win.
The Packers are favored to win this game by 3.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 51.
The Buccaneers played well defensively against the Saints but they were facing a clearly diminished Drew Brees. They won’t have such luck in this game facing the front runner for the MVP award. Brady also didn’t look very sharp against the Saints and will struggle once again in this game, making the Packers the best bet here. Take the Packers and the over in this game.
