Free Pick: Buffalo 7-5 at Tampa Bay 9-3 12/12/21

The Buffalo Bills, widely considered as one of the most best teams in the AFC, is suddenly fighting for their playoff lives. They are the last seed in the AFC playoff hunt and a loss here will really hurt them. On the other hand, a win would be the shot in the arm they need. Meanwhile, the Bucs are a lock for their division and they are playing for that No.1 seed in the NFC. Every game is important if they are to reach that goal. This should be a great battle.

TOTAL TEAM TOTALS:

Tampa Bay: Total Team Points 27.5 The Bucs are averaging 31 points and 404 total yards per game. Tom Brady has unbelievable stats and is having as good a season as he has ever had. In recent weeks, the running game has made some improvement. They are going up against an underrated defense that is allowing only 272 total yards and 16 points for the season. Tampa will score, but I’m thinking Buffalo is going to play a fanatical game. I will take the UNDER on Tampa Bay scoring 27.5 team points.

Buffalo: 24.5 Total Team Points The Bills are 3-4 in their last seven games. They scored only 6 points at Jacksonville and 15 against the Colts. And, on Thanksgiving night they put up 31 in New Orleans. So, which Buffalo team is going to show up. That is what makes betting the Bills a difficult choice. Logic says, they are going to leave it all on the table against Tampa, but will it be enough? I’ll take Buffalo UNDER 24.5 team points.

OVER/UNDER 53.5 Combined Team Point Totals: I just don’t see this being that high scoring. I took the under on both teams for a reason. I think this is going to be a defensive struggle. I will take the UNDER.

POINT SPREAD: Tampa Bay is a 3.5-point favorite The Bills are facing a game that is not a must win, but a victory would definitely give them some breathing room for the rest of the season. The Bucs are not in that kind of desperate situation. Sometimes, that can be a psychological advantage for a team like Buffalo. But, wouldn’t you hate to have to beat Tom Brady on his home field?

Aaron’s Pick: Buffalo +3.5

Papa Dudes Pick: UNDER 53.5 combined team points
