NFL Free Pick: Take New England. According to latest NFL trends, New England is 2-8 SU all-time against the Buccaneers in preseason and lost last year, giving 7 on the road, 30-28 (o44) in their third game.

New England quarterback Tom Brady needs to spend more time with his tight ends and receivers. Julian Edelman was the only veteran receiver who caught a pass, while newly-acquired slot receiver Danny Amendola had just one reception for six years. Tampa Bay did take a 3-0 lead early on with the starters in against Baltimore. Josh Freeman played in the first two series and threw for 34 yards on 4-of-7 passing. Vincent Jackson (6-5, 230) is the top target for the Bucs and he reportedly dominated New England's cornerbacks in a 7-on-7 scrimmage.

Expect the Patriots to roll again in this one led by Brady and their running game. Tampa Bay doesn't have the offensive arsenal to make this a close game.
