NFL Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Patriots are 8.5-point favorites over the Bucs, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 43.5 points. Tampa Bay lost last Sunday to New Orleans but did cover as a 3-point home favorite, while New England won but failed to cover as 13-point favorite against the Jets.

NFL Free Pick: Take Tampa Bay. According to latest NFL trends, the Bucs are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine road games, 5-2 ATS in their last seven games in Week 3, and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games in September. On the other side, the Patriots are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.

The Bucs have been a disaster on and off the field in the first two weeks of the season. There have been questions about Josh Freeman's leadership abilities and whether or not coach Greg Schiano is a fit. But one thing has been obvious in the first two weeks of the season: Tampa Bay's defense has been stellar and New England has struggled to move the ball without Rob Gronkowski. Even with their issues, the Bucs should cover today.
