Sports fans in London, England will get the opportunity to enjoy American football this Sunday when the New England Patriots take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Patriots stomped the Titans last week 59-0 in Week 6. Tom Brady threw for 380 yards with six touchdowns for New England, while Randy Moss caught eight passes for 129 yards and three touchdowns. The Pats easily covered as 9-point favorites.

The Bucs fell to 0-6 on the season after suffering a 28-21 defeat to Carolina last Sunday as a 3-point underdog. Carnell Williams rushed for 77 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries, while quarterback threw for 147 yards and an interception for Tampa.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Patriots 15-point favorites over the Bucs on Sunday. The over/under total for this game has been set at 44.5.

It’s tough to factor in how the trip to London will affect this game. But when you look at this matchup from purely a football standpoint, the Patriots should absolutely roll over the Bucs, just as they did last week against the Titans.

New England is far and away the superior team in every fact of the game. As long as Brady can build off the momentum he had last week, then the Patriots shouldn’t suffer a letdown in London.

Tampa Bay’s defense has struggled all season and its offense hasn’t been much better. There’s a quarterback controversy brewing and if a team doesn’t have confidence in its signal caller, then how are they going to overcome a trip overseas against the Patriots?

Our NFL Week 7 Free Pick for this matchup is: NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS –15.5 and OVER 44.5.
