Buccaneers activate Vea off IR, rule Brown (knee) out for Sunday against the Packers
Fri, Jan 22nd 1:47pm EST
The Buccaneers have floated between +3 and +3.5 point road underdogs against the Packers, per BettingPros consensus odds. The spread is currently at +3.5 and has not moved as a result of Brown's and Vea's news. This suggests that there is already respected money on the Buccaneers, and oddsmakers likely figure they would be flooded with more Tampa Bay money if they moved the line to +4. The most interesting line movement in the last 48 hours is in the total which currently stands at 52. This is the highest the total has been all week, after opening at 51 and dipping briefly to 50.5 earlier in the week. Both the absence of Brown and the presence of Vea would in theory make for a lower-scoring game, but thus far bettors have backed the over with more regularity.
