Top NFL predictions for the Championship Round
One of the top Championship Round NFL picks the model recommends: Packers vs. Buccaneers goes over the total of 52. Aaron Rodgers is 37 and Tom Brady is 43, but both are coming off eye-popping seasons statistically.
Rodgers has thrown for 21 touchdowns while throwing just one interception during the team's ongoing seven-game winning streak. Brady has averaged 318.8 yards per game during Tampa Bay's six-game winning streak and has thrown 16 touchdowns with just one interception during that span.
The Packers struggled and only scored 10 points during the Week 6 matchup against the Buccaneers, but that was Davante Adams' first week back from a groin injury. The model predicts that Rodgers throws two touchdowns, while Adams hauls in eight receptions for 90 yards and a score.
With the combination of two explosive offenses and two quarterbacks used to playing in potentially inclement weather, SportsLine's model says there's value in backing the over.
