NFL Week 3 picks, predictions:

Draft Kings: Take the under in Buccaneers vs. Packers game

Erik Buchinger writes: "The over/under has been driven down to 45, but this still is not low enough. The Buccaneers have shown to be a far better defensive team than on offense in the early going. Tampa Bay does not look good enough offensively through the first two games to be trusted, while the defense should limit Aaron Rodgers and the new pass catchers at home enough to keep this total below the number."

Betting Pros: Take the Packers with the points vs. Buccaneers

It writes: "Davante Adams was a more significant loss than some of us expected. Still, overall, the Packers will get everything sorted out with their younger players and get Allen Lazard back on the offensive end. I’m not worried about how this offense will perform as the season progresses." Go with the Buccaneers on moneyline vs. Packers

Nikola Velickovic writes: "The Bucs are our favorites here because Green Bay still adjusts to the new circumstances and the fact that the receiving corps is weaker than the backfield. On the other side, we have the Bucs, who are already in full speed, which is why we bet on the hosts to win."
