You can make a case for either of these teams in a pick em spot, as both the Bucs and Rams look solid through two games. The Rams look a little sharper on defense up to this point and they have an underrated crowd behind them. However, you’re getting the Buccaneers and this explosive offense in a pick em spot, the defending champs who have won 10 straight games overall when including last years playoff run. The Buccaneers are first in points per game through two contests and Brady looks to be in great form as he’s spreading the ball all over the place. I simply trust the Bucs more.
