Book it: Today’s free NFL pick (Packers at Bucs)

I’m 4-1-1 in college football after going 2-0 this week (BYU moneyline and Alabama -4.5).

Today marks the debut of my NFL picks, which I’ve been looking to start up but held off for a little bit.

Aaron Rodgers and the 4-0 Packers are -2 at Tom Brady and the 3-2 Buccaneers. The moneyline is Packers -134, which is my pick today.

Rodgers has been playing tremendously, with 13 TDs and no INTs while completing 70.5 percent. I love the way he’s playing, and you know he’d love to take down Tom Brady in a battle of all-time great QBs.

Brady is playing well, with 12 TDs and 4 INTs while completing 64.3 percent. He’s still clearly very good, but he’s not better than Rodgers right now.

The Buccaneers have been up and down, coming off a 20-19 loss to the Bears after struggling defensively in a 38-31 win over rookie Justin Herbert and the Chargers.

If Herbert can have a big day against the Bucs’ defense, it’s a given that Rogers will have a big day.

Pick: Packers moneyline -134

Prediction: Packers 30, Buccaneers 27

Season record (college): 4-1-1
