Betting Impact:

Despite the 50/50 chance that Antonio Brown plays, the spread has moved once again in Tampa Bay's favor. After opening at Green Bay -3.5, the spread has gone from -3 to -3.5 a number of times, and is currently at -3, per BettingPros consensus odds. Arians did say that Brown would not need to log any practices in order to be cleared to play Sunday, so it is likely that they rest Brown the rest of the week and see how he is feeling on Sunday morning and during walkthroughs. Brown averaged 60.4 YPG in eight games played with Tampa Bay this season. If Brown is ultimately ruled out, look for this line to head back to Green Bay -3.5 at most sportsbooks.
