Betting market: Within the first 12 hours of this line opening, the Packers had moved from -4 to -6 behind about three quarters of the cash.

Since then, the money has gone back down to the 50/50 area and the books have split the difference on the line, dropping Green Bay back to -5 (check out live data here).

The over has received a ton of support, with about three-quarters of bet tickets and more than 95% of dollars, and has moved from 48 to 50.5 since opening. — Mark Gallant

Weather report: This will be one of the colder games of the season so far, with temperatures in the 20s according to our Sports Insights weather bug.

Wind speeds will be approaching 10 mph, but there is no precipitation in the forecast unlike last weekend. — Gallant

Trends to know: The Packers lost in Week 13 at home as 13.5-point favorites with nearly 70% of spread tickets backing them. After burning gamblers, a majority of tickets are on the Falcons at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

However, teams that lose outright as double-digit favorites have historically bounced backed the following week.

Since 2003, teams in this situation have gone 37-23-2 (62%) against the spread, according to our Bet Labs data.

Aaron Rodgers had lost two previous games as a double-digit favorite and covered the next game both times — John Ewing
