Betting market: The Packers have been way more popular, and sportsbooks apparently haven’t been able to keep up with the action. Some books have moved from +4 to +3.5, while other have gone from +3.5 to +3.

With Green Bay commanding more than 70% of bets as of writing (see live data here), it’ll be interesting to see whether the Packers can move past the key number of +3 to +2.5. Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Aaron Rodgers is 38-20 against the spread vs. the NFC North. This is just the seventh time he’s been listed as an underdog against a division rival. In the previous six games, he’s 0-5-1 straight-up and 3-3 ATS. John Ewing

Rodgers will make his 13th start inside of a dome since the 2014 season (including playoffs). The Packers averaged only 22.1 points per game in the previous 12 games and are just 4-8 straight-up and 5-7 ATS, failing to cover the spread by 6.3 points per game.

The defense allowed an average of 29.8 points in those 12, including 30 or more points in seven of them. Evan Abrams
