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.
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
