Betting market: Despite their troubles in Detroit, and this season in general, the Packers are currently the most popular spread bet of the week and one of only three teams with at least 70% of bets as Sunday evening (see live data here). Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Aaron Rodgers is coming off a divisional loss to the Lions. He’s 10-1 straight-up and 8-3 against the spread the week after a divisional loss, winning by 12.9 points per game. Evan Abrams

Rodgers has played in 41 regular-season prime-time games as the Packers starter, 22 of which have been against NFC North opponents (15-7 SU and ATS), while 19 have been against teams outside the division (10-9 SU and 8-10-1 ATS).

This will be Rodgers’ second start in prime time as a favorite with a spread of more than a touchdown against a non-divisional opponent. The first was in 2014, when the Packers beat the Falcons 43-37 as 13.5-point favorites. Abrams
