Trends Pointing to UNDER in Packers-Jaguars

Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers NFL

A battle between one of the NFL’s most established franchises and an up-and-coming team with a less than stellar past is set for Week 1 as the Green Bay Packers invade EverBank Field for a date with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Shark Bites
  • The Jaguars are 1-16 SU in their last 17 games against the NFC.
  • The Packers are 0-3 ATS in their last three games against the Jaguars.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Jaguars' last seven games as underdog.

With a revamped defense and a young, star-studded offense, the Jags are in prime position to break out. They were a much different team in their last showing against Green Bay – a 24-15 loss on October 28, 2012. Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 35 touchdowns in his second season last year, and the Allen Robinson-Allen Hurns wide receiver duo is emerging into a nightmare for opposing secondaries.

Green Bay is coming off a rocky 2015 campaign, but any offense led by superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers is going to be deadly. Veteran wideout Jordy Nelson, who missed the entire 2015 season, is back in the fold. Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters after Green Bay’s final preseason game that Nelson will fire on all cylinders despite not playing a snap in the preseason.

The Packers, who are currently 4.5-point favorites, are a solid straight-up wager as road chalk. In their last 13 against when tabbed as faves away from home, the green and gold are 10-3 SU.

Sportsbooks are dealing a total of 48, which will appeal to UNDER bettors. The UNDER is a perfect 6-0 in Green Bay’s last six games with a closing total of 48 or more.
