Packers are Going UNDER at Lambeau Field

The New York Giants (2-2 SU) and Green Bay Packers (2-1 SU) don’t get together often, but they’ll renew acquaintances in the Week 5 edition of Sunday Night Football on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 7-3 SU in its last 10 games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Giants' last five games in Week 5.
  • The Packers are 17-7 ATS in their last 24 games at home after a win at home.

Traditionally, the Packers love playing in the month of October. Dating back to the 2012 campaign, Aaron Rodgers and company have gone 13-1 SU and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 October matchups. Sportsbooks opened the Pack as 7-point favorites with an OVER/UNDER of 49.

Looking for underdog value? Consider the Giants. New York is a sizzling 15-5 ATS in its last 20 contests when tabbed as underdogs of seven points or more.

Totals bettors would be wise to pay attention to this one. Green Bay’s high-flying offense hasn’t been its usual self lately, and UNDER bettors are profiting when they play in Wisconsin. The UNDER is 6-1 in the Packers’ last seven appearances at Lambeau.

Green Bay didn’t have the best start to the 2016 season but rebounded in a big way against division rival Detroit in Week 3. Rodgers and wide receiver Jordy Nelson got back on the same page, as the duo paced the Packers to a 34-27 victory. The green and gold will be well-rested since they’re coming off a bye.

New York collected two wins in a row in the opening weeks, but fell to the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings in weeks 3 and 4. Much was made of the new-look Giants defense, but the unit was lit up by Kirk Cousins and easily dispatched by Sam Bradford. That bodes well for the all-world signal-caller Rodgers.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Sportsbooks, including Bovada, had set the Green Bay Packers as -7-point favorites on the opening line for this contest. The total was hovering around 49 earlier in the week (check for the current over-under lines at MyBookie).
