Opening Odds Analysis

Early bettors were happy to jump on the Packers as 4.5-point underdogs, betting New Orleans down to a 3-point favorite at home. The total has also been adjusted slightly, moving down from 52 to 51.5 points. Green Bay is 2-4 SU and 1-5 ATS in its last six games against the New Orleans Saints.

Green Bay News & Notes

Aaron Rodgers is off to an impressive start to the 2020 season with 604 passing yards and six passing touchdowns through Green Bay’s first two games. Aaron Jones also had a career day in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Detroit Lions last Sunday, rushing for 168 yards and two touchdowns while adding 68 receiving yards and a TD reception as well. The Packers are averaging a staggering 42.5 points per game over their 2-0 SU and ATS start.

Green Bay went 14-3 SU and 11-6 ATS last season before losing to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game. With the 49ers dealing with a ton of key injuries and the Packers offense off to such a strong start, Green Bay could be the team to beat in the NFC right now.

New Orleans News & Notes

Alvin Kamara carried the ball 13 times for 79 rushing yards and two touchdowns and caught nine passes for 95 yards against the Las Vegas Raiders. But his strong game was wasted in a 34-24 road loss that saw the Saints fall to 1-1 SU and ATS on the season.

Michael Thomas’s absence was clearly felt in the passing game; Tre’Quan Smith led the wide receiving corps with five catches and 86 receiving yards while no other receiver had more than three catches or 25 receiving yards.

The New Orleans defense didn’t have much of an answer for Derek Carr on Monday night as the Raiders quarterback finished the night with 282 passing yards and three passing touchdowns. That defensive performance doesn’t inspire much confidence heading into this showdown with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

Betting Pick: Green Bay +3

This might be the last time that we see Green Bay as a betting underdog in the regular season. Let’s roll with the Packers until they show us some reason not to.
