The Green Bay Packers have bounced back from a midseason slump to win three of their past four and that streak could continue in Week 15 if history holds true. The Packers are 12-2 SU and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games against the AFC West and they will visit the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
The Packers defense has been tearing it up lately as they have only allowed 15.6 points per game in their last five games with only one team surpassing the 20-point plateau. Green Bay’s pass defense has been stepping up as they have only allowed 216.5 passing yards per game and less than a touchdown during their past five games.
If the Packers want to beat the Raiders, they will need to somehow stop Khalil Mack. The linebacker has nine sacks in the past three weeks, including a ridiculous five-sack performance last week against the Broncos.
