GREEN BAY is 16-7 ATS (+8.3 Units) in all lined games over the last 2 seasons.

Prediction:

Aaron Rodgers has been awfully good in his first year as the starter in Green Bay, but he could benefit from more production out of running back Ryan Grant. The Colts have a ton of issues stopping the run, so if Grant can get going, it should open up even more opportunities in the passing game for Rodgers and receivers Donald Driver and Gregg Jennings. As for the Colts, Peyton Manning and the offense played about as well as they have all year in a win last week against the Ravens. The Packers secondary has not played well of late with cornerback Al Harris out because of a spleen injury. This game is going to come down to which team masks their weaknesses on defense the best. While it’s tempting to take Manning over the beat up Green Bay secondary, we hear Harris might play, which would provide a big boost to the Pack. We’ll take the home team getting the points in this one and predict the Packers over the Colts 31-28.
