According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Washington is a slight favorite at home in this game, as the Redskins are getting odds of -1 point against the Packers. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 45.5 points. These two meet today at 4:40PM ET on FOX.

Lacy has been a mystery this season for the Packers (10-6, 9-7 ATS). After rushing for over 1,100 yards in his first two seasons with Green Bay, he had just 758 yards and three touchdowns this season, often finding himself in the dog house of coach Mike McCarthy. However, typically when he was running well this season, Green Bay was winning. The Packers were 4-1 this year when Lacy had 85 yards or more on the ground.

Today the Packers face the Redskins (9-7, 9-7 ATS), who come into this game ranked 26th in the NFL in run defense, allowing 122.6 yards per game on the ground. Oddsmakers have given Lacy a modest over/under for this game. His rushing total is listed at 56.5 yards. Green Bay will split carries between Lacy and James Starks and tend to run with the back that is being more productive. Lacy has had at least 11 carries in his last four games, so he will be given a chance to produce, he just must make something with that chance. Lacy has had at least 57 yards in six games this season. Despite their rough overall numbers, Washington has been better against the run as of late, holding opposing backs to under 100 yards in five of their last six games.
