The road team is a perfect 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the Packers are a near-perfect 4-1 at the betting window in their last five trips to Atlanta. The underdog, meanwhile, has cashed in eight of the last 10 meetings between these two teams, so on top of backing Rodgers as an underdog, public bettors might be siding with historical trends as well.
