GREEN BAY PACKERS BETTING TRENDS

The Packers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall, are 7-1 against the number in their last eight games in September, and are 5-1 at the betting window in their last six games coming off a win. They're also 40-19-1 against the spread in their last 60 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous contest.

ATLANTA FALCONS BETTING TRENDS

The Falcons are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games versus NFC opponents and are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games played in September. They're also 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games played in Week 2 of the season.

OUR PREDICTION: The Falcons have improved defensively, even though the numbers still suggest their a bottom-half unit. That said, their offense is primed for a regression and that bore itself out a week ago in Chicago. The Bears have an improved front four but the Falcons looked out of sync offensively under new play-caller Steve Sarkisian. At some point maybe they flip the switch and start rolling again, but it's unlikely they average 30-plus points like they did a year ago under Kyle Shanahan. Speaking of improved defensively, the Packers are finally healthy on that side of the ball and I think they'll give Matt Ryan and Co. fits tonight. I love Rodgers as an underdog, even though he went 0-2 in Atlanta a year ago.
