The Packers come into today’s game 4-1 overall and 3-2 against the spread while Minnesota is 3-2 overall and 2-3 against the spread. The Vikings are dealing with some big injuries, which play a factor in this one, but the Vikings have still covered in two of the last three in this series.

Both teams are 3-2 on the season while the Pats are just 2-3 against the spread and the Jets are 3-2 ATS. New England is 2-0 ATS on the road while the Jets are 2-0 ATS at home, so something has to give.

The game that bettors are most split on has the Washington Redskins hosting the San Francisco 49ers today at 1PM ET.
