Packers vs. Giants Total Prediction
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense struggled mightily last Sunday night in San Francisco but will a trip to East Rutherford cure what ails the Packers? Or is 45 points still too high for this weekend’s Packers-Giants matchup at 1:00 p.m. ET?

Green Bay Packers Fantasy Spin
Aaron Rodgers completed 20-of-33 passes for 104 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the 49ers. This was another rough game for Rodgers, who was held without a touchdown before the bye. He was under constant pressures, taking five sacks and checking down most of the night, where he managed 3.2 YPA. Rodgers ended up getting rested with four minutes left in the fourth quarter. Over the last three games, Rodgers is averaging only 166 yards and has just two touchdowns. The good news is Rodgers has a get-right matchup with the Giants in Week 13.
New York Giants Fantasy Spin
Golden Tate (concussion) is out for Week 13 against the Packers. Tate was concussed on a late touchdown in last week's loss to Chicago. The G-Men head into Sunday's game extremely shorthanded on offense with Tate, Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) all slated to miss Week 13. Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer will serve as New York's top receiving trio against the Packers.
NFL Betting Trends
The over is 16-5 in the Packers’ last 21 games versus an opponent with a losing record.
The under is 10-3 in the Giants’ last 13 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
The Packers won’t struggle to the same degree that they did offensively last week in San Francisco, nor will they allow the Giants to move the ball at will like they did versus the 49ers. That said, there are some serious problems with the Green Bay offense. Most of the issues have to do with the offensive line, which has turned Rodgers into a short-throwing, check-down machine at times this season. With wind gusts over 10 mph expected in New Jersey this weekend, I like the combined score to stay under the total.
