NFL Free Pick: GB/JAC
The Green Bay Packers look to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they travel to Florida this Sunday to take on the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Packers -2 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 45 total points.
Key Trend: The Jaguars are just 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games, while the Packers are 11-4-1 against the spread in their last 16 games on the road.
Key Stat: Green Bay is averaging 27.3 points a game this season, while Jacksonville is allowing 22.5 PPG. The Packers are also averaging 232.8 passing yards a game, while the Jags are allowing 204.9 yards through the air this season.
Game Outlook: Neither of these teams have looked very impressive the past two weeks, but the Packers still have something to play for. Believe it or not, they could still win the NFC North, although they would need to win out and have the Bears and Vikings to start losing – in a hurry. The key to this game will be Green Bay’s potent passing attack versus a banged up Jacksonville secondary. Aaron Rodgers should be able to move the ball against a depleted Jags’ defense and if the Packers can get any pressure on David Garrard, then they should pull out a close victory. Jacksonville might have home field advantage, but weather won’t be a factor and the Jags’ offensive line has played so poorly this year that they’ve had trouble moving the ball.
