Let’s take a closer look at these two teams and we’ll start with the underdog Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers are 3-2-1 overall and 2-4 ATS. The Packers have been hurt all season with injuries and have a less than 100% Aaron Rodgers, but they have had time to rest everyone and get back two of their top receivers in Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison back this week. Green Bay is 2-4 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS after a win, 0-2 ATS on the road and 1-1 ATS as an underdog.
Aaron Rodgers leads the team in passing with 1,997 yards for 12 touchdowns and 1 interception. Jamaal Williams leads the team in rushing with 224 yards and 0 touchdowns. Davante Adams leads the team in receiving with 47 receptions for 557 yards and 6 touchdowns.
Green Bay is averaging 24.67 points per game which ranks 16th in the NFL. They are averaging 103.67 rushing yards per game which ranks 20th in the NFL. They are averaging 317.33 passing yards per game which ranks 4th in the NFL.

Los Angeles Rams
The Rams are 7-0 overall and 4-3 ATS. The Rams are clearly the best team in the NFC if not the NFL and should be the favorites to win the Super Bowl this season. Los Angeles is 4-3 ATS, 3-3 ATS after a win, 2-1 ATS at home and 4-3 ATS as a favorite.
Jared Goff leads the team in passing with 2,130 yards for 14 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Todd Gurley leads the team in rushing with 686 yards and 11 touchdowns. Robert Woods leads the team in receiving with 41 receptions for 602 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Rams are allowing 18.29 points per game which ranks 4th in the NFL. They are allowing 100.14 rushing yards per game which ranks 12th in the NFL. They are allowing 227.29 passing yards per game which ranks 9th in the NFL.
Rams remain undefeated, but Packers get the cover
The Packers are starting to get healthy which means a good offense will once again be elite. The Rams have arguably one of the best offenses in the NFL and their defense has also played well this season, but with a healthier Packers offense, I believe that the Packers will put up some points. I look for this to be a shootout with the Rams getting the win, but the Packers getting the cover. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
