Panthers (4-9) at Packers (10-3)
Inexperienced Bay Packers
Some confidence does appear to be shifting within the course of the Panthers as the road has dipped to Packers -8 on the morning of this matchup after opening at Packers -9. That could possibly be because of Carolina’s sturdy historical past as an underdog, protecting in seven of their final eight in that setting. Teddy Bridgewater additionally has a robust document as a highway underdog, going 17-2 ATS in his profession. That stated, it is exhausting to think about Carolina actually going toe-to-toe with Aaron Rodgers in the intervening time. Over this three-game successful streak for Inexperienced Bay, the veteran quarterback is making a late MVP push, totaling 11 touchdowns and nil interceptions. In his profession, Rodgers is 20-3 SU and 17-6 ATS at residence in December.
Projected rating: Inexperienced Bay 28, Carolina 17
This complete has largely held true all through the week, solely ticking up a half-point after opening at 51 on Monday. The Panthers have gone 1-7 of their final eight video games, and Carolina’s protection has allowed 30.6 factors per recreation in these seven losses. In the meantime, Inexperienced Bay leads the NFL in scoring offense this season with a median of 31.5 factors per recreation. They’ve scored 30-plus factors in 4 straight video games, which is tied with Tennessee for the longest energetic streak within the NFL. Whereas numerous the numbers level to this recreation trending Over, there is a life like path the place this recreation goes Beneath. If Inexperienced Bay can safe an early lead, they might take their foot off the gasoline some and kill clock whereas they roll to victory.
Projected complete: 45
Davante Adams anytime landing (-188). If Aaron Rodgers is throwing touchdowns, it is most of the time falling into the arms of Adams. He solely has two video games this season the place he hasn’t discovered the tip zone and has scored at the very least one landing in eight straight coming into Week 15.
Mike Davis complete speeding + receiving yards: Over 81.5 (-115). With Christian McCaffrey doubtless sidelined once more (formally listed as uncertain), Mike Davis has himself an intriguing matchup. The Packers have been vulnerable in opposition to the run, permitting 4.6 yards per carry heading into this matchup. Whereas a Inexperienced Bay onslaught of scoring early might drive Carolina to surrender the run recreation a bit, Davis is a confirmed pass-catcher out of the backfield. Over his 10 begins this season, Davis is averaging 81.4 yards per recreation from scrimmage.
Teddy Bridgewater complete passing completions: Over 23.5 (-130). That is proper round Bridgewater’s season common, however has had 5 video games this yr the place he is gone over this complete. I count on Carolina to be enjoying from behind on this matchup, which can drive the offense to drop again and cross most of the time. These added alternatives for Bridgewater pattern favorably to the Over.
Aaron Rodgers complete passing touchdowns: Over 2.5 (+105). The Packers famous person has thrown for 3 or extra touchdowns in seven of his final eight video games. Carolina has additionally allowed 23 passing touchdowns this season, which is the sixth-highest mark within the league.
