Atlanta snapped a five-game losing streak by picking up a 34-31 overtime win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 13, while going OVER the betting total of 48. The Falcons finished that affair with 423 total yards of offense, which is important to consider when making your NFL predictions. Former St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson is starting to put things together in a injury-riddled campaign, as he ran for 84 yards on 23 carries last week. Atlanta is 0-3 SUATS on a grass field this season, with the OVER going 2-1 in that situation.
The Falcons need quarterback Matt Ryan to break out of his funk in this series, as he’s failed to surpass 200 passing yards in any of his four games against the Packers—tossing five touchdowns and five interceptions in those affairs. Atlanta may take to the ground due to Jackson averaging 91.8 yards in six career contests against the Packers. It’s important to point out that these two teams haven’t played in the state of Wisconsin since 2008.
Green Bay is currently third in the NFC North with a 5-6-1 record, as it looks to improve upon its 15-13 SU all-time advantage in this series. The Packers have won 12 consecutive regular-season games at Lambeau Field that were played Dec. 1 or later, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NFL betting lines. All eyes are currently on the pro football injury report, as there’s a chance that quarterback Aaron Rodgers could return to the field after missing the last five games with a broken collarbone. Green Bay is 6-2 SUATS in the last four weeks of the regular season since 2011.
The Packers’ 4,794 yards of offense this season are the second most through 12 games in franchise history. Green Bay ranks second in the league in scoring offense in December/January since 2009—averaging 31.1 points per game, trailing only the New England Patriots at 31.9 over that span.
Sports bettors will likely back the Packers due to their 15-6-1 ATS mark at home versus teams with a losing road record.
