Fade Aaron Rodgers, Packers As Double-Digit Underdogs in Buffalo

The NFC North is upside down right now. 

Not only are the Minnesota Vikings 5-1 right now, but the Green Bay Packers are 3-4 with a healthy Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay hasn’t been able to find an offensive rhythm all season, and are in serious danger of having a losing season or even missing the playoffs. 

Things are not only weird record wise, but also at the sportsbooks. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are 10.5-point underdogs to the Buffalo Bills this week – which is the same spread as the Eagles and Steelers. 

It’s the largest underdog Rodgers has ever been, and the first time he’s ever been a double-digit underdog. While it seems wild to not take Rodgers as a10-point underdog, it’s completely fair this week. 

Green Bay is below average in nearly every major offensive statistic. Most surprisingly, the Packers are 24th in yards per pass. It’s evident the Packers don’t have a deep threat and Buffalo will be able to man up and send a lot of pressure at Rodgers. 

The Packers wanted to be a run-first team, but they are just 14th in yards per carry. It’s a very average team against one of the best teams in the league – oh, and Josh Allen. 

The Cheeseheads are 25th in opponent yards per carry. While that doesn’t mean much for Devin Singletary, Josh Allen will have a field day. 

Last week’s performance against the Washington Commanders didn’t inspire a lot of confidence – as the offense only put up 14 of the teams 21 points. Now, they’ll be on the road against an elite team…I just don’t trust the Packers.
