Green Bay has improved metrics but that is yet to be reflected with Pro Football betting profits. Despite the sluggish start the Pack is right on the heels of Minnesota for the NFC North Division lead. Balanced against that is the remarkable start by the Rams. Los Angeles is undefeated, in the black, and with rankings indicative of a top contender. Starting with quarterback Jared Goff, Los Angeles has one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL. Defensively LA continues to improve and impress. But against Aaron Rodgers and the Pack they will certainly be tested.

Green Bay Packers
Green Bay is 3-2-1 straight up but just 2-4 against the spread with five of their games going over the total. Last time out the Pack scored a 33-20 win over San Francisco but failed to cover as nine-point chalks. Following that Green Bay was on a bye week. After last year’s failure to make the playoffs massive changes on the coaching staff and front office took place. Green Bay ranks an improved fourth in the NFL for total offense and eighth for total defense.
Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles is 7-0 straight up and 4-3 vs. odds with four of their games going under the total. Last week the Rams bombed out the 49ers 39-10 at San Francisco. Overall the Rams rank third in the NFL for scoring offense and fourth for scoring defense. LA is running away with the lead in the NFC West.
Stats to Consider
Green Bay has been a subpar Pro Football betting value as a road dog. On the whole the Packers have failed to cover five of their last seven games getting points on the road. Further, the Pack has gone over the total in 11 of their last 12 in that situation. Contrarily the Rams have shown improved wagering value as a home favorite. LA has lost just one of their last six games vs. the spread laying points at Memorial Coliseum. Further, just two of their last eight games as a home chalk have gone under the total.
Team vs. Team
Green Bay has dominated this sportsbook online series with the Rams. To be exact the Pack has won and covered five straight games with Los Angeles. Just two of the last six meetings between these teams have gone over the total. Extending that success for Green Bay is their away game mark against the Rams. For example, Packers have paid in six of their last eight away tilts with the Rams. This series has failed to clear the total in the last five meetings not held in Green Bay.
Matchup to Watch
Above all two great quarterbacks square off here with Rodgers and Goff. The Pro Football betting matchup advantage is with LA’s top ranked ground attack. In comparison Green Bay ranks 20th for rushing production. Of great concern is the Packers ranking of 22nd in the NFL against the rush.
