The Packers were coming in as a -4.5 favorite on the road in Jacksonville.  While some books were offering Green Bay at -5.5, one of the more sharper books monitored by had the line only move a half point up from -4, a strong indication that the oddsmakers believe Jacksonville at the very least will cover.  We say this because nearly three quarters of the action was coming Green Bay’s way on the point spread.  In fact, the Packers are the most wagered on side for Week 1 NFL.

The Packers are 5-1 Against The Spread in their last 6 road games.

Aaron Rodgers had his lowest completion percentage (60.7) and passing yards per game (238.8) since taking over as the starting quarterback in Green Bay.

Green Bay owns the second-best record (104-55-1) in the NFL -- behind only New England -- over the past 10 seasons.
