The Green Bay Packers have a record of 3-2 straight up and 2-3 with the pro football betting lines. The Pack has gone under the total in 4 out of 5 games. Green Bay is coming off a 16-13 loss at Washington in which quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion.
Washington kicked a field goal at the gun to win the game after Green Bay’s Mason Crosby missed from 48 and 52 yards, with the latter attempt banging off the upright. Green Bay has already lost feature running back Ryan Grant for the season which has put all the pressure on Rodgers.
Miami has a record of 2-2 both straight up and with the NFL gambling odds. Miami was humiliated two weeks ago in a 41-14 Monday Night loss to New England in which their special teams cost them 21 points and cost its coordinator his job after the game.
The Miami offense has been sluggish and quarterback Chad Henne has been mediocre with a 5/4 touchdown/interception ratio.
The key to this game is Rodgers’ health and status; there is no other way to describe his importance to the Packers, who have become near totally reliant on his ability to carry the offense. Miami has played their best football on the road and should be refreshed and well prepared for this one.
Miami has gotten the money in 5 out of their last 7 football gambling matchups when coming off a failure to cover the spread. Green Bay has paid out in 6 of their last 8 games when coming off a straight up loss. Miami has gone under the total in just 5 out of their last 19 games when coming off a straight up loss.
