3 units on Game Total UNDER 47 -115 (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

These two teams certainly had designs on the playoffs when the season started. Both have evolved into candidates for "most dissapointing" team of the year. And it's only getting worse, not better. The Jags have now lost six of their last seven, and the Packers have now lost five of their last six. The Jags look like a team that has quit, or at least had their confidence shaken, especially on the offensive end. They simply have no downfield threat to exploit what has turned into a Packers weakness, the secondary. The Jags offense has been bad, scoring just 53 points in the last four weeks. In over two months of football, they have reached 20 points just once, against the 0-13  Lions. Aaron Rodgers may be hitting the wall for the Packers. As the pressure has mounted on him to carry the team, he has faltered. He threw just five INT's in his first nine games, but has now thrown six in the last four games. The Packers have been able to get their points, but they have been doing so playing from behind. It is more likely that Ryan Grant will be called upon more here, as the Jags offense isn't doing anything, and the Packers can play the running game to take the pressure off of Rogers. I look for this one to be tight, and low scoring. The Jags have played eight of their last eleven as a home dog to the UNDER, and that gets the call here.
