1.5 units on Game Total OVER 48 -105 (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: WIN
The Green Bay Packers went through a horrible stretch of games where they went from 6-0 with everyone hinting Super Bowl, to 7-4 and everyone wondering what was wrong. The offense had broken down, and the Packers looked to be struggling just to even make the playoffs. Mike McCarthy made a decision that will likely save their season. He had been the Packers' play caller for years, but passed the job off to the OC this year. Last week McCarthy took over the play calling and Green Bay turned in a very strong offensive game, with great balance running and throwing. Oakland is a vastly-improved team and have a QB in Derek Carr who is advancing the offense. The Raiders have gone from 15.8 points per game last season to 23 ppg this season - their highest output since the 2010 season. The problem has been a defense that has allowed over 25 ppg. The Packers offense is rebounding with McCarthy back calling plays, while Oakland now has some skilled receivers and a QB that can deliver the ball. Make the play on the OVER.
