1 unit on Green Bay PICK (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: PUSH
The Green Bay Packers looked like a horror show in the first half of their opener vs. the Bears. The Bears had it all going on both sides of the ball, even before Aaron Rodgers left the game with a knee injury. The momentum changed when Rodgers came out of the locker room in the third quarter, and everyone knows what happened from there was that one of the all-time great QBs did the impossible on one leg, leading the Packers back from the dead. Rodgers may not be at full strength this week, but as we saw last week that may not be an issue. The Packers are 51-8 SU with Rodgers at home in his last 59 starts, which is a lot to overcome. Minnesota did not out-play San Francisco last week as each team went for just about the same yards, but four 49ers turnovers were the difference. Rodgers seldom turns the ball over, and Green Bay with Rodgers is better than SF, and this one is at Lambeau. Back the Packers.
