GREEN BAY over Min­nesota by 6

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

The good news for Green Bay is the fact that the Pack are 5-0 SU and 4-0-1 ATS all-time in reg­u­lar sea­son games on Satur­days, and are 22-3 SU and 15-82 ATS in their home fi­nales. How­ever, th­ese strong trends hold lit­tle mean­ing if you have noth­ing to play for, which is now the case af­ter At­lanta’s win on Mon­day night. That out­come of­fi­cially elim­i­nated the Pack from the post-sea­son con­tention. Us­ing Aaron Rodgers in this game now would seem ir­re­spon­si­ble, but we’re sure the Packer vet­eran will try to make a strong case to Mike McCarthy to get the start against the team that crushed his col­lar­bone ear­lier this sea­son. Mean­while, the Vik­ings still have plenty on the line, as they are in an all-out chase with the Ea­gles for the top seed in the NFC, and won’t let up now. Un­for­tu­nately, Min­nesota is 0-6 SUATS all-time in di­vi­sion games on Satur­days. The bot­tom line, though, is we just can’t make a move here un­til Rodgers’ play­ing sta­tus is known. If he plays, we’re all-in with the Pack.
