GREEN BAY over Minnesota by 6
Packers QB Willis Reed, err Aaron Rodgers, pulled off the greatest comeback in Green By history last week when he came limping out of the locker room at halftime to lead his troops from a 20-0 deficit to a stirring 24-23 comeback win over the Bears on Sunday night. The Leader of the Pack proved why he is the league’s highest paid player. He also showed his dominance in division play, a neighborhood clearly owned by Mr. Rodgers as alluded to by Marc in his column: 42-14 SU and 37-19 ATS, including 11-0 SU and 9-2 ATS at home during the first six games of the season. Rodgers is also especially adept in division play when coming off a division contest as confirmed by his 15-2 SU and 13-4 ATS mark, including in these games when facing an opponent coming off a win in its last game. Granted, Minny has been mighty themselves under head coach Mike Zimmer, especially at the pay window where he owns a 45-21-2 ATS career mark – but only 13-11 SU and 12-11-1 ATS in division play. With Rodger’s adversary, Kirk Cousins, just in games priced less than 3 points (either favored or dog) when coming off a win, we’re on the Knicks - make that the Packers - in their best role today.
