Betting on the Packers?

The Packers are 1-1 SU and 1-1 ATS despite Aaron Rodgers not playing in any preseason game. Green Bay defeated Houston in week 1 and lost to the Ravens last week.

Rodgers commented that he would like to play tonight, but it’s going to be a game-time decision. Head coach Matt LaFleur could give Rodgers the go-ahead to give him some playing time before the regular season starts.

The Packers’ backup QBs, Tim Boyle and DeShone Kizer, couldn’t come up with scores last week, losing 26-13 to Baltimore.
