The New England Patriots are one win away from clinching the top spot in the AFC East heading in to their game against the Green Bay Packers this weekend. New England has won five straight to climb to 11-2, two games ahead of the New York Jets for first place, but it won’t be easy to seal the division lead against its second NFC North opponent in as many weeks.

Online Sports Betting Odds: New England – 10

The Packers are coming off a brutal 7-3 loss to the Detroit Lions, a game in which quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion, meaning he could miss this week. Rodgers is listed as questionable and should he not be able to play, this one could get ugly in a hurry.

Why To Bet On The Packers

Green Bay is one game back of the Chicago Bears for first place in the NFC North with three games to go, including a huge season finale against their rivals at Lambeau Field. In order for that game to mean anything the Packers will need to keep pace with the Bears over the next couple of weeks, which will include taking down the same Patriots’ team that blew away Chicago 36-7 last week. If there was a team from the NFC that could slow Tom Brady and the New England offense, it would be the Packers and their third-ranked pass defense. However, with snowy conditions forecasted, Green Bay will need a stronger effort from their run defense, which is allowing an average of 117.3 yards per game. The Packers could keep this one close, but much of that depends on the health of Rodgers.

Why To Bet On The Patriots

Even with Rodgers in the line up it is nearly impossible to bet against the Patriots. New England has won five straight games, including back-to-back blowout victories by a combined 81-10 score. What makes those two wins even more impressive is that they came against teams with a combined 18-8 record. Brady has made his case for a second MVP with 3,398 yards and 29 touchdowns, and that should continue this week. The Patriots rank 31st in the league against the pass, but that shouldn’t be a problem with the cold, snowy conditions and Rodgers unable to go. New England held the Jets and Bears to a combined 10 football betting points.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Patriots have been dominant the past few weeks, gaining confidence with every game and showing improvement with it. New England will come out firing on all cylinders against a Packers’ team that will be without their best player, and if the Green Bay defense can’t weather the storm early on, this one could get ugly in a hurry.
