The Packers improved their NFC-leading record to 10-3 with last weekend’s 45-30 demolition of the visiting Chicago Bears, but have fallen to defeat in each of their past two road dates. The Ravens return home riding a two-game losing streak after dropping a 24-22 decision in Cleveland last Sunday, but cling to a narrow lead atop the AFC North standings.

With injuries in both dressing rooms generating plenty of uncertainty, there has been plenty of movement on the point spread. The Packers faded dramatically in the hours after opening as 7-point favourites, dipping to -4. However, with the team enjoying the backing of 94% of sports bettors, Green Bay has steadily rebounded, and is now pegged as a -115 bet to cover as 5.5-point chalk. The total has also wildly fluctuated since opening at 46.0, dipping as low as 42.5 before rebounding to its present position at 44.0.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Sunday afternoon’s matchup at M&T Bank Stadium marks the first meeting between these two teams since November 2017. The Packers hold the overall historical edge, avoiding consecutive defeats while going 7-3 straight up in 10 dates since 1983. Low scoring has also been commonplace when these two teams meet, with the total topping 40 just once during the current 3-0 run for the OVER.

The Packers have produced uneven straight up results on the road this season, going 4-3 in seven outings, but have racked up a league-leading 11-2 against the spread record. The Ravens have won outright in five of six on home turf, and have also claimed outright victories in five of their past six while pegged as home underdogs.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers turned in another impressive offensive performance in last week’s victory over the Bears. Aaron Rodgers connected on four scoring passes for the second time in three outings. The Green Bay pivot remains hampered by a fractured pinkie toe that kept him from participating in practice on both Wednesday and Thursday, but is expected to be ready for Sunday. However, Pro Bowl defensive lineman Kenny Clark has been added to the team’s Covid-19 list. Clark has racked up four sacks and 42 tackles in 13 starts, and must produce two negative tests results 24 hours apart before he can rejoin the lineup.

Baltimore Ravens

Forced to leave last weekend’s loss to the Browns with an ankle injury, quarterback Lamar Jackson did not participate in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. In addition to creating uncertainty at the sportsbooks, Jackson’s questionable status complicates matters for an underachieving Ravens offence that has averaged just 16.6 points per game during a middling 2-3 straight up run. The long list of injuries in Baltimore also includes receivers Marquise Brown, who remains sidelined by an undisclosed illness, and Sammy Watkins, who returned to practice on Thursday after being limited by a knee injury on Wednesday.
