Click here To Watch LiveStream
Two of the top quarterbacks in the NFL square off Sunday at 1 p.m. ET when the Green Bay Packers host the Atlanta Falcons. Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan are used to meeting under different circumstances, with their clubs colliding in the playoffs or with postseason positioning at stake. This time around, they are searching for answers as both division favorites have failed to meet expectations. Green Bay (4-7-1) fired coach Mike McCarthy following last week’s loss to the Cardinals as a two-touchdown favorite, while Atlanta (4-8) dropped its fourth straight in a home loss to the Ravens. Green Bay is a 4.5-point favorite and the over-under for total points scored is 51 in the latest Packers vs. Falcons odds. Before you make any Falcons vs. Packers picks, you should listen to what SportsLine Expert R.J. White has to say.
White was SportsLine’s most profitable NFL analyst last season and returned $100 bettors a profit of nearly $2,000. He is having another strong season for SportsLine members and enters Week 14 on an impressive 28-13 run with his NFL selections. The renowned prognosticator has cashed big in the prestigious Las Vegas SuperContest two of the last three years.
White also has unparalleled credentials involving these clubs. In fact, he boasts an incredible 44-13 record on spread picks involving the Falcons or Packers over the past three seasons. One of those winners came last week when White advised SportsLine members that the Ravens (+1) would use their top-ranked defense to control the game against the Falcons. Baltimore rolled to a 26-16 victory, and anyone who followed White’s advice pocketed a comfortable winner.
Now. White has analyzed Falcons vs. Packers from every angle and released a confident point-spread selection that is available only at SportsLine.
White knows both clubs are desperate for a win, primarily to reverse their losing ways and provide hope for a strong finish. The Packers’ last victory came in a 31-12 rout of the Dolphins at home. They have since lost three straight, and the low point came last week against the woeful Cardinals. This prompted the unlikely in-season dismissal of McCarthy, who had been at the helm for 13 years.
Rodgers has led Green Bay to the NFL’s No. 8 overall offense at 380.6 yards per game and the sixth-ranked passing attack (274.9). The Packers will need an efficient outing in order to cover against a similarly desperate Falcons team that has dominated this series of late.
Two seasons ago, the Falcons rolled to a 44-21 win against Green Bay in the NFC Championship Game in Atlanta. They followed it up with a 34-23 win in the regular season last year against the Packers.
The Falcons have been felled by a shaky defense, but Ryan and friends are still producing on the offensive side. Atlanta is still No. 5 in passing yards per game at 298.6 and No. 10 in total offense at 377.6.
We can tell you White is leaning toward the Under, but his much stronger play is on the spread. He has scrutinized this matchup, crunched the stats and found a crucial X-factor that causes one side of the spread to hit hard. He’s only sharing what it is, and who to back, at SportsLine.
