The Green Bay Packers look for another victory to build on their solid 5-1 start to the season. The Green Bay Packers have won seven of their last 10 home games. Aaron Rodgers is completing 62.6 percent of his passes for 1,509 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions. Rodgers has two or more touchdown passes in 10 of his last 16 games.

The Raiders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in October and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a bye week. The Packers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in October, 5-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss. The Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings and the favorite is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The under is 8-3 in Packers last 11 games on grass. The over is 4-1-1 in Raiders last 6 road games.
The Oakland Raiders have failed to cover six of their last eight games as a road underdog. The Green Bay Packers have split their last 14 games ATS as a home favorite. Don't look now, but the Raiders are coming off back-to-back wins over playoff contenders and have a ground game that's gotten hot and taken pressure off the rest of the offense. There's also a clear rest advantage for the Raiders, as they just enjoyed a bye week, while the Packers played Monday night, so they have an even shorter week. Throw in the injuries to the Packers receivers and how limited the offense is, and you have to like the value of the free points with the Raiders.
