Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 22 points and 380.5 yards per game. Blake Martinez leads the Green Bay Packers with 108 tackles, Preston Smith has 10.5 sacks and Kevin King has three interceptions.
The New York Giants look to play spoilt while snapping a seven-game losing streak. The New York Giants have lost three straight home games. Daniel Jones is completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 2,134 yards, 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Jones enters this game with 333 career pass attempts under his belt.

The Packers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games on fieldturf and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games in December. The Giants are 0-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Packers are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the home team is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Giants last 5 home games. The over is 20-9 in Packers last 29 road games.
The Green Bay Packers are 4-4 ATS in their last eight games as a road favorite. The New York Giants are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games as a home underdog. The Green Bay Packers have looked lost in each of their last two road games, but this time they're going up against a losing Giants team that can't get out of their own way and have been absolutely awful in the underdog role. The New York Giants simply don't cover numbers, and I doubt their offense can counter once Rodgers and company eventually break out of this funk. I'll take the Packers by a touchdown.
