The Patriots are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Packers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Patriots last 7 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Packers last 4 games overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The New England Patriots didn't look great with Mac Jones at quarterback, so I can only imagine how they look with Brian Hoyer under center. Almost 37 years old, Hoyer has never been a great quarterback, and he's started just 13 games since 2016. The Green Bay Packers remain great defensively, and Rodgers is looking more and more comfortable in this offense. This is a massive number in the NFL, but I can't get behind the Patriots. It's Packers in a beat down or pass for me.
