This week, the Green Bay Packers (10-3) travel to M&T Bank Stadium to play the Baltimore Ravens (8-5). NFL betting odds show that the Packers are currently favored by 5.5 points.
Both teams lead their respective divisions. Let’s look at the top wagers for the Packers at Ravens in Week 15.
Last week, the Packers won 45-30 in a wild matchup at Lambeau Field against the Chicago Bears. They scored 24 points in the second half after trailing the Bears 27-21 at halftime.
Aaron Rodgers had a stellar performance. He threw four touchdowns with 341 passing yards. Averaging 6.9 yards per play, the Packers dominated the time of possession by ten minutes.
Against the Ravens, the Packers offense could have a similar performance.
At home, the Ravens’ defense allows 24.7 points per game. In addition, the Ravens are 31st in passing yards allowed per game (266.1), and they face a white-hot Packers offense averaging 37.3 points over the last three games.
Last week, Lamar Jackson left the game early after getting injured. Even when healthy, Lamar Jackson has struggled this season. The Baltimore offense averages only 23.4 points per game, and Jackson has 13 interceptions this season, including eight in his past five starts.
Even if Jackson is healthy enough to play, the Green Bay defense ranks top ten in total yards allowed per game (323.6), passing yards allowed (218.5), rushing yards allowed (105.2), and points allowed (20.9).
Baltimore has the NFL’s number one rushing defense, but they rank 31st at passing defense, and Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers remains one of the league’s most prolific passers. He’s ranked tenth in passing yards (3,219) with 27 passing touchdowns and only four interceptions.
Getting pressure on Rodgers could help Baltimore, but that’s been a challenging task for most of their opponents this season. Rodgers’ quick release and Green Bay’s stout offensive line allow an average of only two sacks per game, and Baltimore’s defense ranks 25th in sack percentage (5.3%).
The Packers have hit the over in their last three matchups. In that span, they’ve averaged 333 yards passing per game.
Rodgers should have plenty of scoring opportunities against one of the worst passing defenses in the league. I believe that the Packers could score 30 in this game, meaning the Ravens would only need to contribute 14 to get the point total over 43.5.
Green Bay Packers by 1-6 (+310)
At three times your wager, the Packers to win by 1-6 at +310 is an intriguing bet.
An average of 4.5 points has decided the Ravens’ last six games, and an average of 5.5 points determined the four previous Packers’ road games.
Green Bay averages 25.2 points per game this season, while Baltimore averages 23.4.
So, the Packers by 1-6 offers decent potential if you’re not too sure about the spread or over-under.
