Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers

Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI

When: Sunday, December 9, 1:00 PM. ET.

The Green Bay Packers will be trying to snap a three-game losing streak when they take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon.

Falcons Trying To Snap Four-Game Losing Streak

The Falcons had been hoping to compete for the NFC South title this season, but the team finds itself at the bottom of the division standings and will be trying to salvage what is left of the season by finishing strong. The Falcons will try to snap their four-game losing streak and get their second road win of the season when they play the Packers.

Offensively, the Falcons got off to a fast start and had one of the top offenses in the league. Since then they haven’t played well and have failed to score 20 or more points in their last four games.

Matt Ryan has completed 70 percent of his passes for 3,814 yards, 25 touchdowns, and five interceptions. The Falcons have struggled to run the ball this season and Tevin Coleman leads the team with 514 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Defensively, the Falcons are giving up 27.8 points per game, which is one of the worst scoring averages in the league. They will need to play better than they have in their last four games to get the win on Sunday.

Packers Hoping Coaching Change Makes Difference

The Packers surprised a lot of people when they fired Mike McCarthy after the team’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. With McCarthy gone, Joe Philbin will be charged with turning things around for the Packers and he will need the team to perform well if he wants to be named the full-time head coach at the end of the season.

Green Bay has struggled on the offensive end this season. The team is averaging 23.4 points per game, but they have failed to score more than 17 points in their last two games.

Aaron Rodgers has completed 61.8 percent of his passes for 3,504 yards, 21 touchdowns, and one interception. Like the Falcons, the Packers have struggled to run the ball this season. They are led by Aaron Jones, who has 642 rushing yards and seven touchdowns this year.

Green Bay has also struggled on the defensive end, giving up 23.9 points per game. Even though the Falcons are struggling offensively, they are still a dangerous team when they are playing well, which means the Packers can’t afford too many defensive lapses in this game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Packers have played well against the spread, winning five of their last seven week 14 games. The Falcons have struggled against the spread, losing their last five games against teams with losing records and five of their last six road games.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers -6

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone under in Atlanta’s last four games and in four of the team’s last five games against teams with losing records. The total has also gone under in five of Green Bay’s last six games and in the team’s last four games following a straight up loss.

Prediction: Under 49.5

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

The Packers are averaging 23.4 points per game this season. Even though the Falcons have struggled defensively, Green Bay’s offense hasn’t looked sharp this year and they will fail to go over 28 points in this game.

Prediction: Packers – Total Points Under 28.3

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Packers will win the first half because they have outplayed the Falcons in the first half of their last three games, averaging 15 points per game while the Falcons average 6.3 points per game.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers -3

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Falcons and Packers are combining for 21.3 points per game in the first half of their last three games and will fall short of the first half total if they continue at their current pace.

Prediction: Under 24

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Falcons have struggled offensively over their last three games and they will fail to go over 10.5 points in the first half of this game because they are averaging seven points per game in the first half of their last three games.

Prediction: Falcons – 1st Half Total Points Under 10.5
