The last time the Green Bay Packers were favored by 13 points or more, they squeaked out an absurd comeback victory. In week 17 last season, the Packers came into Ford Field as 13.5-point favorites against the Detroit Lions, needing a win over a 3-11-1 team to clinch a first-round bye.
Things did not go according to plan in the first half, as Aaron Rodgers missed on deep ball after deep ball and the Lions built a 17-3 lead. However, those passes started connecting in the second half, and the Packers staged a furious comeback, their second of the season against the Lions. At the end, the Packers got what they needed — a victory — but it came on a last-second field goal as the team barely eked out the win.
This Sunday, the Packers are again nearly two-touchdown favorites, with a 13- or 13.5-point spread (depending on where you look) separating them from the 1-7 Jacksonville Jaguars. With the game coming at Lambeau Field, the Packers surely hope to win by a much more convincing margin than their three-point victory in that week 17 game a year ago.
APC feels good about the Packers winning and beating the spread this week, however, as the team is 6-2 both overall and against the spread this season. Take a look at APC’s complete week 10 picks below as we reveal our expectations for the weekend ahead across the NFL.
