When the Green Bay Packers host the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night, they are eager to see if their offense can continue to produce.
Last week, the Packers (4-6) shocked Dallas to end a five-game losing streak, while the Titans (6-3) also overcame deficits to defeat Denver.
Two of the last three encounters in the series have been won by Green Bay, including a 40-14 rout at home over Tennessee in Week 16 of the 2020 campaign.
In four of the last five meetings, dating back to 2004, the winning team has scored 40 points or more.
It might be difficult to keep the Thursday trend going. Tennessee hasn’t scored more than 24 points in a game this year, while Green Bay’s highest total is 31.
Green Bay is a generally accepted 3.5-point favorite at home, despite the fact that the Titans lead the unimpressive AFC South while the Packers are merely attempting to remain in the playoff picture.
Tigers RB Anytime TD Scorer Derrick Henry (-195 at BetRivers): It is wise to look around for this wager because BetRivers has better odds than other bookmakers. It has drawn 4.2 percent of all game tickets and 2.0 percent of the money at BetRivers, making it the most well-liked player prop. The Packers’ pass defense helps them to a ninth-place overall defensive ranking, though. When it comes to allowing 140.6 rushing yards per game, Green Bay is ranked 26th.
Rams, Packers John Dillon With the same offensive line starting consecutive games for the first time this season, Green Bay surpassed 200 yards rushing for the third time this season against Dallas. Over 33.5 Rushing Yards (-120 at DraftKings): In particular during the chilly prime hour, anticipate that trend to continue. Last week, Aaron Jones had the most carries (24), but Dillon still gained 65 yards on 13 touches. Additionally, Tennessee will be without two starters and a crucial defensive backup.
The Titans are scoring just 18.4 points per game on average under 41 Total Points (-108 at BetRivers). Since 2002, only two out of 140 playoff teams have averaged so few wins. The quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ ability to play an unusual complementary role in the two-headed ground game is undoubtedly the key to the Packers’ success. During its losing skid, Green Bay also played only 15.8 games on average
Center Ben Jones of the Titans, safety Amani Hooker of the Titans (shoulder), outside linebacker Bud Dupree of the Titans (hip), kicker Randy Bullock of the Titans (calf), and backup safety Lonnie Johnson Jr. of the Titans (hamstring) are all injured. Elijah Molden, a defensive back, and Jeffery Simmons, a defensive tackle, both have questionable injuries to their ankles.
De’Vondre Campbell, an inside linebacker, and Romeo Doubs, a wide receiver, are out for the Packers. At the same time, cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles (ankle) is questionable and offensive tackle Elgton Jenkins (knee) is doubtful due to injuries.
The Packers’ ferocious comeback to defeat the Cowboys kept their postseason hopes alive, but this is still a squad that has serious problems. The game will be competitive, particularly at home against a Titans club that also has trouble scoring, but Tennessee’s strong defense will have more control over field position.
