NFL Week 5Odds and Prediction:
The Packers are favored to win this game by 3.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 49.5.
The Packers have win three straight games and they’ve looked better on both ends of the ball. But, they still don’t run the ball consistently and they’re facing a very good run defense, which will force Rodgers to throw the ball more than he would like and allow the Bengals to send a lot of pressure, so go with the Bengals to cover at home and the under.
