During their seven-game winning streak, the AFC-leading Patriots have won outright as underdogs on several occasions.
And they will get another chance to pull an upset next Sunday.
The Packers have been made 3- to 3.5-point favorites over visiting New England next Sunday at Lambeau Field, according to multiple websites monitoring lines at Nevada sports books.
The Packers (8-3) have been outstanding at home this season, winning all five games. They have also been wonderful favorites, posting a 6-1-1 mark against the point spread when laying points, according to “The Linemakers” of Sporting News. The Packers first non-cover of 2014 as favorites came Sunday vs. Minnesota, with the Vikings beating the 7.5-point point spread in a 24-21 Green Bay victory.
On the other hand, the Patriots (9-2) have been perfect as underdogs in 2014, knocking off Cincinnati (-2.5) and Denver (-3) in Foxborough and defeating Indianapolis (-3) on the road. Some Nevada sports books also made the Patriots one-point underdogs at Buffalo on October 12; New England would win that game, too, rolling to a 37-22 victory.
