The Spread Sharp Report: Few Believe In Patriots Vs. Aaron Rodgers, Packers

Green Bay represents 95% of the moneyline handle at one shop


September 30

You’re not going to find many public bettors throwing money on the New England Patriots to earn an outright win in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

In fact, given the Patriots ruled out starting quarterback Mac Jones, their clash against Aaron Rodgers represents the most lopsided wager on the betting board at both PointsBet Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook.

DraftKings Sportsbook on Friday afternoon shared its insights, which had the Packers representing for the singe-largest output regarding both moneyline handle and moneyline bets. Eighty-nine percent of the handle and 91% of tickets are on Green Bay to win straight up. And in comparison to PointsBet, the difference is by a considerable amount with the Las Vegas Raiders having the second-most handle at 79% and Los Angeles Chargers getting the second-most tickets at 85%.

PointsBet revealed Thursday the Packers are responsible for 95% of the moneyline handle and 92% of the moneyline tickets at the shop, despite the juice leaning heavily toward Green Bay. And while there are a few other massive numbers elsewhere — Los Angeles Rams have 94% of the moneyline handle, Philadelphia Eagles have 90% — it’s clear no team in the league is doubted more by the betting public in Week 4 than the Patriots.

With Brian Hoyer starting behind center against Rodgers and a dominant Packers defense, it’s fair to assume the amount of moneyline tickets and handle only will increase as we creep closer to Sunday’s contest.
