The Green Bay Packers are likely to finish the regular season atop the NFC North, but they still need more wins to secure the no. 1 seed in the NFC. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens also need victories to keep themselves at the top spot of the AFC North. Check out our preview below of Week 15’s game between the Packers and the Ravens.

Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-6)
Regular Season Record: 5-8
Green Bay dominated the Chicago Bears again, as the Packers scored a 45-30 home win over their NFC North rivals in Week 14. Rodgers went 29/37 for 341 passing yards and four touchdowns with zero interceptions. There was basically nothing the Packers could have asked for from the future Hall of Famer, who will have another great opportunity to put up big numbers this coming weekend. For one, the Ravens’ secondary is banged up. It’s missing two of its top cornerbacks. Baltimore is also just 31st in the league against the pass, 30th in opponents’ pass completion percentage, and 28th in defensive interception rate. Davante Adams, who had 121 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 10 catches and 13 targets against the Bears could and should have a field day torching Baltimore’s defense.
The Packers, who are averaging 25.2, are 8-1 against the spread in their last 9 games after a win.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (+6)
Regular Season Record: 9-4
The biggest concern right now for the Ravens is the availability of Lamar Jackson in Week 15. The former league was not able to finish last Sunday’s 24-22 road loss to the Cleveland Browns after leaving the game early with an ankle injury. Jackson was not able to practice on Wednesday but is still considered questionable for Week 15, so there’s hope that he will be able to go up against Green Bay. If not, the Ravens will turn to Tyler Huntley, who’s far from an elite quarterback, but can still admirably get the job done. He had 270 passing yards and a touchdown on 27/38 completions against the Browns. He also rushed for 45 yards on six carries. Tight end Mark Andrews will also be a huge threat for Green Bay’s defense regardless of who starts for the Ravens. Andrews caught all 11 targets for 115 yards and a touchdown against the Browns. He will be effective as long as he gets looks downfield.
The Ravens are 5-1 against the spread in their last 6 games after a loss.
The Packers win, 30-23.
