Free Pick against the Spread
We like the Packers here. The Panthers had their opportunities to put up points and with any improvement in the health of Aaron Rodgers we expect Green Bay to capitalize on their chances. Seattle ran all over the Cheese heads in Week 1, but missed assignments and shoddy tackling were to blame and on paper that issue appears to be in the past.
Take the Green Bay Packers +7.5 -120
