NFL Week 4 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Packers 30, Patriots 16

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Patriots have not impressed and are now dealing with an injured Mac Jones. Sounds like a recipe for a Green Bay win at home."

Draft Kings: Go with the Packers to cover against Patriots

It writes: "If Jones plays for the Patriots, this line will move a bit closer to New England. The Packers are starting to get comfortable with their identity, and Aaron Rodgers is showing he can still make the throws when necessary. Take Green Bay’s defense and running game to win and cover here."

NFL Week 4 odds:

SB Nation: Take the under in Packers vs. Patriots game

It writes: "The total for the game sits at 42 points, which may be a bit high for a sputtering offense facing a backup quarterback. This season, Green Bay’s games have averaged 31 total points between the Packers and their opponents. Unders have hit in all three of the Packers’ games in 2022." Take the Packers to cover vs. Patriots

Bill Speros writes: "Mac Jones suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 3 and could miss some time because of it. An MRI was negative. If Jones is out, that leaves Brian Hoyer as New England's starting QB. Another mountainous challenge for Bill Belichick and his 528 coordinators. This time at Lambeau Field. Bill Belichick holds a 2-1 edge against Aaron Rodgers, whose QB rating against New England is just 92.2. Rodgers has a higher rating against 27 other NFL teams. This line moved 4.5 points following Sunday's play. The Packers offense looked great for 30 minutes against Tampa Bay. Rodgers should be in a groove against New England. And Green Bay usually covers big lines at home."

Pro Football Network: Take the Patriots with the points against Packers

BJ Rudell writes: "A huge betting line suggests backup QB Brian Hoyer will get squashed. There’s not much more to say. While the Packers’ offense lacks the quick-strike ability of past Aaron Rodgers-led teams, it’s still highly potent. And while New England’s defense is good enough to step up, it’s been too inconsistent to trust. As for the Patriots’ backfield, they’ll keep running Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson (and they will). That might be enough to limit Green Bay’s possessions but not enough to prevail."

CBS Sports: Patriots have really struggled against the spread

Tyler Sullivan writes: "This was a modest Packers -5.5 back in May but it has ballooned up dramatically. in the lookahead, this line only jumped a point to Packers -6.5, but following Mac Jones' ankle injury in Week 3, it leaped up to Packers -11 on Monday morning. If Jones misses this game, it would be Brian Hoyer leading the Patriots into Lambeau Field. Even with Jones, the Patriots haven't been a team worth betting on as they are just one of three teams in the NFL without an ATS win, sitting at 0-2-1 ATS coming out of Week 3. As for the Packers, they are 2-1 ATS this season and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games."

ESPN: Packers have an 83.8% chance to win the game

The site's Football Power Index gives the Patriots a 16% shot at picking up the victory.
