TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, AUGUST 19TH
#406 GREEN BAY (-2′) over New Orleans at 8 PM EST
Even though the Packers own a surprising 0-4 SU and ATS record in their last four preseason games, the Cheeseheads will have no trouble extending the margin when the Saints come to town on Friday night. New Orleans enters this contest off a SU and ATS road loss at Houston in its exhibition opener and head coach Dennis Allen and his players will struggle once again in this spot.
As a preseason host, the Pack have been worth the wager inking a reliable 36-16 SU and 33-18-1 ATS mark including an awesome 8-1 SU and ATS in this situation facing a foe that arrives off a pointspread loss. Also, when favored in the exhibition season, Green Bay holds a profitable 39-12 SU and 32-17-2 ATS record in its last 51 battles including a money-making 34-11 SU and 30-13-2 ATS if the Cheeseheads are laying -6.5 or less.
New Orleans has really struggled in the preseason lately. In fact, the Saints are on a dismal 8-16 SU and 6-17-1 ATS run in their last 24 exhibition contests including a woeful 1-5-1 ATS in this set tackling an opponent that checks in without steam off a straight up loss. Even worse, when matched up against a foe that arrives off a pointspread blemish, NO holds a weak 21-31 SU and 19-30-3 ATS tally including 10-15 SU and 6-16-3 ATS if the Saints bust in off a straight up loss. With those two parameters live and New Orleans priced as an underdog or pick, this team trend falls to a rough 1-6 SU and 1-5-1 ATS.
The Packers always play better inside Lambeau Field. With a trip to Kansas City scheduled for Thursday, August 25th, head coach Matt LaFleur will make sure his kids take care of business here. Take Green Bay. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
