It doesn't get much more marquee than Aaron Rodgers vs. Tom Brady, and that's what is on tap for Sunday Night Football as the Green Bay Packers head to Foxborough to face the New England Patriots.
The Patriots are favored by five points, with the Over-Under at 56.5. If you're going to bet this prime-time showdown, you need to see what our advanced projection model has to say. The model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times.
In a straight-up, pick'em format, our proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and 2017, performing better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on all A-rated picks last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.
The model was a blistering 13-1 straight-up last week. Additionally, it was a strong 6-0 on all top-rated picks in Week 8, including nailing the Redskins (-1) over the Giants and the Seahawks (+3) over the Lions. That perfect mark in Week 8 improved its overall run to 68-43 on all top-rated picks. Anybody who has been following those picks is way, way up.
Now, it has simulated Packers vs. Patriots to produce strong against the spread and Over-Under picks.
