Aaron Rodgers has been placed on the Covid-19 list, and the Packers star QB will miss Sunday’s Week 9 game at Kansas City.
Oddsmakers reacted swiftly to the news. The game was essentially a pick ‘em on the consensus line before the story broke. With Jordan Love set to face Patrick Mahomes in his first NFL start, the Chiefs are now -8 at DraftKings and -7.5 at BetRivers.
Rodgers played without WRs Davante Adams and Allen Lazard due to Covid last week. The Packers still pulled out a 24-21 road win at Arizona as 6-point road dogs. Adams remains sidelined as of Wednesday, but Lazard is active for Sunday’s game against K.C.
Chiefs’ Poor ATS Run
Green Bay has won and covered the spread in all seven games since their Week 1 loss to New Orleans. But with Rodgers out, it’s obviously a different story.
The Packers are just 6-11-1 straight up when Rodgers hasn’t played since he took over as their starting QB in 2008, per StatMuse, and 7-11 ATS in those games.
The Chiefs, though, haven’t inspired confidence at the betting window. They are just 2-6 against the spread this season, and dating back to last season, including the playoffs, they are on a 4-15 ATS run.
