What are the latest odds for the Green Bay Packers’ matchup with the New York Giants in London in Week 5?

The Green Bay Packers will be in London in Week 5 to take on the New York Giants.

Matt LaFleur’s team enters the game as favorites, although it may come down to the team that best adjusts to the different timezone after a long trip.

Green Bay enters Week 5 on the back of three straight victories, while New York has also won three of its opening four contests.

Let’s take a look at the latest odds for the Week 5 matchup.

Green Bay Packers vs. New York Giants odds Week 5

According to FanDuel, the Packers are 8.5-point favorites for Sunday’s showdown with the Giants. Despite needing overtime to defeat the New England Patriots, they are favored to beat the Giants by more than a touchdown.

Green Bay’s moneyline is -400 for the game, while New York is at +315.

The over/under for the game is currently 41.5 points.

Green Bay’s offense has struggled somewhat in recent weeks, and that may be an issue against a New York defense allowing only 17.8 points per game.

Both teams rank in the top 10 for scoring defense.

A concern for the Packers is that the Giants enter Week 5 with the league’s top-ranked rushing offense, averaging 192.5 yards on the ground per game. Green Bay has the No. 22 run defense.

The good news? The Giants have the second-worst passing offense. Only the Chicago Bears are averaging fewer yards through the air per game. They have allowed 14 sacks in four games, which isn’t ideal when Rashan Gary is next on the schedule.

This could be another close game. After an unusual week with long travel, both teams need to adjust. Green Bay’s offense has been inconsistent, while the run defense has struggled.

For those reasons, the Giants keep it close. However, the Packers should get the job done in London.
