The two hottest teams – Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons – go head-to-head this NFL expert pick Sunday.

The Packers and Falcons have the longest winning streaks in the entire NFL, having won four straight games each. However, Green Bay does have one distinct statistical advantage over Atlanta.

Green Bay has the highest point differential of any team in the entire NFL with an average margin of victory of over ten points per game.

In Week 8, the Packers shut out the Jets in New York 9-0. The following NFL expert pick week, they dominated the Dallas Cowboys in Lambeau Field 45-7. Last week, they visited Minnesota, routing the Vikings 31-3.

They scored a total of 57 points in their last three games combined while allowing only 10 points.

Atlanta, on the other hand, has been winning their NFL expert pick matches by much slimmer margins.

The Falcons have been averaging 31.5 points on offense in their last four games, but they have also permitted their opponents to score 91 points combined in those 4 games.

The key deciding factor in this NFL expert pick matchup will be the defenses.

Green Bay’s defense allows an average of less than 15 points per game, and is positioned as the 2nd overall defense in the entire NFL. They are also great at creating turnovers, ranking 2nd in interceptions with 15.  

Th Packers stout defense also ranks 11th against the pass in the NFL, allowing just 211.3 passing yards per game. Matt Ryan and Co. will have trouble finding holes and throwing lanes in Green Bay’s secondary.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, on the contrary, should excel against the Falcons’ weak secondary.

Atlanta is ranked 24th in total pass defense, giving up nearly 250 yards per game. In addition, they have allowed twice as many touchdowns through the air than Green Bay this NFL expert pick season.

This NFL expert pick matchup has all the makings to be a down-to-the-last-drive game. Put your money on the Green Bay Packers.

Brett’s Prediction: Green Bay Packers: 31 Atlanta Falcons: 23

NFL Expert Pick: Green Bay Packers +2.5
