The Green Bay Packers are undefeated after two games in the 2019 NFL season. The Denver Broncos are still searching for their first win. Neither one of those facts is expected to change when they meet at Lambeau Field in Week 3.

Green Bay is a 7.5-point favorite at home, according to the latest betting line at OddsShark. The Packers covered the spread in both Week 1 and Week 2, beating the Chicago Bears on the road and winning their home opener against the Minnesota Vikings. 

Denver covered the spread in their last game, but the team couldn’t pick up a victory in their home opener. The Broncos were defeated by the Chicago Bears 16-14 on a last-second field goal after losing to the Oakland Raiders in Week 1.

The rest of the season could be a long one for Denver. The Broncos rank 28th in the NFL with 30 total points scored. The offense was among the league’s worst in each of the last two seasons and doesn’t appear to be any better with Joe Flacco now starting at quarterback. 

The Broncos’ offensive struggles don’t come as much of a surprise. The Packers’ troubles have been a little more unexpected, though that doesn’t mean they are going away any time soon.

A season after Green Bay underachieved with Aaron Rodgers starting all 16 games, there isn’t a ton of evidence to suggest the unit will be much better under first-year head coach Matt LaFleur. The Packers were held to 10 points in the season opener. After jumping out to a quick 21-0 lead at home against Minnesota, Green Bay was held scoreless over the game’s final 44 minutes.

Rodgers didn’t throw for more than 209 yards in either contest. Only three NFL teams have totaled fewer yards of offense than Green Bay.

It’s been the Packers’ defense that’s led them to a perfect record. Green Bay has allowed an NFC-best 9.5 points per game. Free-agent additions Preston Smith, Za’Darius Smith and Adrian Amos have been worth every penny. 

Denver still has an above-average defense. It’s why they’ve only been outscored by 10 points in two games. 

Mitchell Trubisky only threw for 120 yards as Chicago escaped Mile High with a win in Week 2. The quarterback put up nearly twice as many yards against Green Bay.

The total for Sunday afternoon’s game is only 42.5. Considering the way both offenses have performed, the two teams might be lucky to combine for 40 points at Lambeau Field.

This could be a relatively close, low-scoring game with the Packers and the much better quarterback pulling out the win. 

Prediction: Green Bay over Denver, 23-17
