The NFL is back in London at the naming-rights pending Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this week where the Green Bay Packers will bring an especially pungent Wisconsin Marbled Blue-Jack to add to the cheese room selection, though the New York Giants could stink the place out even more than any dairy products if Daniel Jones isn’t healthy.

And Paddy is going to give you a FREE Bet Builder if you place a pre-match bet builder on the Pack v the G-men up to a value of £/€5.

Better still, we’ve put together a Bet Builder below for you if you don’t know a tight-end from a tackle that comes to 13/1….

Handicap: Packers -8

London gets treated to the clash of two 3-1 teams on Sunday but that’s about as even as this game will get with New York’s quarterbacks hurting.

An ankle injury left starter Daniel Jones’ status in doubt for much of the week, while his backup is out with a concussion.

Jones will play but his chief asset this season has been on the ground rather than through the air. It has helped his team become one of the better rushing teams in the league through the opening weeks, but an ankle problem is certainly not going to help maintain that.

The Packers did make heavy work of the Patriots’ back-up and then third-string signal-callers last week on their own turf, and the trans-Atlantic trip is always a bit of an x-factor in these match-ups, but assuming Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon got business class flights this week, it’s very difficult to see how New York upset the heavy favourites at Tottenham’s stadium.

The Pack were only in trouble last week because of turnovers. Aaron Rodgers is not going to make a habit of throwing pick-sixes so they should win this by more than a score against a one-dimensional Giants offence.

Packers total Points: Over 25.5

The emphasis on the running game by both teams also goes some way to explaining the low total number on the here of 41.5 points.

I’d stay away from it on the basis that I don’t trust the Giants to hold up their end of the bargain, but the Packers do appeal on the over of 25.5 points.

They posted 27 last week versus New England and against Chicago already this season. They were closed down by the Bucs, but they might have a league-best D so we should see Green Bay score here.

Plus, London games tend to favour better teams because underdogs don’t get as much time to gameplan. That should all mean more scope for scoring for Rodgers here.

Robert Tonyan Over 23.5 Receiving Yards

Aaron Rodgers’ is still working on his chemistry with an inexperienced and less-than-explosive receiving corps.

He could’ve done with his veteran tight-end’s support earlier in the season, but Tonyan is still getting up to full-speed after an ACL injury.

The Giants are allowing over 40 yards per game to the position and Rodgers will be only too happy to target him as he’s worked back into the gameplan.

Saquon Barkley First Team Touchdown Scorer

Put simply, the Giants’ offence has to run through Barkley this week. Jones has had his practices limited and cannot be as mobile as he has been in previous weeks.

Their skill positions are seriously depleted already, with Sterling Shephard out for the season, and Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay are also missing this week.

It’s also not like their offence was going in any other direction anyway, but Barkley will be used heavily here and should have every opportunity to score first for his team.
