Las Vegas is not counting on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers to take down the undefeated Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

In fact, the oddsmakers are putting the Packers at a 8.5-point underdog to the Rams with a potential for the point swing to rise up to 9.5. This would be the biggest odds against the Packers in the Rodgers' era.

This is a rare occurrence as Rodgers has only been an underdog by five or more points only four times in his career including this week's game. Rodgers is 1-3 in games both straight-up and against the spread.

The last time Rodgers' and the Packers were an 8.5-point underdog was in 2014 against the Seattle Seahawks, a game in which the Packers lost 36-16.

Only two other teams opened as bigger underdogs this week than Green Bay, Denver against Kansas City and Buffalo against New England.

The Packers look to prove the odds wrong and win their first road game of the season Sunday at 3:25 p.m.
