Opening Odds Analysis

The Packers opened as 7-point favorites in this matchup but are all the way up to Green Bay -9.5 as they continue to play well and Philadelphia continues to struggle. Bettors have also leaned toward the UNDER 48.5 points, driving the line down to 47 points. The UNDER is 7-2 in Green Bay’s last nine games against Philadelphia.

Philadelphia News & Notes

Carson Wentz isn’t the only problem in Philadelphia. But in a quarterback-driven league, it’s difficult to ignore the struggles of a franchise quarterback. The Eagles lost their third straight game on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks, and Wentz once again looked terrible in completing only 55.6 percent of his passes for 215 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Before picking up 58 passing yards and a touchdown in garbage time to steal a backdoor cover as 6.5-point underdogs in the 23-17 loss to Seattle, Wentz didn’t get much going on offense all game long. His 15 interceptions lead the league by a wide margin. But despite Wentz’s struggles and the team’s disappointing 3-7-1 SU and 4-7 ATS record, there has been no indication the team plans to give Jalen Hurts a shot under center.

Green Bay News & Notes

Aaron Rodgers picked the Bears defense apart in last Sunday’s 41-25 win as 7.5-point favorites at home. Rodgers completed 21 of his 29 passes for 211 passing yards, four passing touchdowns and no interceptions. The veteran quarterback leads the league in touchdown passes with 33 and has thrown only four interceptions.

With the Packers rolling to their seventh NFC North title in 10 years and with Rodgers still playing at such an elite level, you have to wonder if Green Bay’s front office has any regrets in burning its first-round draft pick in 2020 on a quarterback instead of a player that could have made an impact on this year’s push for a Super Bowl.

Regardless, things are looking good in Green Bay right now with a full three-game lead in the division, an 8-3 SU record and a fairly soft schedule down the stretch.

Betting Pick: Philadelphia +9.5

For as poorly as the Eagles have been playing on offense, their defense has quietly been playing great, allowing only 20.3 points per game over the last four games. Green Bay should win comfortably enough, but 9.5 points is too many to pass up on here.
