Eagles vs. Packers Betting Predictions

Eagles vs Packers NFL
Philadelphia vs. Green Bay, NFL Betting Predictions, December 6

These are two teams headed in opposite directions as the Philadelphia Eagles limp into Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. The Eagles have lost three straight since their bye week as the offense has continued to deteriorate under Carson Wentz. The Packers have no such struggles as Aaron Rodgers has continued to make the Packers a Super Bowl contender with his arm alone. That is more than enough to make the difference in an easy Green Bay win.

Eagles vs. Packers Betting Odds

Philadelphia hasn’t even put up 200 yards passing in three of the last four games as Wentz has completely fallen apart. He’s somehow still thrown two touchdown passes in six of his last seven games, but he leads the league with 15 interceptions and he’s been sacked 46 times already in 11 games – more than he’s ever been sacked in a season in his career. He’s completing a career-worst 58.1 percent of his passes and it’s not like he’s even receiving help from the running game. The Eagles are just a mess right now, but they’ve somehow gritted their way on defense to close losses. Much of that has to do with playing in the putrid NFC East and the terrible offenses in the division, Philadelphia likely won’t get as lucky this week against this Green Bay offense.

There is so much chatter around Rodgers – and rightfully so – but the Packers looked like a completely balanced offense last week against the Bears. Aaron Jones ran for 90 yards and Jamaal Williams added 73 and a touchdown as both had 17 carries in a blowout over Chicago. Rodgers was surgically efficient in tossing four touchdowns and just eight incompletions against the notoriously difficult Bears defense. Rodgers now has 33 touchdowns to just four interceptions this season while completing more than two-thirds of his passes. The fact the No. 1 scoring offense in the league continues to look better on a weekly basis as it gets healthier is a scary thought for so many defenses. The Packers just need to make some strides on their own defense and Green Bay will be the runaway favorite in the NFC. An inept Chicago offense still managed to score 25 points and gain 351 yards – though in fairness to Green Bay it was mostly in garbage time. Still, the defense gives plenty of people worries on a weekly basis no matter the opposition.

After Philadelphia has scored 17 points in three consecutive weeks, the NFL betting sites in New Jersey have caught on and put the over/under on the Eagles’ total at 17.5 points. Whether or not Philadelphia reaches that total is dependent on who plays quarterback and how quickly the Packers can grab the lead and extend it. Philadelphia is very good at adding points in the fourth quarter when the result is determined to make games look far closer than they actually were. I’m actually more intrigued in Green Bay’s over/under being set at 28 against this Eagles defense. Philadelphia has not allowed 28 points in any of its last five games and they’ve allowed more than 370 yards of offense just three times this season. Green Bay has scored 30 or more points in three of the last four weeks, and has one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL at the helm. I’ll take my chances with a double dip of betting Green Bay over 28 points at -110 odds and over 47 total points in the game at -106 odds.

Packers to win

The question isn’t as much whether the Packers will win but how good is this Philadelphia defense? Green Bay is an 8.5-point favorite according to the New Jersey online sports betting sites and the Packers have the offense to easily win by that much. But Philadelphia has the eighth-best passing defense and ranks third in the league for fewest passing touchdowns allowed. The good news for Green Bay’s offense is that Philadelphia allowed 177 passing yards to D.K. Metcalf alone last week, and the Packers have a star in Davante Adams who can torch the Eagles for just as many yards. With how well the Packers are rolling on offense right now and the confidence of playing at home, I’ll bet Green Bay laying 13.5 points at +140 odds.
