Last week, both the Packers and Eagles had very impressive home wins, and on Sunday both teams are set to square off at Lambeau Field in a vital matchup of the NFC between two sides that are seen by many as being playoff contenders. Pay per head services saw that on Monday Night Football, Philadelphia beat Carolina 45-21 as the favorites by seven points, and on Sunday night, Green Bay took out Chicago 55-14 as the favorites by nine points.
The betting line opened with the Packers as the favorites by 4.5 points, and the total opened at 54.
The Eagles were a great team on the road with coach Chip Kelly – who’s on his second year with the team – as they went 7-3 SU and ATS in their last 10 games on the road. This season, Philadelphia were already able to win games away from home when they faced the Colts and Texans, and now they’re 3-1 ATS in their last four meetings as the road underdogs.
The Packers will take a look at the offense that Kelly currently has for the first time, and they’re set to be much different than what was shown last week on the field. The Eagles must have really liked QB Mark Sanchez’s performance, as the player was able to throw for 332 yards and two TD’s in the first start made for Philly.
Last week, the Packers did most of the damage during the first half when they took out the Bears, as they built a lead of 42- 0 at halftime – then they flew as quite a few of their players were able to get some very important experience in the game.
In the game’s first two quarters, Aaron Rodgers, the Packers’ very famous QB, was able to tie a league record as in the game’s first two quarters he made six TD passes and ended with 315 yards. Now the player will face a Philly secondary that last week took on a passer that was not nearly as accurate in Cam Newton, QB for the Panthers.
Green Bay were able to win three out of their last four meetings with Philadelphia both SU and ATS, and are also 3-0 ATS in their last there meetings as the favorites at home.
This upcoming clash is set to be a big test with each team’s defenses, and many pay per head services believe that if LB Clay Matthews performs like he did against the Bears, the Eagles don’t stand a chance, and the Packers could be the ones to own the game.
