Betting Analysis

The Packers have scored at least 27 first half points in consecutive games and the Eagles defense will be hard pressed to slow down Rodgers and company. If the Eagles offense can’t move the ball against Green Bay they may be in for a long afternoon. The Packers defense has struggled in the second half so the offense keeps the pedal to the metal all game, looking for Green Bay to cover and move one step closer to a division title.
