Last year’s Eagles vs. Packers game gave Green Bay their first loss of the season and was in my opinion, the first time both Mike Pettine and Matt LaFleur were out coached in the same game. This year’s matchup looks very different from last year however as the Eagles are flying low and the Packers offense looks to be the class of the NFC.
Spread- Green Bay is Favored by 9 points
Moneyline- Packers are -400 favorites
As mentioned before, the Packers will be coming into Sunday’s matchup clicking on all cylinders, trending upwards on defense, and added a new weapon to the special teams game in Tavon Austin who should look to replace Tyler Ervin’s offensive snaps as well if Ervin can’t recover from an arm injury that has hampered him all season. Aaron Rodgers is in top contention for this year’s MVP alongside Patrick Mahomes and the unit overall is ranked 2nd in the NFL in offensive DVOA, again behind the Chiefs.
There is no offensive statistical category in which the Packer’s offense does not compare favorably to the Eagles offense and if the Packers continue their impressive 1st quarter statistical output averages then this could turn into a boat race by the end of the first half. Packers really do not have a good reason to lose this game- expect them to cover the 9 and win straight up, improving their record to 9-3.
Over/Under Point Total- 47.5
I have no confidence in the Eagles offense but I have that much confidence in Green Bay that I would recommend taking the over here…
Props- Will Be Added Saturday
Last Week- 4-1 | Season Total- 8-12 (40%)
