The last time these two teams met head to head was Week 17 of 2002, when Denver beat Arizona by a 37-7 final count. The Broncos found themselves three-point home favorites over the Green Bay Packers in an NFL wagering contest last week at Invesco Field; the ‘total’ closed at 38.
The first quarter ended with the Packers up 7-3, and in the second quarter, Broncos QB Jay Cutler threw two touchdown passes to give the Broncos the 17-13 halftime lead. Throughout the game, both teams appeared to be evenly matched, putting up similar numbers in the first down, passing yard, and time of possession categories.
The Packers were able to overcome the NFL odds and persevere when Kregg Lumpkin’s one yard touchdown run gave Green Bay the lead with just over two minutes to play in regulation. The Packers were able to come out of this one with a victory, pleasing their fans and gamblers who backed the Packers in this contest.
NFL bettors that foresaw a higher scoring football betting contest were pleased that the combined ‘total’ went over by 13 points. The Arizona Cardinals closed as 3.5-point underdogs against the Oakland Raiders according to the NFL betting line on Friday, with the total coming in at 39.5.
