Sports-Gambling.com will have all of the football betting action available until the game kicks off from Lambeau Field at 1:00 ET. The Packers have owned this series of late, pummeling the betting lines against the Falcons in three straight outings by an average of 19.5 ppg. The Falcons have been a complete mystery this year for football betting gurus.
Atlanta is operating a lot like the stock market nowadays, as one game they are up and look fantastic, while the next they appear to sink to an incredible low. Week 4 was a low week for the Falcons against the NFL betting line. They were throttled by the Panthers 24-9 and dominated on both sides of the ball.
Carolina outgained Atlanta 401-268. and QB Matt Ryan was inconsistent, completing just 21-of-41 passes for 158 yards without a TD pass. It was a very tough week for QB Aaron Rodgers and the Pack.
The University of California product threw the first three interceptions of his young career against a stifling Bucs defense, which forced four total turnovers and held RB Ryan Grant to just 20 yards on 15 carries. Tampa Bay picked up the NFL betting victory 30-21, and easily beat the football betting odds that featured the Bucs as short home favorites.
The news got worse for Packers fans after the game, as Rodgers hurt his throwing shoulder and is questionable for this weekend. The 51-points scored pushed the game ‘over’ the ‘total’ for the third time in a Green Bay game this season.
Oddsmakers originally opened the Packers as seven-point home favorites, but most sportsbooks have taken the game off the board until it’s determined whether Rodgers will play or not. Either way, consider playing the ‘over’. Fourteen of Green Bay’s L/17 against the NFC have resulted in ‘over’ games.
Even though they have gone ‘under’ the ‘total’ in two of the L/3 weeks, Atlanta is still on a run of nine out of eleven ‘overs’.
