NFL football gambling expectations are looking “Super” for the New England Patriots as they are the most impressive team on the NFL betting board in December.
The New England Patriots will host the Green Bay Packers on NBC Sunday Night Football with a starting time of 8:30 PM ET. Sports-Gambling will have the side and total for this potential Super Bowl preview so be sure and open your account to be ready for all of the action.
Green Bay is coming off a 7-3 loss at Detroit with the football betting lines to fall to a record of 8-5 straight up and 7-6 against the spread with 9 of their games going under the total. The Pack trails Chicago by 1 game in the NFC North.
Worse than losing to Detroit was the fact that quarterback Aaron Rodgers was injured with a concussion and had to leave the game in the first half. Rodgers is questionable for this game and Matt Flynn will start if Rodgers cannot answer the bell.
The Green Bay running attack is just 24th in the NFL as the offense is near totally dependent upon Rodgers and the 8th ranked passing game. The defense has been outstanding and ranks best in the NFL for points allowed.
New England is in Super Bowl form and playing their best football of the season with a 5 game winning streak to improve to 11-2 straight up and 8-4-1 with the NFL betting odds as 11 of their games have gone over the total. The Patriots destroyed the Bears in a Chicago blizzard last week 36-7 after humiliating their AFC East Division rival New York Jets 45-3 the week prior.
The Patriots lead the Jets by 2 games in the AFC East now. Tom Brady has a 109.9 QB rating with a 29/4 TD/INT ratio for one of his best seasons ever as he has had to lead a rebuilt offense. The defense was also rebuilt and after a slow start it has climbed to 17th for points allowed.
New England has covered just 1 of their last 6 NFL football gambling matchups against Green Bay and the series has gone under the total in 4 of the last 5 meetings.
