Green Bay Packers at Philadelphia Eagles
Monday, Nov. 28, 8:30 p.m. (ET) ESPN
NFL Line : Philadelphia -3.5
Total Line: 47.5
The Packers’ steady decline over the past few weeks in the midst of a straight-up four game losing streak has them on the brink of missing the playoffs this season at 4-6 on the year. They have gone 1-3 against the spread with BetAnySports during this slide and the total has gone OVER in all four losses while getting outscored 153-107. Green Bay has lost five of its last six road games SU and it is 1-4 ATS in its last five games on the road.
It is going to take much more than Aaron Rodgers throwing the ball all over the field to get past Philadelphia on Monday night. The Packers’ run game has been almost nonexistent this season due to injuries to Eddie Lacy and James Starks and its defense has basically collapsed without Clay Matthews in the lineup. Lacy is done for the season but the good news is that both Sparks and Matthews are off the injured list. However, each showed signs of rust in last Sunday’s 42-24 loss to Washington.
The Eagles fell to an even 5-5 (SU and ATS) on the year with last Sunday’s 26-15 loss to Seattle as 6.5-point road underdogs with there NFL pick. The total stayed UNDER 43 in that game after going OVER in four of their previous six contests. Philadelphia does come into the NFC tilt with a perfect 4-0 record ATS in four previous home games this year with the total staying UNDER each time.
Quarterback Carson Wentz continues to struggle with consistency during his rookie campaign, but he has also shown the ability to run this offense at a very high level against some quality opponents. Philadelphia continues to rely heavily on a running game that is ranked seventh in the NFL in rushing yards per game. Its defense has also stepped up its game as the fourth-best unit in points allowed (18.6). Philly’s defense has also been strong against the pass which could be a key factor in this matchup.
