Sunday Night Football Picks – Green Bay Packers at Philadelphia Eagles

Sportsbook
By Betmaker Team

The Green Bay Packers visit the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football on NBC. The Packers come into this game at 4-7 SU and 4-7 ATS with five games going over the total and six going under, while the Eagles are 9-1 SU and 5-5 ATS with six games going over the total and four going under. This is pretty much the last stand for the Packers if they are to have any chance of making the playoffs, as a loss would drop them to 4-8 and realistically out of contention. The Packers have struggled almost all season on offense and it won’t be easy to put points in the board on Sunday night against a stout Philadelphia defense that is 2nd in the NFL in fewest yards allowed this season. The Eagles are listed as a 6.5-point favorite at BetRivers with the total at 46.5. Let’s look at Sunday Night Football picks.

Green Bay Packers at Philadelphia Eagles NFL Free Pick

 

We picked up a nice win last Sunday night with the Chiefs and Chargers going over the total. This time around we are going the other way, as there is a good chance we see both teams running the ball a lot on Sunday night and taking time off the clock. The Packers don’t figure to have much success throwing the ball, as Rodgers and his receivers haven’t been on the same page all season, plus Rodgers is playing with a broken thumb. The Eagles have been excellent against the pass al season, so expect Green Bay to run the ball a lot. The Eagles should also be running the ball on a regular basis, as the Packers defensive weakness is against the run. The trends also point to a low scoring game, as these teams have gone under in eight of their last ten meetings. I think you can make a case that this total should be in the low 40’s. We’ll go under the total with the Packers and Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

 

The Pick: Under 46.5
