Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers Online NFL Betting Picks
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
For the last couple of weeks online NFL betting players have speculated as to which coaches are on the hot seat. Following this past weekend’s fallout in Green Bay that saw Mike McCarthy get sacked, we don’t have to speculate any further. The move was justified given the Packers lack of success this season as well as their 20-17 loss to the Cardinals this past Sunday. So, will Green Bay be able to put up a decent fight in this Sunday’s Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers matchup? Let’s check on the NFL legal betting odds to find out.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers – Sunday, December 9th
When: 1:00 pm ET

Stream: Fox Sports Go, NFL Game Pass
Online NFL Betting Odds:
The Falcons fly into this Week 14 matchup sporting a weak 4-8 record that ranks them as the worst team in the NFC South. There’s no question that Atlanta had high hopes for the season but clearly that didn’t pan out. The biggest thing holding Atlanta back this season is a mediocre defense that is giving up nearly 30 points per game. Similarly their offense just isn’t as explosive as we’ve grown accustomed to seeing in the past. Nevertheless, the Falcons should still have a shot of upsetting the Packers in Lambeau. After all, Green Bay is on a 3-game losing streak and is going through some upheaval at the moment.
Players to Watch: Matt Ryan (3,814 passing yards, 25 TD, 5 INT), Tevin Coleman (514 rushing yards, 2 TD, 1 F), and Julio Jones (1,323 receiving yards, 3 TD, 86 REC).
Green Bay Packers
The Packers enter this Sunday’s matchup sporting a 4-7-1 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the division. With the 8-4 Chicago Bears leading the North, it’s pretty clear that the season is over for Aaron Rodgers & Co. Firing a coach before a season concludes is never a good sign but at the very least the organization can focus on rebuilding right away. As for this Sunday’s matchup, the Packers have a small defensive edge over the Falcons. Right now the Pack is giving up 23.9 per game, which is slightly less than the 27.8 that the Falcons allot.
Players to Watch: Aaron Rodgers (3,504 passing yards, 21 TD, 1 INT), Aaron Jones (642 rushing yards, 7 TD, 1 F), and Davante Adams (1,115 receiving yards, 11 TD, 85 REC).
