NFL Football Betting Odds:
Green Bay Packers
The Packers enter this weekend’s matchup sporting a 3-2-1 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NFC North. Right now the division is led by the 4-2-1 Vikings, so Green Bay is very much in the running for the lead in the division. However, with a 2-2 record in their last 4 matchups, the Packers will need better consistency moving forward. The defense hasn’t been all that great this season, seeing as how they’ve given up 61 points in their last 2 games. Furthermore, considering they’re going up against the 3rd best scoring offense in the NFL, the Packers will need their defense to play their best football if they are to stand a chance of winning this matchup.
Players to Watch: Aaron Rodgers (1,997 passing yards, 12 TD, 1 INT), Jamaal Williams (224 rushing yards, 0 TD, 0 F), and Davante Adams (557 receiving yards, 6 TD, 47 REC).
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams charge into this Week 8 matchup sporting an unblemished 7-0 record that undoubtedly pegs them as one of the best team in the NFL. On top of that, the Rams are practically unchallenged in the NFC West with their nearest threat being the 3-3 Seattle Seahawks. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that LA has a massive advantage this Sunday. Right now they’re scoring 33.6 while the Packers are only putting up 24.7. Defensively they’re also a much better team than Green Bay since they give up a slim 18.3 while the Pack allots 24.0. On top of that, there’s no question that Los Angeles has more playmakers than the Packers. As long as they’re able to contain Rodgers this Sunday, the Rams should have no problem winning this contest.
Players to Watch: Jared Goff (2,130 passing yards, 14 TD, 5 INT), Todd Gurley II (686 rushing yards, 11 TD, 0 F), and Robert Woods (602 receiving yards, 3 TD, 41 REC).
