We’re only four weeks in, but this could turn out to be the most exciting Thursday Night Football game all season.
The 3-0 Packers prepare for their third straight home game as they take on an Eagles side reeling from a loss to the Lions. Green Bay have opened as 4.5-point favourites, but with both sides playing well defensively, we could be in for a tight one.
Philadelphia’s loss last week at home boiled down to turnovers and sacks. The Eagles turned the ball over twice, while Carson Wentz spent an uncomfortable four quarters in the pocket as the Lions racked up three sacks.
Home-field advantage has certainly played a part in the Packers’ undefeated start to 2019. Defensively, Green Bay’s secondary has been enormous ranking Top 10 in fewest passing yards allowed and first in takeaways, but there’s still plenty to be desired from the offence.
Aaron Rodgers and his receivers look a little out of sync, which has left new head coach Matt LaFleur no option but to rely on the running game. So far that has worked just fine with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams splitting the carries, but the Packers will need to find some rhythm through the air against an Eagles team that’s allowed only one rushing touchdown all year.
These two sides haven’t met since 2016, a game the Packers won 27-13. The Total has gone Under in four of their last five meetings at Lambeau Field, while the Total has also gone Under in four of Philly’s last six games.
With both defences operating on all cylinders, as well as both offensive units looking a little unstable, back the Double.
Tip: Philadelphia Eagles at $2.68
Value Tip: First Try Scorer: Zach Ertz at $12.00
