NFL Betting News: With no shot at playoffs, Packers shut down Rodgers

12.20.2017     09:00 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Saturday's Minnesota-Green Bay pointspread (Vikings -9) tells you all you need to know about who will be taking snaps for the Packers. At 7-6, Green Bay gave it a shot with Aaron Rodgers, fell short at Carolina, and have now placed him on IR for the remainder of the year. The Vikings have clinched a playoff berth but could finish anywhere from no. 1 to no. 4.

"This was clearly in Aaron Rodgers' best interest," coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's not happy about it. It's a hard day for him . . . We all understand and appreciate and respect his competitive spirit, but we felt as an organization this was in his best interest."

NFL Gambling Alert: Green Bay's Rodgers expected to play vs. Carolina

12.13.2017     10:25 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
All signs points toward Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers starting Sunday's game at Carolina. Rodgers hasn't played six Week 6. The Packers were 4-1 SU, 3-2 ATS, and 4-1 O/U with him under center. CRIS line history shows the Panthers opened -2, were bet up to as high as -5.5, and now back down to -3/-2.5. At 7-6, this is really a do-or-die spot for the Packers with 10 wins likely needed in order to get into the playoffs. There are currently seven NFC teams with eight wins or more.

NFL Handicapper Betting Preview: Baltimore Ravens at Green Bay Packers

Baltimore at Green Bay
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: Batimore -2.5 O/U 38
CRIS Current: Baltimore -2 O/U 38
Recommendation: Baltimore

We’ve seen the Packers offense for three games without Aaron Rodgers now, and Green Bay hasn’t been able to move the football effectively in any of them. Yes, the Packers were able to beat lowly Chicago by a TD last week; playing with a rookie QB in a game where Bears head coach John Fox literally gave away a touchdown with an ill-fated challenge. But they gained only 5.3 yards per play for the afternoon, converted only one of their three red zone chances into touchdowns, and did not pass the eye test any more than they did the previous week in a Monday Night Football home loss to the Lions.

To make matters worse for the Packers, the injury bug continues to bite Mike McCarthy’s squad. Their offensive line is riddled with key losses once again, with Brian Bulaga placed on IR and three starters listed as questionable for Sunday. They’ve got injuries all over the place on defense too, with Morgan Read more

NFL Handicapping: Green Bay's injuries go well beyond Rodgers

10.17.2017     10:15 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
While all of the talk has centered on Aaron Rodgers' injury and how much he's worth to the pointspread, it was pointed out by Teddy Covers on today's Sportsmemo Podcast that Green Bay is one banged up football team, particularly along the offensive line.


 Hundley, like Rodgers, has exceptional mobility and a strong arm. The problem for Hundley is that Rodgers is far from the only injury affecting Green Bay. Three of the Packers' starting five offensive linemen — LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring), RT Bryan Bulaga (concussion) and LG Lane Taylor (knee/ankle) — left the game against the Vikings with injury, leaving only C Corey Linsley and Saints legend Jahri Evans as sure bets to play in front of Hundley on Sunday. Battered by injury all season, the Packers have started a different offensive line combination in every single game so far and allowed 23 sacks, tied with Detroit for worst in the

NFL Gambling Update: Bengals hint run-game a focus moving forward

09.20.2017     08:58 AM     Printer Friendly

Bettors are probably wondering what Cincinnati's offense will look like following the firing of offensive coordinator Ken Zampese. This article suggests the Bengals will be more committed to the run and less committed to asking Andy Dalton to win the game with his arm. Cinci is currently a +8.5 road underdog to Green Bay. The total is sitting at 44.5.

“In the past it’s been up and down,” Boling said.  “I definitely think to start the year out you play a team like Baltimore that might have one of the best run defenses in the league. But I think even in a situation like that you have to stay committed to it. You really just have to keep hammering whether it’s there or not. At some point you hope to bust one.”

NFL Preseason Gambling: Green Bay's offense should thrive with Hundley under center

08.08.2017     11:30 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Two years ago, Green Bay rookie quarterback Brett Hundley posted big numbers during the preseason (630 yards, 7 TDs, 1 INT). Last season, he barely played due to a bum ankle. Hundley is now healthy and slated to start Green Bay's preseason opener on Thursday vs. Philadelphia. Without Hundley, the Packers went under the total in all four preseason games last year. In two preseason games in 2015 in which Hundley took a majority of the snaps, Green Bay scored 26 and 38 points which both games flying over the total.

Asked what he’s looking for from Hundley, Van Pelt said, “Operating within the system, making the checks that he needs to make, any protection adjustments that need to be made. And then after that, just the rhythm of the feet and staying in his time clock and working progressions. I think he’s done a really good job of that. This last week we’re really proud of the way he’s practiced.

NFL Betting Trends: Packers-Falcons first game to be totaled 60 since 2000

01.17.2017     09:08 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Well, what do we have here? An NFL total of 60? When was the last time that occurred? Good question and according to one database, it hasn't since October 29, 2000 when the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers closed 62 (and landed 59). Since then, there have been a handful of 59/59.5's but no 60's. What's interesting is that Packers and Falcons met during the regular season; Week 8 to be exact. That total closed 51. The game, however, went flying over as Rodgers and Ryan combined for 56-of-73, 534 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

NFL Gambling: Bettors gear up for Conference Championship weekend

01.16.2017     11:37 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC blog entry.
The scoreboard operator at the Georgia Dome in expected to be busy at Sunday’s NFC title clash between the Packers and Falcons. Both offenses should be primed to light up the scoreboard as evidenced by the fact this game is currently lined at 60/60.5 at every major offshore and Las Vegas sportsbook. Aaron Rodgers continued his elite level play in Sunday’s thrilling 34-31 win over Dallas. He completed 28-of-43 passes for 356 yards and now has a spectacular 21-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio during the Packers’ current 8-0 SU, 7-1 ATS surge. The absence of Jordy Nelson was negated by “step up” efforts from Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison (each with three or more catches). Tight end Jared Cook also hauled in six passes including the all-important one that set up the game winning field goal. But Green Bay’s defense was exposed, especially in the secondary, where injuries remain plentiful. Dallas rolled up 429 total yards including 302 through the air. That doesn’t bode well for their matchup against Matt Ryan and an Atlanta offense that posted some of the league’s best offensive numbers. Note that the Falcons ranked tops in the Read more

NFL Handicapping: A look at this weekend's four Divisional Round matchups

01.09.2017     12:19 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Atlanta’s offense was both visually and statistically (33.8 ppg and 415.8 ypg) dominant for much of the season. They play host to a Seattle defense that obviously has a strong pedigree, particularly in the secondary. But that dominant secondary has been exposed at times this year and was recently dealt a key injury with Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas out. Detroit couldn’t take advantage of Thomas’ absence as it was clear Matthew Stafford was not 100 percent due to a dislocated finger. And the Lions’ offensive line was banged up and missing two starters. In the end, the Seahawks surrendered only 231 total yards. It will be a much more difficult task this weekend as Atlanta’s offense is in a far better position to successfully move the football. Matt Ryan (38 TDs, 7 INTs, 69.9% completion rate) has a host of skill position weapons and like we saw against Arizona and Green Bay, Seattle can be exposed through the air. There are questions about Atlanta’s defense which ranked in the bottom third of the league in a number of categories. After struggling to run the football for virtually the entire regular season, Thomas Rawls went for 161 yards against Read more
