Eagles vs Packers Betting Prediction Week 4
If you're sports betting at SugarHouse PA, Green Bay is currently 4.5-point favorites over visiting Philadelphia in primetime on Thursday.
The line opened at most sportsbooks around -2.5 or -3 for the Packers, but initial action quickly drove that line up to where it is now despite the hometown Eagles taking part in the game.
Eagles Betting Preview Week 4
It feels like each week something new plagues the Eagles, which are now 0-3 against the spread after a 27-24 home loss to Detroit.
They overcame bad defense in Week 1, committed three turnovers in Week 2 and most recently, special teams and missed opportunities on offense caused their Week 3 downfall. The line opened at most sportsbooks around -2.5 or -3 for the Packers, but initial action quickly drove that line up to where it is now despite the hometown Eagles taking part in the game.
Philadelphia is still missing key pieces in CB Ronald Darby and WR DeSean Jackson, and may even miss WR Alshon Jeffery once again. Can Carson Wentz carry an undermanned team on both sides to a win (or at least a cover) at Lambeau?
Packers Betting Preview Week 4
The bad news is that the Packers' new offense under Matt LaFleur hasn't clicked yet, but the good news is that the defense has picked up the slack, allowing 35 points in three games.
Green Bay is undefeated on the schedule and against the spread after a second consecutive home win in Week 3, and it's easy to see them going 4-0 in both categories. Star QB Aaron Rodgers was quoted as saying "At some point, we're going to have to do our job," in reference to the offense. He isn't wrong, but the new-look defense has helped provide some cushion to an evolving unit under a rookie coach.
Free NFL Picks: Eagles vs Packers Prediction
One team struggling mightily, dealing with injuries and traveling on a short week. The other team has improved in its biggest area of weakness and is finding ways to win despite not playing its best football.
While public action in Pennsylvania could come in on Philadephia due to Eagles fans flooding the market, that can't be counted on. Given the Packers' performance so far compared to the Eagles and the fact that the game is at Lambeau, it seems more likely the non-Eagles fan faction of bettors at sports betting sites in PA will actually drive the price up on the home team.
That means if you want the Packers, take them now against the spread before this opens up any more.

Thursday Night Football Picks: Eagles-Packers Total
This total opened up in the high-40s but has quickly been brought down around 45 (-110), where it stands at SugarHouse PA. All three Thursday games to this point have wound up under to this point, but not all TNF picks and predictions can be of the predictable variety.
Two things are eventually going to happen: the Packers' offense will kick it into gear and its defense will allow more than 16 points in a game. We can't be sure this is the night for both, but we're taking our chances. Once this total dropped from around 48 to where it is now, we've been handed a key number of 47.
Pick: Over 45 Points (-110)
