Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Seahawks are 2.5-point favorites to beat the Packers. The total, meanwhile, sits at 49 points. As of this writing, 51% of the public betting tickets are on the Packers to cover the point spread.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers completed 19-of-28 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 10 walk in the park over the Dolphins. Both touchdown tosses went to Davante Adams, who's now tallied nine scores on the year. The Packers' passing attack admittedly appeared shaky at times, but it wasn't needed on this day. Aaron Jones led the way with 15/145/2 on the ground, allowing Rodgers and crew to coast for most of the afternoon. There will be better days ahead for Rodgers, who's now on pace for 4,872 yards and a 30:1 TD:INT ratio. He remains a matchup-proof QB1 in Seattle in Week 11.

Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Chris Carson (hip) will play on Thursday Night Football against Green Bay. Thus, Seattle plans on having Carson, Mike Davis, and Rashaad Penny ready to roll against Green Bay, creating a muddy backfield picture. Carroll was noncommittal on each back's role, emphasizing that all three runners can't get the ball frequently in the same game when everyone is available. Carroll, Davis, and Penny will all be high-risk flex options in Thursday night's game.

NFL Betting Trends

Green Bay

The over is 23-9 in the Packers’ last 32 games overall and 5-2 in their last seven games played on Thursday.

Seattle

The under is 6-2 in the Seahawks’ last eight games played overall and 4-0 in their last four games played on Thursday.

Prediction

While the Packers can score in a blink thanks to Rodgers, the big-play ability of Russell Wilson hasn’t been on display much this season. Seattle has morphed into one of the few ball-control teams in the NFL and that has kept the scoring in check in Seattle games this season. Granted, the over did cash a week ago in the ‘Hawks game against the Rams but L.A. employs one of the highest-scoring offenses in the league. Seattle’s previous three games all went under the total as the team is averaging just 24.3 points per game (15th in the NFL). The Seahawks remain stout defensively, however, ranking ninth in points allowed at 21.3. I like the under.

NFL Week 11 Prediction: Packers/Seahawks under 49
