NFL Free Pick: CAR/GB
Two teams still very much in the NFC playoff hunt square off at Lambeau Field this Sunday when the Green Bay Packers host the Carolina Panthers.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Packers -3 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 42.5 total points.
Key Trend: The Packers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games when playing Carolina. The total has also gone over in seven of the Panthers’ last 10 games when playing Green Bay.
Key Stat: The Panthers have really struggled throwing the ball this year, averaging just 194.3 yards per game through the air, while the Packers have been great stopping the pass, allowing only 185.5 passing yards per game.
Game Outlook: It’s hard to back the Pack after they were waxed on Monday night in New Orleans, but the Panthers have really struggled in their last three games. Jake Delhomme has not performed well and he goes against a stout Packers’ secondary this weekend. As long as Green Bay can stuff the run, they should come away with a victory and more importantly to bettors, a cover. It’s also extremely tough to play in Green Bay in late November and the Carolina defense just allowed 45 points to the Falcons on the road. We like the possibility of a shootout and think the Packers win a tight game.
