Eagles vs. Packers Betting Preview – NFL Week 11

When: Sunday, November 16th 2014 at 4:25pm ET
Where: Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin
Watch: FOX

The Philadelphia Eagles 7-2 (6-3 ATS) and Green Bay Packers 6-3 (5-3-1 ATS) meet at Lambeau Field on Sunday. Both of these teams are right in the thick of things in their division races and this is an important NFC match-up between two strong sides.

Both of these teams absolutely dominated their opponents last week. The Packers beat up on the Bears (55-14) and the Eagles won against the Panthers (45-21). If these offenses continue producing this game could be one of the highest scoring games of the year.

Eagles vs. Packers Betting Lines

Bet on PHI @ GB at the Bovada Sportsbook (USA Allowed).

Green Bay is getting most of the action due to this game being played at Lambeau. I wouldn’t be surprised if the point spread went up before the game. Surprisingly, the 55-point over/under line is only the second highest total (NE @ IND is 57.5 Points).

PHI @ GB Stats & Injuries

These two teams are very similar. They score a ton of points and have averages defenses that give up a lot of yards. The Packers are very healthy except for a few minor injuries. Philly isn’t too bad either, but Nick Foles is still out and that may hurt them this week.

Packers vs. Eagles Point Spread Analysis

Foles was out last week as well and Mark Sanchez completed 20 of 37 passes for 332 yards and 2 TD’s. Jordan Matthews caught both of the TD passes and finished the game with 7 receptions for 138 yards. Jeremy Maclin was held to just 3 receptions though.

Aaron Rodgers only completed 18 of 27 passes against the Bears, but six of those completions went for TD’s. Five players caught a TD pass in the game with Jordy Nelson finishing with two TD’s. The Packers also gained 132 yards on the ground against Chicago.

The Packers score a lot of points, but they’re only averaging 256.4 PYPG (10th) and 101.3 RYPG (18th). One reason is because GB has a +10 turnover margin. Rodgers has only thrown 3 INT’s compared to 25 TD passes and Eddie Lacy has only lost one fumble.

I’m interested to see how the offense looks against the Eagles. I believe the Eagles defense has been playing better than it appears on paper. Philly allows 251.7 PYPG (22nd) and 115.2 RYPG (19th), but that’s because opposing offenses get a large number of plays.

Philly doesn’t give up many points, but the yards makes sense, as Chip Kelly utilizes a very fast pace. That gives opposing offenses a lot of opportunities. So while the Eagles allow a lot of yards they have held tough when it comes to giving up touchdowns.

Green Bay’s defense is allowing 229.1 PYPG (10th) and 142.6 RYPG (30th). The Eagles offense should have no problem picking up big yards on the ground. Philly’s offense only averages 114.8 RYPG (13th), but the pass game has been solid (289.6 PYPG – 5th).

This is a tough game because I definitely don’t trust Sanchez at QB, but the Eagles have a huge edge on the ground. LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles should both be able to run freely at Lambeau and that’ll help keep the Packers offense off of the field.

Eagles vs. Packers Predictions

These two teams don’t play each other very often, but they played last year and the Eagles won (27-13) at Lambeau. I don’t expect their defense to hold the Packers to 13 points, but they should be able to stay within the +5 point spread with their run game.

You could wait, as I expect we’ll be able to get +5.5 or +6 by Sunday in this game. Most of the action will be on GB at Lambeau with Sanchez at QB for the Eagles, but if Philly can run freely they’ll not only put up a ton of points, but they’ll eat up the clock.
