This week “Monday Night Football” features two teams on the edge for closure of week 12. The Packers (4-6) find themselves on a four-game losing streak and in third place in the NFC North. The Eagles are 5-5 after starting 3-0. They’re last in the NFC East, but still alive in the wild card race.
Both teams are on the outside of the playoff picture. But with a win, both sides would give themselves a shot at climbing back into the postseason. That’s what is at stake, now it’s up to you to double the excitement and possibly your weekly bankroll, HeritageSports has huge cash back on parlays.
The Green Bay Packers are -4 point road underdog. 4-1 straight up and against the spread in their last five games against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Packers can avoid a fifth straight loss with a road win.
The Packers responded to a virtual must-win game against the Washington Redskins last week with another dud of a performance, falling to 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS over their last four games and to 4-6 SU and 3-6-1 ATS on the season.
The defense has had no answer for opposing offenses over the course of the team’s four-game losing streak, allowing 38.3 points per game over that stretch with back-to-back games of surrendering over 40 points. With only six games left in the regular season, Green Bay’s time to figure things out is running out.
In their last 19 games as a betting underdog, the Packers are 3-16 SU and 6-12-1 ATS
Betting Line / Total: Philadelphia -4 / 47.5 Points
Trend: The Packers are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games against the Eagles.
Trend: The Eagles are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games on a Monday.
Philadelphia’s 3-0 SU and ATS start to the season keeps feeling like a more distant memory as the team is just 2-5 SU and ATS over its last seven games. The Eagles have allowed 15 points or less in their five wins and 24 points or more in the five losses, indicating clearly that this team isn’t built to win in a high-scoring game.
With a tough stretch of games approaching down the stretch, the Eagles need to take advantage of their next two games against Green Bay and Cincinnati. Philadelphia is 5-1 SU and ATS in its last six appearances on Monday Night Football.
Monday night’s total is set at 47.5 points. The UNDER is 6-1 in the last seven games between these two teams.
This game figured to have major playoff implications when it was scheduled during the offseason, but the 2016 season hasn’t played out as these two teams had hoped. As it stands, both teams enter this game mired in slumps and looking for some kind of spark that they can use the rest of the way. Sign up at Heritagesports.eu
