Why Bet on the Green Bay Packers +7:The Packers looked like a rejuvenated team after their victory last weekend against the Washington Redskins. All year we’ve been waiting to see Aaron Rodgers look like his old self, and finally in this victory we saw him do that, as the Packers scored repeatedly in dominant fashion, eventually winning 35-18. We have to wonder – is Rodgers back, or was this a fluke? Either way, the Packers have actually been able to rely on their defense as well this year. Although Arizona’s offense has been among the best in the league, scoring over 30 points per game on average, the Pack will be able to shut down their high-powered attack if they keep playing like they did last Sunday, keeping Kirk Cousins on his toes, and limiting the Redskins to only 18 points.
Why Bet on the Arizona Cardinals -7:Recency bias is the only thing you need to have faith in the Cardinals in this one. Sure, they lost 36-6 in the last week of the regular season to the Seattle Seahawks, but there was no point in them winning that game anyway. Expect Arizona to come out firing on all cylinders in this one. The Packers have shown promise a few times this year, and afterwords, have always let fans down. The Cardinals are the favorites to win the Super Bowl at this point according to oddsmakers, so it’s easy to see why they’re so favored to win this game.
