Weekend Clash Between New York Giants And Green Bay Packers

December 24, 2010

This weekend the Green Bay Packers will battle against the New York Giants. For the Packers this game will be a “must-win” game. They are in danger of missing the playoffs as they are now just 8-6 on the season. In order to ensure their positioning in the playoffs, this season the Giants need at least one more win. After their loss to the Eagles, they are 9-5 on the season.

The total for the game is currently off whereas in NFL betting lines the Packers will be the 3 point favorites in this game.

The Packers need to win out in order to ensure a playoff spot as they lost in a close one against the Patriots last week. As the Packers’ starting quarterback is still trying to recover from a concussion sustained in week 14, he may or may not be available for this matchup.

However the Packers seem to struggle to win as many games as you’d expect they are a great team on both sides of the ball. In this one they will be playing at home. In Lambeau Field, they have won 9 of their last 10 games.

Last week the Giants lost in a heartbreaker against the Eagles. In this game their loss last week could play a major role. However the Giants managed to lose the game as time expired; they were up 3 touchdowns in the 4th quarter. A team can fall into a tailspin with that kind of losses.

In order to ensure that they do not continue falling after their loss to Philadelphia, the Giants need a strong start to this game.

Preview of NFL Draft: Philadelphia Eagles

April 1, 2010

A strong season last year with an 11-5 record was the Philadelphia Eagles, but some changes are looked at as the season approaches. Their former starter Westbrook has now been lost by them at running back and a feature back to replace him in this offense is needed. On top of that the Eagles have had question marks around their quarterback situation all offseason and the draft will be a time when they make things happen, molding their team for the future.

By making sure they pick up football betting star CJ Spiller in the first round the Eagles could solve part of their offensive questions. A guy that has the explosiveness to make a difference in the offense no matter who the team has lining up behind the center is Spiller.

The Eagles may not get Spiller as their first choice as he is likely to go early in the first round.  However, some other decent quarterbacks are there available that might help them trade up for Spiller. A pickup like Spiller would really prepare this team for success.

A solid number one receiver for NFL betting favorite team, the Eagles is DeSean Jackson but more help is always looked for by them at this position as it seems nobody has been healthy and consistent at this position in years.  Dexter McCluster from Ole Miss could be an explosive weapon in the 2nd round. He may not be the most consistent possession receiver, but his speed could spread the field and take pressure off the other receivers on the team.

Some question marks have also been with the Eagles at linebacker with a few offseason changes. The pick of Dekoda Watson from Florida State could solve this problem in the 3rd round.

NFL Betting: Public backing Eagles against Steelers

September 19, 2008

NFL Football betting fans like the Philadelphia Eagles to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, according to public betting information from Sportingbet.com.

Philadelphia is a 3-point favorite in NFL Betting Odds at Sportingbet.com and the over/under total is 44.5. The Eagles are getting 64 per cent of the wagers placed on the game at Sportingbet.com.

Sportingbet.com oddsmaker David Main said Friday the main reason bettors are backing the Eagles is the play of QB Donovan McNabb, who is second among NFL quarterbacks, with 46 completions on 70 attempts for 642 yards and four TDs.

“McNabb looks like he is finally back to his best and may also have (wide receiver) Reggie Brown fit again after his hamstring injury, although even if Brown doesn’t play McNabb does seem very confident throwing to rookie DeSean Jackson,” Main said.

Conversely, the fact that Pittsburgh pivot Ben Roethlisberger is nursing a sore shoulder isn’t helping the Steelers’ chances against the Eagles.

“Roethlisberger is playing with a bad shoulder and again the bettors seem to have picked this matchup out and decided that Philly is the better team.”

Other betting favorites of NFL football bettors this Sunday include the New England Patriots (12½-point favorites) over the Miami Dolphins, with the Pats getting 68 per cent of bets, and the New York Giants (13-point favorites) over the Cincinnati Bengals, with the Giants getting 67 per cent of wagers.
