Packers at Eagles: Game preview, odds, prediction

The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football in Week 12. Here is a game preview, the betting odds, and game prediction.

It is a full slate of 16 NFL games in Week 12. The final game will be Monday Night Football between the Green Bay Packers (4-6) and the Philadelphia Eagles (5-5). Kickoff from Lincoln Financial Field will be at 8:30 p.m. ET on Monday, Nov. 28. ESPN will have the telecast.

Green Bay is reeling as a football team at 4-6. While the Packers are only two games back of the 6-4 Detroit Lions in the NFC North race, this has been the worst Green Bay has looked in quite some time. The defense can’t stop anybody and nobody is getting open for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to throw the ball to.

Philadelphia enters Monday Night Football at .500 with a 5-5 record. Though the Eagles are in last place in the NFC East, they are only 1.5 games back of the rival Washington Redskins (6-3-1) for the second NFC Wild Card spot. Surpassing the 9-1 Dallas Cowboys might be insurmountable for the 2016 Eagles, but Philadelphia can definitely play its way into an NFC Wild Card berth.

Odds

Point Spread: Philadelphia -4
Moneylines: Philadelphia -205, Green Bay +175

According to OddsShark.com, the Eagles will be laying four points at home to the visiting Packers. The associated moneylines are Philadelphia -205 and Green Bay +175. This game’s over/under comes in at a combined 47.5 points.

Here are the trends to know with regards to the Packers: 1.) Green Bay is 2-4-1 against the spread in its last seven games. 2.) The Packers are 1-5 straight up in their last six games. 3.) They have gone over in four of their last five games. 4.) Green Bay is 1-4 against the spread in its last five road games. 5.) The Packers are 1-5 straight up in their last six road games.

Here are the trends to know about the Eagles: 1.) The Eagles are 2-5 straight up and against the spread in their last seven games. 2.) Philadelphia is 4-1 straight up and against the spread in their last five home games. 3.) The Eagles have gone under in four of their last five games at home.

This should be an interesting game on Monday night. Both teams need a win to stay alive in the NFC Playoffs race. Yes, Green Bay is more desperate for a victory than Philadelphia, but the Eagles can’t afford to fall below .500 at any point in the strong NFC East.

The difference in this game will be the Eagles defensive line. While Green Bay has a strong offensive line, the Eagles front-seven has the playmakers to throw even Rodgers’ jazz-beat timing off. Philadelphia wins a tight one on Monday Night Football.

Pick: Eagles 24, Packers 20
