Green Bay is the Big Surprise in Online NFL Betting

Online NFL betting on the Green Bay Packers has been very successful this season. The Packers have gone a surprising 7-1-1 against the NFL betting pointspread.

Quarterback Brett Favre is defying the online NFL betting experts and having an excellent season. Online NFL betting experts did not see the Packers having any kind of a season in 2007. The Packers were thought of as a below .500 football team by many online NFL betting gamblers. Favre was thought of as washed up and old but he has surprised everyone this season. Online NFL betting experts know that he became just the second player in National Football League history to surpass 60,000 passing yards in Green Bay’s 34-0 humiliation of the Minnesota Vikings. Favre now has 60,257 passing yards and trails only Dan Marino, who threw for 61,361 yards for the Miami Dolphins.

Green Bay has shocked most online NFL betting experts and it started last year. Online NFL betting experts know that the Packers have won 12 of their last 13 games dating back to last season. Green Bay has done it primarily through the air although against Minnesota they got 119 yards from running back Ryan Grant. Although Green Bay has not run the ball much they have spread it out when throwing the ball. Favre completed passes to 10 different receivers in the game against Minnesota. As NFL betting gamblers look down the road it could be the Packers start to run the ball more. The cold weather in Green Bay could mean that Grant gets the ball more and the NFL betting totals head lower on Packers’ games. Lambeau Field is one of the best home fields in online NFL betting and must be taken into consideration late in the year. Favre has become known as the cold weather expert so very few online NFL betting gamblers will want to go against the Packers at home late in the season.

Green Bay looks like a solid playoff contender according to online NFL betting experts but there are still some tough games remaining. The Packers still have road games at Dallas and Detroit. Online NFL betting can change at a moment’s notice but the 2007 NFL betting season has been a good one so far for the Green Bay Packers.
