NFL betting lines favor Green Bay on Monday night as they host the Baltimore Ravens.
Both teams are right in the middle of the Wild Card race in their respective conferences so this is a key matchup in football odds.
NFL betting lines favor Green Bay by 3-point with the total being 43.5. The Packers and Ravens have not played in four years but the intensity should be high since neither team has much margin for error in the playoff race. "Our margin of error is going to need to be a lot less than it has been in the first 11 games because it’s December football now," Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy said. "This is the most important football that we’ll play all season." The Packers have won three straight overall and have had a little extra time to prepare after routing Detroit on Thanksgiving.
Baltimore got a huge win last week as they defeated Pittsburgh. If they could get past Green Bay on Monday in NFL betting lines they would be positioned very well to make the playoffs since three of their four remaining opponents have losing records. "Our goal right now is just to win the game, no matter what it looks like, or what goes on in between, the first quarter, the fourth quarter," said Baltimore receiver Mark Clayton.
Green Bay’s offense has been rolling in the last two games in NFL betting lines as they have put up 906 yards and 64 points. Their defense has also been improved as they lead the league in fewest yards allowed. Baltimore’s defense has also been good as they have allowed 17 points or less in their last five NFL betting lines games.
The Packers and Ravens have met three times in NFL betting lines history and the Packers have won two of the three games. Baltimore has been a good road team vs. the NFL betting lines. The Ravens are 10-4 in football odds in their last 14 road games. The Ravens are 17-8 ATS in their last 25 NFL betting lines overall.
Green Bay has a reputation as a good home team but the reality is that Green Bay is 2-5-1 in football odds in their last 8 games as a home favorite.
Four of the last five Baltimore games have gone under the NFL betting lines. Nine of the last fourteen Baltimore road games have stayed under the NFL betting lines. Green Bay is more of an over team vs. football odds. 12 of their last 16 as home favorites have gone over the NFL betting lines total.
