NFL betting heavily favors the Green Bay Packers on Sunday as they host the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Packers are coming off a fortunate win at home against Chicago while the Bengals lost at home to Denver in football betting on a bad luck play at the end of the game.
NFL betting on Green Bay is going to be popular when the Packers are at home and that is the case in this game. How the Bengals come into Green Bay is anyone’s guess after last week’s impossible loss. The Bengals gave up an 87-yard TD catch to Brandon Stokley on a tipped pass that cost them the game. "The ball just took a bad bounce. The ball just popped up the air," Cincinnati safety Chris Crocker said. "Leon was trying to make a play on it. He made sure the receiver didn’t catch it. Nothing he did was wrong."
The Packers didn’t need a miracle play to beat the Bears in football betting but they were still fortunate as quarterback Aaron Rodgers found Greg Jennings for a long TD late in the game to defeat Chicago. Rodgers was pressured throughout the game but found Jennings when it counted and the Packers won in NFL betting. Rodgers was sacked four times. "When I watched the film, as I kind of thought as I left the stadium last night, they had a real good defensive scheme, but there was nothing on that tape we haven’t seen before or hadn’t seen before from other teams," offensive coordinator Joe Philbin said, "They executed their defense well and we didn’t at times."
NFL betting trends indicate that the Bengals are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog and that they’re 1-4 in football betting in their last 5 games in September.
The Packers are 8-2 in NFL betting in their last 10 games in September and 1-4 in football betting in their last 5 games as a favorite.
There are some interesting NFL betting trends as well. The Under is 5-0 in the Bengals last 5 games overall and 4-1 in NFL betting in the Bengals last 5 games as a road underdog. The Under is also 4-1 in the Packers last 5 games overall. The Over is 9-3 in the Packers last 12 games as a home favorite in NFL betting.
