NFL betting on Friday, August 22nd wraps up with a game in Denver between the Broncos and the Green Bay Packers.
Most of the football betting attention will be focused on Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers but the Broncos may get more of the NFL betting wagers since they are at home. Here is a look at this football betting matchup.
NFL betting will have the Broncos favored in this game because of the home field advantage but not by very much. Denver is coming off a poor season and until they prove they have turned the corner they will not command the same respect in NFL betting they once did. NFL betting stats show that Denver is led by quarterback Jay Cutler. He had a tough season a year ago but many football betting experts are predicting a rebound season for Cutler. The talent surrounding Cutler is a question mark, especially since wide receiver Brandon Marshall is going to miss some time early in the season due to suspension, according to football betting information. New addition Darrell Jackson is expected to fill in nicely though this season for Denver according to NFL betting experts. The running game also is a question mark although traditionally the Broncos have been able to run the ball, regardless of who is in the backfield.
NFL betting information shows that the story in Green Bay is the play of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Replacing the legendary Brett Favre is not easy and Rodgers is scrutinized every week by NFL betting experts. He has a lot of talent around him though according to NFL betting experts, including running back Ryan Grant and receiver Donald Driver. The Green Bay defense is also very solid. Overall, the Packers have more talent than the Broncos but since the game is at Denver it is likely the Broncos will be a small NFL betting favorite. Under Mike McCarthy, the Packers have been excellent as an NFL betting favorite but poor as an underdog in NFL betting. That is something to keep in mind as you look at the football betting pointspread for this game on Friday.
