NFC Wild Card Betting Green Bay Packers at Arizona

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

NFL betting on Sunday features an NFC Wild Card matchup between two teams that just met last week as the Arizona Cardinals host the Green Bay Packers in a game that can be seen on Fox television.

The Cardinals are favored in football betting even though they were routed by Green Bay last week.

NFL betting had the Packers rolling over the Cardinals 33-7 last week. Now Green Bay will try to do it again on the same field.  It may not be as easy this time since the Packers were facing a lot of Arizona backup players a week ago.  Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 21 of 26 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown in the win. Charles Woodson returned an interception 45 yards for another TD.  It was the seventh win in the last eight games for red-hot Green Bay.

Arizona played quarterback Kurt Warner for only a quarter. Backup Matt Leinart was awful again and the Cardinals were routed in NFL betting.  Things could be a lot different this time since Arizona will be playing everyone and trying to win.  Injuries could also play a part in this NFL betting matchup.  Woodson was hurt for Green Bay in the win last week while Arizona suffered injuries to cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (bruised left knee) and wide receiver Anquan Boldin (right ankle).

NFL betting has a lot of numbers in favor of Green Bay. The Packers are the hottest team in the NFC and they are just as hot against the NFL betting pointspread. They are 7-0-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. Green Bay is also a very solid football betting underdog. The Packers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog. And Green Bay plays well on the road. The Packers are 20-7-1 vs. the football betting odds in their last 28 road games.

Arizona is not a slouch in NFL betting.  The Cardinals are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 home games. Overall, the Cardinals are 14-7 vs. the football betting line in their last 21 games overall.

Looking at the total we see that four of the last six Green Bay games when they were road underdogs went over.  22 of their last 32 vs. NFC teams have gone over.  Arizona though, has gone under in six of their last seven overall.
