NFL Betting – Green Bay Packers (5-5) at New Orleans Saints (5-5)

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

NFL betting on Monday Night Football should be excellent this week as the New Orleans Saints host the Green Bay Packers.

Both teams come into the game at 5-5 and part of the playoff picture although Green Bay’s chances look a lot better than New Orleans’ simply because the Packers play in the NFC North.  Online football betting odds have the Saints as small home favorites in NFL early odds Week 12 numbers.

NFL betting on New Orleans might be popular in this game because of the desperate situation the Saints are in.  A loss here would severely hurt their playoff chances as most NFL betting experts believe a record of 10-6 will be needed to win a Wild Card spot this season.  The Packers are in much better shape because at 5-5 they are in a three-way tie for the lead in their division.

The Packers have won six of the last ten meetings against New Orleans and covered the NFL betting number in seven of the ten.  At New Orleans, the teams have split their last six meetings according to NFL betting stats.  They have not played in New Orleans since 2002 when the Saints won 35-20 according to NFL betting results.  The Packers have been a fabulous road underdog in NFL betting since 2005 going 15-8-1. On the other side the Saints are a putrid 7-14 as home favorites in NFL betting during that same time period. It is somewhat surprising to see the Saints favored on the NFL early odds Week 12 board.

An interesting NFL betting trend concerns the total in this game.  7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams have gone over the online football betting number including six of the last seven.  That could definitely happen again this season since the Saints have the #1 ranked offense in the NFC according to online football betting stats and a defense that is near the bottom.  Green Bay has also shown they can score points in bunches as they proved last week in a 37-3 rout of Chicago.  The Packers are 16-11-2 to the over on the road since 2005 according to NFL betting stats.  The Saints are a slight over team at home during that same time according to online football betting statistics.  The total on this game is the highest on the NFL early odds Week 12 board at 52.5. ESPN definitely has an appealing Monday Night Football game and one you don’t want to miss out on.
