Week 7 NFL Betting Odds, Packers vs Panthers

NFL Betting - Odds

Riding a three game winning streak after a 1-2 start, the Green Bay Packers host the Carolina Panthers in a Sunday afternoon matchup.

The Packers offense is still looking to find it’s running game (Vikings game not-withstanding) so the entire fortunes of the team doesn’t always fall on Aaron Rodgers’ shoulders, as it did last weekend. While Rodgers has proven he’s capable, not putting teams away when they have the chance has been a problem for the Packers in the last few years.

On the defensive side, the Packers are looking to hold the opposing quarterback to a passer rating below 85.0 for the sixth game in a row (MIA-Ryan Tannehill, 81.5 / MIN-Christian Ponder, 45.8 / CHI-Jay Cutler, 82.5 / NYJ-Geno Smith, 64.1 / DET-Matthew Stafford, 61.6).

Passing game aside, the Panthers’ offense sports what has become the Kryptonite for the Packers’ defense, a mobile quarterback who can run the read/option. To make matters worse, Panthers QB Cam Newton is just starting to get his running game going, perhaps finally fully healed from that preseason ankle injury. Newton ran the ball 17 times for 107 yds last week, easily out-pacing the team’s running backs.

To me, this all equates to a very competitive matchup in Lambeau, one that will be closer than the 7.5 points the Packers are favored by.

    Must put Panthers to sleep early on…

    Pack never beats teams with winning record. CAR is 3-2-1. And CAR = +7. Seems like a no-brainer.

    “The Packers don’t shell out first-round picks for Darrelle Revis.”

    This was written by Wes Hodkiewicz on another site today. Wes would have us believe that it is far better to waste your R1 picks on OL/DL that are are mediocre or worse than to use the pick to take the best CB of his generation. Is this blatant homerism or what? DR or Justin Harrel? DR or BJ Raji? DR or Bryan Bulaga? DR or Nick Perry? DR or Derrick Sherrod? C’mon Wes, get real! Any GM in his right mind would prefer DR over the junk pile of R1 picks TT has selected.
