NFC North Bet – Green Bay Packers @ Washington Redskins Preview

Donovan McNabb takes on Aaron Rodgers this Sunday.The Green Bay Packers head to Washington to face off against the Redskins in a battle of teams that had big victories in week 3 of NFL action. The Packers were able to fend off a late comeback attempt by the frisky Detroit Lions at home. Washington, meanwhile, jumped out to an early 13-0 lead in Donovan McNabb’s return to Philadelphia. Michael Vick was injured and the Redskins defense was able to shut down Kevin Kolb and win the game.

Online betting odds: Green Bay -2.5, 44 total

Why To Bet On The Packers

Although the Packers won and it pushed them to 3-1 on the season, Green Bay must be less than impressed with the way they won the game. They jumped out to a big lead on the Lions, but were unable to keep their foot on the gas pedal, nearly losing the game at the end. I expect Aaron Rodgers and company to perform a lot better on the road against Washington, as they look to cement their status as a Super Bowl contender. The Packers defense has performed well on the season, and they should be able to get to McNabb.

Why To Bet on the Redskins

Momentum can mean everything in the NFL, and the Redskins finally have some back. Washington started out the season with a huge upset of the Dallas Cowboys, but faded in the weeks after with a loss in devastating fashion to Houston, followed up by a terrible performance against lowly St. Louis. The Redskins are back on track following the big Northbet win over the Eagles, and I expect McNabb to keep things on track at home. The Redskins have seemed to play to their level of competition thus far this season, rising to the occasion when the team in front of them is of high caliber.

How the Game Will Play Out

Though both offenses can score, I feel the best play on this game is on the under. Both defenses should rise to the occasion to keep the game under the listed 44 total. To pick a side, I like the Packers to win by a field goal. Monitor the spread, and if it rises over three points, consider a play on the home underdog in Washington.
