This game set to kickoff on December 28, 2021 at 8:20pm at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

I’m pumped up and ready to make every some money on this matchup, so let’s get right into it!

54% of the betting public have their money behind Arizona have the home favorite.

Green Bay Packers Betting Preview

After the 38-3 embarrassing loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1, the Green Bay Packers have caught fire. They have now won 6 straight games in a row and sit at the top of the NFC North at 6-1 overall. Last week, they picked up the 24-10 win at home against Washington where the defense gave up 430 total yards, but put together four huge red-zone stops. The Packers rushing attack was unproductive last Sunday. Running back Aaron Jones had only 6 carries for 19 yards. He’’ll now have to go up against this Cardinals defense that gives up an average of 115.7 yards per game, so those rushing stats should greatly in this game, because if it doesn’t, they’ll lose this Thursday Night Football game by double digits.

Aaron Rodgers has been playing like an MVP lately and currently +1200 to win the award, but on the other side of the field you have Quarterback Kyler Murray who has the second best odds under Josh Allen at +400 to win it. Aaron Rodgers has a passer rating of 89.7 with 837 yards, 7 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in 4 games against the Cardinals in his career.

The NFL Prop Bet of the Day is actually going be on one of these two quarterbacks. Our last NFL Prop Bet hit easily on Monday Night with Jameis Winston and we’re looking to cash in again, so for free access to this NFL Prop being released all you have to do is text  “TNF” to 702-234-0597 and I’ll reply back with the prop move when it’s released.

Green Bay on the road this 2021 NFL Season are scoring an average of 20.5 points per game and giving up an average of 25.5 points per game of defense.

The Packers are 6-0 against the spread in their last 6 games and the total has gone over in 5 of Green Bay’s last 5 games against an opponent in the NFC West.

Arizona Cardinals Betting Preview

The Arizona Cardinals come into this game a perfect 7-0 after destroying the banged up Texans last Sunday. In that 31-5 win, Kyler Murray put up 261 yards in the air, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception.

Newly acquired Tight end Zach Ertz led the team with 66 yards and a touchdown. Ertz is probably loving life right now being traded from the Eagles to join this team that’s already stacked with talent. Murray now has options to throw, Ertz,  Hopkins, Kirk and you can’t forget the stud AJ Green.

The good news for Arizona is that the Packers defense hasn’t been the best this season at stopping the run, so running backs James Conner and Chase Edmonds should put up big numbers in this game.

Arizona at home this season are scoring an average of 27.3 points per game and have the third best defense in the league. Their defense is only giving up an average of 16.3 points per game.

The Cardinals are 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games and the total has gone under in 6 of Arizona’s last 9 games.
