NFC Wildcard: Packers vs. Eagles!

 
Without a doubt one of the best games for this weekend in the NFL playoffs is the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles. This game features NFL superstars and great storylines and will be the must-see game of the weekend.
 
The latest NFL sports betting odds for this game as posted by Skybook have the Eagles listed as 2.5 (-119) point home favorites.
In week one of the season the Packers beat the Eagles, but that team is much different from the team that the Eagles will put on the field this Sunday. The big difference is Michael Vick at quarterback, something that did not happen for the entire game in the first meeting. Vick is undoubtedly the NFL comeback player of the year and has a chance to steal the MVP.
The Packers have history against them in this game as no team has won the Super Bowl after having a losing record on the road and no sixth seed has represented the NFC in the Super bowl. The Packers have Aaron Rodgers at quarterback and that has allowed them to be one of the best teams in the NFL and let them keep most of their games close. The Packers six losses came by a combined 20 points while the 10 wins came by an average of nearly 17.
Both teams have sports betting trends that favor them in this contest. The Eagles are 7-3 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 games as a favorite of 0.5-3.0 and 5-1 ATS in their last six games after accumulating less than 150 yards passing in their previous game.
The Packers are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game and 4-1 ATS in the last five games as an underdog.

Regardless of the outcome of this NFC Game, it will be a must-see television event as both teams attempt to advance in the playoffs.
