Green Bay Out to Add More Misery to Already Ugly Season for Atlanta
The Packers are 6-0 at home, host the Falcons on Monday night and can stay atop the NFC standings with a victory. Everything is falling into place for Aaron Rodgers and company once again. Atlanta is 5-7 overall, 2-4 on the road and has won just one non-divisional game this year. Everything is falling into place for the South to be represented by a team under .500. We like the Packers at home on Monday night as they stay red-hot.
Packers continue to pile up the points
Green Bay is fresh off an impressive win over the AFC East-leading New England Patriots, is 6-0 at home and is 9-3 overall. Another win on Monday night will keep the Packers at the top of the NFC standings with the Cardinals, who somehow took down the Chiefs on Sunday. The Packers are flying high behind the play of Rodgers, who has 32 touchdown passes to just three interceptions this season and should hit the 3,500-yard passing mark tonight.
Falcons running out of time to back into a division title
There is no single team from the NFC South that wants to win this division. The Falcons can take a one-game lead over the Saints on Monday night if they grab an upset victory over the Packers. Atlanta comes into this contest with a 5-7 overall record and will still hold a share of first place even if they lose this game. It really is a win-win situation for Atlanta despite their poor record.
On Monday night, the Falcons and Packers will meet for an NFC contest that somehow features two division leaders. We will place our wager at BetOnline.ag, where the Packers are favored by 13 points. We are going to spend 20 percent of our bankroll on Green Bay and the -13 (-110) spread as they topple the Falcons by a wide margin tonight.
