NFL Games of the Year: Packers getting points in Week 11
Odds are out for the biggest and best games of the upcoming NFL season. Covers Expert Matt Fargo gives you his insight into some of these marquee matchups and predicts where the odds could move before kickoff.
NFL Week 11: Green Bay Packers at New York Giants (-1.5)
Past History: New York 3-2 SU, 4-1 ATS, 4-1 O/U since 2008
Early look at the Packers: Green Bay started slow but finished strong to win its second straight NFC North title last year. The Packers are sizable favorites to repeat as division champions but even after winning 11 games, their preseason win total is set at 10 (-120). That may be considered a lack of respect for some but one look at the brutal schedule will tell the story why.
Early look at the Giants: After winning the Super Bowl two years ago, expectations were high for the Giants going into last season. And after a 6-2 start, things were looking good until a 3-5 finish left them home for the playoffs. They are slight favorites to win the NFC East but it will once again be a wide-open division. Still, we should see an improvement from their 9-7 record from lat year, albeit not a huge one.
Where this line will move: This game takes place late in the season, so the line could go either way based on the records of each team coming in. This is a Sunday night game, though, and the home team usually gets the betting love.
