Posted by Derrick Harper on September 23, 2019 in

Predicted by many experts to be the NFC’s representative in the Super Bowl, the Philadelphia Eagles haven’t exactly looked like Super Bowl material to start the season. After Sunday’s home loss to the Detroit Lions, and having lost two games in a row, now a trip to Green Bay to play the undefeated Packers is on the horizon. Let’s take a look at the latest NFL Odds while making some predictions.

Eagles vs Packers 2019 NFL Week 4 Odds, Preview & Pick

Philadelphia Desperate for Win

The 1-2 Eagles will travel to Lambeau Field for a Thursday night tilt with the Packers. Green Bay is currently sitting at 3-0 after defeating the Broncos on Sunday. Man of the experts were thinking that with all of the changes that took place in Green Bay that this could be a tough season for them, but things have started off well for the Packers. In the Aaron Rodgers era, the Packers have been known for their high-scoring offenses.

However, this season things have changed. The Packers defense has been the unit that has been getting things done. With defensive coordinator Mike Pettine calling the shots, the upgraded defense has been the talk of the town in Green Bay. Carson Wentz and company will have to be ready for the Packers defense.

Things have been tough for the Eagles offense, as injuries, and ball security issues have plagued the Philly offensive unit. Wentz has played well, but he has been without his top two receivers. In the loss to Detroit neither Alshon Jeffery or Desean Jackson played. Nelson Agholor scored two touchdowns, but also had a costly fumble.

The running game has also had it’s issues for Philadelphia as Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard haven’t given the Philadelphia offense much of a spark. The rookie Sanders fumbled twice in the same possession on Sunday.

If Philadelphia wants to get things done against Green Bay, they’ll need more from their two running backs.

Packers Scoring Bunches

As for the Packers, they haven’t been lighting things up on the offensive end. Matt LaFleur’s offense has scored early and often on the scripted plays, but after the first quarters in their three games, the Packers offense hasn’t gotten much done. The coaching staff will need to correct this issue if they want to continue their winning ways.

On Sunday, the Packers defense had five sacks against the Broncos. In their three games this season, the Packers defense has caused at least three turnovers in two of them. Two of those turnovers led to Packer touchdowns. If the Packers defense can continue this trend, they will be tough to beat this season.

These two teams haven’t met since 2016. In that meeting, the Packers traveled to Philadelphia and beat the Eagles 27-13. In this clash of playoff hopeful teams, if the Eagles want to avoid a 1-3 start, they will need to find a way to put the ball in the endzone against a stout Green Bay defense. The Eagles will also need to limit their turnovers if they want to stay in the game.

Green Bay’s offense will need to figure out how to score points after their first three or four offensive series.

Tough Travels to Green Bay

Any time a team travels to Lambeau Field for a night game, they’re in for a tough experience. With Green Bay coming into this game undefeated, and with a very good defense, things are going to be hard for the Philadelphia Eagles.
