Why Bet the Green Bay Packers?

The Green Bay Packers are one of the favorites to win the NFC. Green Bay is a big favorite to take down the NFC North over Minnesota, Detroit and the Bears. The Packers are once again anchored offensively by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers will have his full cast of weapons available, starting with Jordy Nelson.

Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison will play on the other side of the ball, along with Martellus Bennett as the tight end. The Packers have a tough start to their 2017 season. Green Bay goes on the road to Atlanta next week, before they come home to host the Cincinnati Bengals and Chicago Bears.

Why Bet the Seattle Seahawks?

Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks are really good as well. The Seahawks have owned the NFC West over the last several seasons. Last season, the Seahawks were downed by Atlanta in the postseason. Seattle starts this season on the road, but then heads home in Week 2 to host Sean Francisco, before a trip to Tennessee to face the Titans.

Are the Seahawks a safe bet in NFL odds?

The Seahawks have Russell Wilson at the quarterback spot again. Seattle has Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham as his top targets. Thomas Rawls will get the start at running back, but look for Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise to get chances as well. The Seahawks have one of the best defensive units in the league, anchored by cornerback Richard Sherman.

Fun Game ends with Home team Winning

The Green Bay Packers are at home, and there is something about Lambeau Field that makes it awfully tough to win for the visitors. If any team is aware of great home field advantage, it’s the Seattle Seahawks. This game is on the road for them. Aaron Rodgers is ready for a monster season, and this is going to be the start of it.

Look for the Packers to win this game. Rodgers and the offense moves the football on the tough Seattle defense, while Seattle turns the ball over one too many times. In the end, the bet to make in this game is on the home team. The final bet here is the Green Bay Packers -3 over the Seattle Seahawks.
