It's one of the largest spreads in this weekend's divisional round of the playoffs. With the Packers looking suspect and the Arizona Cardinals looking like legitimate contenders for the Super Bowl, it'll be a heavy upset for a lot of folks if Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers can win it or even keep it close. The oddsmakers expect it to be a shootout though with the over/under being just under 50 points. At the least, it looks like it might be one of the more explosive games in this round.
Teaming up with our friends over at Bookmaker, we know the gametime line and over/under for Saturday's battle. They've even given us some of their analysis on why the lines are like they are.
Packers at Cardinals (-7, 49.5)The only thing that’s moved since this game’s spread opened is the juice. You’ve got a lot of the mainstream public backing the Packers while the smarter bettors are on Arizona. I think this one ends as ugly as the first meeting. The Cardinals have the personnel to really limit what Green Bay does best. And while the Pack defense looked inspired and motivated against Washington, this Arizona offense is on a completely different level.
Who do you have winning this one? Can Aaron Rodgers throw in some of his magic and upset what some people think are the Super Bowl favorites? Or are the Cardinals just too much to handle for a team that has been rather mediocre all season long?
