Betting.net / Week 8 Packers at Cardinals for Thursday Night Football

Week 8 Packers at Cardinals for Thursday Night Football

Publish Date: October 27, 2021
Fact checked by: Alyx Tzamantanis

After a disappointing matchup last week on Thursday Night Football, it’s time for a nice reward of two playoff caliber teams battling it out in Week 8. The 6-1 Packers haven’t lost since Week 1 against the Saints. The Cardinals haven’t lost a game yet this year. Keep reading to find your best bets on the spread, scoring odds, and prop bets for this must watch Thursday Night game. Betting.net’s NFL football betting strategy guide will help you maximize your bets this Thursday, and throughout the second half of the season.

The Spread: Cardinals -6.5 (-110)

The undefeated Cardinals score a lot, and when they are ahead they will run up the score. The amount of offensive weapons Arizona has is staggering. Kyler Murray is a potential MVP , Edmunds and Conner have been a poignant running duo, and the fact they have 5 pass catchers that can be starters in fantasy is mind boggling.

Furthermore, the Cardinals are playing at home, giving them even more of an advantage.

To put the nail(s) in the coffin, superstar receiver Davante Adams and number two receiver Allen Lazard both landed on the COVID list and will miss the game. One should assume the Packers will look for tight end Tonyan more in this matchup, but the Cardinals are the top team against tight ends. They have yet to give up a touchdown to a tight end this year, and are averaging only 25 yards a game to tight ends. The Cardinals defense is the best in the NFL stifling the playoff contending Titans, Rams, and Browns in previous matchups, while embarrassing the Jaguars, Texans, and 49ers.

The Online Sportsbooks found across our site show a pretty even split of people betting the spread, but there are more people favoring the Cardinals. All signs point to the Cardinals winning by more than a touchdown.

The Points: 50.5 (-110)

The game script is going to be a shootout, but just how many points will be scored? In short, a lot. The Cardinals are averaging 32 points per game. The Packers average 24 points per game. If Green Bay played like the Cardinals they would score more, but they tend to take early leads against bad teams and run the ball, which eats up the clock.

Despite the Packers missing their top two receiving targets, they have Aaron Jones playing like a stud this year, catching balls in the backfield. The odds of Jones scoring a touchdown are predictably high. This leaves useable pass catchers Cobb and Tonyan as regular starters who should get more targets. Valdes-Scantling could possibly return from the IR for this matchup, but it is unclear even if he does return how integrated he will be. Rookie Amari Rodgers has a chance to really shine in his first opportunity to play on more than just 10% of snap counts.

If both teams can hit on their average scores of the year the game will be well over 50.5 points.

Props

Anytime Touchdown Scorer: Zach Ertz (+165)

Ertz scored a touchdown last week, just after being with the team for about a week (he was traded from the Eagles). He looked good, and now he has had some time to assimilate, learn the playbook, and practice with his new quarterback. In a game predicted to be a shootout, he seems like an easy choice with a good payout.

For a deeper bet, Packers’ rookie Amari Rodgers (+450) could help you win it big. He hasn’t been targeted more than twice this season (Catching both targets). However, he will be given a real opportunity with Adams and Lazard (and possibly Valdes-Scantling) out. He has the highest ceiling out of activated receivers for the Packers.

Zach Ertz for over 30.5 Receiving Yards

Ertz caught passes for 66 yards last week. Furthermore, the Packers are not good against tight ends, giving up over 31 yards to Kittle, Hockenson, Kmet, and Seals-Jones this year. And while only giving up 21 to Juwan Johnson he did score 2 touchdowns against them.
