NFL Matchup - Bet on New Orleans Saints vs. Green Bay PackersPublished on September 8th, 2011
And finally the NFL season is back along with one of the favorite batting sports out there and boy is it a big match-up tonight with Green Bay Packers hosting the New Orleans Saints. The last two Super Bowl champs are opening the season against each other and the bookies are overwhelmingly favoring the Packers, the defending Super Bowl champions. So what is on offer tonight for the opening of the NFL season? There is a number of interesting bets for this match-up tonight and here are the several that we propose for you.
Points Over /Under at 47,5 is offered by BWin and we feel that playing under should be the way to go here. The reason why is that the Saints will look to run a lot tonight with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles taking turns tonight in the running game while they try to keep the ball out of Rodgerís hands. They will succeed to a certain extent trying to slow down the Packerís offense, while on the other side let us not forget that Packers allowed only 15 points per game last season and their defense looks to be strong this year again both against the run and pass offenses. Points Under pays 1,91.
And since we feel that the Packers, especially at Lambeau Field, are a better team we feel that another interesting bet to look at tonight is Half time /Full time bet which again should favor Packers and for them to lead at half time an win a game is 1,72 odd. Probably the best bet for tonightís game.
This will be an entertaining game to watch so place your bets and enjoy the match-up of two premier teams in the NFL tonight.
