Monday Night Football: Denver Broncos favorite against the Packers

Betting preview and point spread for the Monday night football game between the Green Bay Packers and the Denver Broncos.

Monday Night Football: Denver Broncos favorite against the Packers Week 8 of NFL will close with the Monday night football game between the Green Bay Packers (5-1) and the Denver Broncos (3-3). There is plenty of opportunity for the bettor in this game, especially when he Broncos are favored by the odds makers. At the betting website Bodog Sports the Broncos are listed with odds -170 and the Packers are underdog with odds +150 on winning the game on Monday. The point spread for the Green Bay Packers vs. Denver Broncos game is sitting at -3 points chalk the Broncos and the total is posted at 42.5 points. Betting trends show that Green Bay is 5-1-1 against the spread in its last 7 games and Denver is 1-7 against the spread in its last 8 games. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Denver's last 5 games when playing Green Bay. The last time these two football teams met (December 2003), the Packers won 31-3.

 In the well-rested Green Bay camp the main weapon will again be Brett Favre, who is mainly responsible for the team's leading position in the NFC North, ahead of the Lions, Bears and the struggling Vikings. The Packers are leading the NFC North in offense and defense, but are trailing behind every team in the NFL in rushing. But Favre just became the NFL career leader in touchdown passes and attempts and will play against the Bronco's 20th overall defense with 340.8 yards allowed per game, so weather permitting, it will be a passing game by the Packers this Monday. In Denver Jay Cutler is improving with every game he plays, helping the team to the biggest NFL upset last week against the Steelers, beating Pittsburgh 31-28. Cutler was 22-out-of-29 for 248 yards last week and will give the Packers really hard time on Monday night.

 What may prevent this game from going against the bookies is the number of injuries in the Green Bay's team. Questionable in the Packers for Week 8 remain wide receiver Ruvell Martin, DE Cullen Jenkins and day-to-day were running backs Vernand Morency and DeShawn Wynn, DE Mike Montgomery, and CB Charles Woodson. And coach Mike McCarthy said that he will wait until gameday to decide if the new Packers receiver Koren Robinson will play. The Broncos will play without wide receiver Javon Walker (knee) and RB Travis Henry is questionable for Week 8. CB Dre' Bly and TE Tony Scheffler are with 50-50 chance to join the team on Monday night.
