Football spread and line: Packers vs. Rams, Colts vs. Raiders

The point spread and betting line on the Week 15 football games Green Bay Packers vs. St. Louis Rams and Indianapolis Colts vs. Oakland Raiders.

Football spread and line: Packers vs. Rams, Colts vs. Raiders The Sunday football game between the Green Bay Packers (11-2) and the St. Louis Rams (3-10) will see one of the top NFC teams play against one of the worse. The Packers have already clinched the NFC North after a great 7-38 victory at home against the Raiders, but the burn from last year, when the Rams beat the Packers 23-20, remains and Green Bay will put some points against the struggling St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Considering the difference in the quality of football exhibited by these two NFC teams, the betting numbers on this game are excellent chance for the football bettors to put one on the bookies. At the online bookmaker Bodog Sports, the point spread on the Green Bay Packers vs. St. Louis Rams game is currently sitting at only -10 points chalk the Packers with the total at 45 points. The Packers are odds favorite at Bookmaker, as well, listed with line -425 and the line on the Rams is +355.

 Green Bay is indeed suffering from injuries, which could limit the team's scoring power this weekend. Limited Wednesday practice with the Packers had tight end Bubba Franks, cornerbacks Al Harris and Charles Woodson, wide receiver Koren Robinson, QB Aaron Rodgers, as well as tackles Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher. The Rams won't have many injury issues this week, with both quarterbacks Marc Bulger and Gus Frerotte doing full practice along with CB Eric Bassey. Betting trends show that Green Bay is 6-1 against the spread in its last 7 games and St. Louis is 4-1 against the spread in its last 5 games, but we still believe that the Packers will cover the spread on Sunday.

 Also on Sunday, another big favorite game will match up the Indianapolis Colts (11-2) and the Oakland Raiders (4-9). Even though the Colts have already ensured their participation in the playoffs, the Sunday game against the Raiders will give Indianapolis the chance to put an end to the AFC South chase. And the Raiders, of course, waived off the playoff dream a long time ago. No surprises here, at Bodog the point spread on the Indianapolis Colts vs. Oakland Raiders game is posted at -11 points chalk the Colts with total sitting at 45 points. The line on the Colts at Bookmaker is -600 and the line on the Raiders is set at +475. Both football teams are facing injuries this weekend, but the Colts remain in better position and should be able to cover the spread. Keep in mind that Indianapolis is 12-5 against the spread in its last 17 games and Oakland is 5-13 against the spread in its last 18 games.
