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.
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.
