NFL Podcast - Warfare Wednesday

Damon D from BetUS.com had me and Gonzo of Daily Norseman on the NFL Daily Betting Podcast. He also interviewed KC Joyner from ESPN for some last minute fantasy tips.

Not so much on the warfare. Gonzo and I are just too nice. My main point was that the Packers are currently giving 2 1/2, which is so close that the oddsmakers just have no idea who's going to win this game. Damon D said that the home team is always given a 3 point advantage, so it's basically an even bet.

I expect this to be an ugly game. The Packers had an ugly week 1 win last season vs. Philadelphia last season, and they were completely flat in a week 1 loss vs. Chicago in 2006. Mike McCarthy's teams don't start fast out of the gate. The Packers offensive line is dealing with injuries to C Scott Wells and RG Josh Sitton (which should be good news for Minnesota's DTs Pat and Kevin Williams), RB Ryan Grant didn't have a single carry in the preseason, and QB Tavaris Jackson hasn't played in a couple weeks since his knee injury. Plus Minnesota's offense under Brad Childress has not scored a single point at Lambeau in the last two games. They scored a TD in 2006, but that was on an INT return. Both teams will have trouble sustaining drives and scoring points.
