Green Bay Packers @ Arizona Cardinals

BSN Sports Pick : Packers -1

NFL Betting Total: 47 

The Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals will matchup in the first round of the NFL playoffs just one week after facing each other in Week 17. That result was fairly one-sided as the Arizona Cardinals rested – or tried to rest – their starters while the Packers played for keeps and rolled them 33-7. 

As mentioned, the Cardinals tried to rest their key members but a few of them still got hurt. On an errant Matt Leinart throw, Anquan Boldin took a shot and ended up with a high ankle sprain and an MCL sprain. He is going to be a game-time decision this week but if this were a regular season game, he would be out for at least a couple of weeks. The only bright spot is that the Cardinals are 5-1 in the last couple of years without Boldin in the lineup.


The Cards also suffered another injury to a top contributor as cover cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a knee bruise last week and is questionable for this week. Even if he plays, he likely won’t be at 100%. Safety Antrel Rolle is more likely to play but he’s also banged up with a thigh injury. 

And all of that is on top of the loss of left tackle Mike Gandy from a couple of weeks ago. He protects – or protected – Kurt Warner’s blind side but will now be out for a while. 

Meanwhile, the Packers are about as hot and healthy as it comes.  

Those who are into NFL football betting know that the Packers have won seven of their last eight games with their lone loss coming in Pittsburgh in miraculous fashion. The Packers are a team that led the league in interceptions and turnover margin, so they are a smart team when it comes to fundamentals. Considering how banged up the Cardinals are, they will need to win the turnover margin to compete in this game. 

The big issue for Arizona is that the Packers are going to rack up the points because of their potent offense while the Cardinals will have to score with a shorthanded offense against the No. 3 defense in the NFL. 

All signs point to a Packers win for a second week in a row.
