NFL Week 8 Betting Odds and Picks: Green Bay Packers at Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams are 9-point favorites, at sports betting websites, over the Green Bay Packers. Should the best online sportsbooks spread remain thus, it’d match the biggest spread as an underdog in Aaron Rodgers’s starting career. In a regular season game, at least. The only other previous time Rodgers was a dog of 8.5 points was in 2014.  In September of that year the Packers lost to the Seattle Seahawks 16-36. Rodgers knows it’s going to be a doozy. So everything that literally and/or figuratively come off will come off. Gloves, straps, and even braces. He will have to be wary of his namesake Aaron Donald. The defensive tackle had four sacks, nine total tackles, six tackles for loss, five quarterback hits, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery. All in day’s work in the Rams’s 39-10 win over the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday.

Betting Green Bay Packers

Rodgers is 7-3 SU and 6-2-2 against the sports betting websites spread in 10 games after a bye week. The Packers scored 26.9 points per game in those contests. On the other hand, Green Bay is 0-2 SU and ATS on the road this season. They were outscored by 22 points in those two trips to Washington and Detroit.

Betting LA Rams

Starting QB Jared Goff might somewhat struggle against the Packers’s top 5 pass defense. But Green Bay is yielding more than 115 yards on the ground per game. That’s music to running back Todd Gurley’s ear. If the Packers allowed 49er Raheem Mostert 7.3 yards per touch, just imagine what Gurley is going to do. Who is Raheem Mostert? Exactly. And who is Todd Gurley? Just the guy who leads the league in TDs with 11 trips to the red zone.

Our Pick: Experts at sports betting websites will tell you Rodgers is the wild card that will offset the Packers’ long odds. Make no mistake; Green Bay’s QB is arguably better than anyone not named Tom Brady. And coming off a bye, he has had time to rest that knee. However, as mentioned above, he has been in this position only once before. And he was younger and healthier. And those Packers turned out to be much better than these Packers. And these Rams are just as good if not better than those Seahawks. So take a leap of faith and take the Rams and the points.
