Green Bay vs. Philadelphia Week 1 NFL Predictions, Picks & Odds: Two NFC conference foes meet in an NFL week 1 picks battle as the Green Bay Packers take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia. Las Vegas NFL odds have placed the Green Bay Packers as -3(-115) point NFL predictions road favorites. The Packers earmed a 6-2 NFL picks record against the spread (ATS) on the road in 2009 while the Eagles earned a 2-2 NFL predictions record as home underdogs ATS. Since 2001, the Eagles lead the regular season NFL predictions series 5-1 but the Pack won the last NFL picks match-up 16-13 in Philadephia.
The Packers have received lots of national attention and popular buzz this off-season and many NFL predictions have Green Bay unseating the Minnesota Vikings to win the NFC North and potentially go far this NFL picks season and into the NFL playoffs.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has stepped into the conversation with the elites of the game and for good reason. Rodgers accumulated more than 4,400 passing yards in the 2009 NFL predictions season with 30 TDs, and is primed to get even better during the 2010 NFL picks season. His primary offensive weapons are back in receivers Greg Jennings, veteran Donald Driver, and up-and-coming tight end Jermichael Finley. Rodgers torched the Arizona Cardinals in the wild, Wild Card loss in the 2009 NFC Playoffs so the pressure is on to achieve that level of play on a regular basis.
The big match-up in this week 1 NFL picks contest will be the Packers high-flying “O” vs. the Eagles secondary. Shutdown cornerback Asante Samuel will cover one side of the field but the safeties are suspect and question marks surround the other corner Ellis Hobbs. Rodgers should be a play maker in today's week 1 NFL picks battle, but the Pack still must pass protect. The Eagles possess an attacking, aggressive defense front seven that like to get in opponent’s faces. Trent Cole brings pressure off the edge from his defensive end position but look for the Eagles to run a lot of games and gamble at times, sending their young LBs on blitzes.
Green Bay should be able to put points on the board with their dynamic offense in today's week 1 NFL picks matchup, enough to cover the NFL point spread in what might not be a close NFL predictions match-up in the fourth quarter.
