Packers Chargers Betting – Packers Look To Continue To Roll With Trip To San Diego
On the heels of a Super Bowl championship and a perfect seven wins to start the 2011 regular season, it is easy to forget how uncertain the future was for the Green Bay Packers at this point a year ago. As they make their way to the west coast to take on a talented San Diego Chargers’ team, Packers’ fans aren’t thinking any longer about just getting into the postseason as the prospects of sports betting perfection become a legitimate consideration.

NFL Betting Lines: Green Bay Packers – 6
The Chargers are undoubtedly among the toughest teams remaining on Green Bay’s schedule, but following wins over the New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, and Atlanta Falcons it is hard to imagine the Packers’ machine being stopped. San Diego has lost two straight on the road and are desperate to bounce back at home, but in the end it will come down to execution on the field.

Desperation doesn’t always turn in to wins, and for the Packers desperation has never even been a factor en route to seven straight wins to open the season. With Aaron Rodgers looking like a future Hall of Fame quarterback while leading the NFL’s third-ranked passing attack, and Green Bay’s defense doing just enough to hold their own on that side of the ball, the closest win margin on the team’s perfect run is six. The Packers will have used the bye week to deal with nagging injuries and regroup for the second half, and its scary to think of what could happen next.

While the bye week provides the chance for rest and recovery, as well as the ability to regroup and focus as a team, it doesn’t necessarily pan out as planned in all cases. The Chargers have lost both of their games since the week off, and now must face the defending Super Bowl champions before a date against the division rival Oakland Raiders. San Diego has done a lot of things right on both sides of the ball this season, but turnovers have really hurt the team overall. The Chargers’ defense ranks fourth against the pass, but will face its toughest test this sportsbook weekend.
Packers Chargers Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick
It is no secret that the Packers are on pace for perfection, and while it is still early, this is a focused and humbled group that has already proven they are capable of great things. The Chargers have been a mess since their bye and after another disappointing effort last week at the Kansas City Chiefs, they could be staring down a third straight loss to a Green Bay team that is superior to them in nearly every way.
