Titans Packers Betting Predictions – Packers Chase Second Seed In NFC Versus Titans Sunday

Posted by Tony Bryant on 12/19/2012 5:37:13 PM

The Green Bay Packers faced an uphill climb in the NFC North after losing three of their first five games, especially since at that point the Chicago Bears had won four of their first five. However, the division landscape has shifted dramatically over the past few weeks, as the Packers have won three-straight and eight of their last nine including a 21-13 win at Chicago last Sunday that pushed them two sports betting games ahead of the Bears in the NFC North with two games to play. After clinching the division title, the focus for Green Bay will now shift to this week’s contest against the visiting Tennessee Titans and the chance to stay alive in the pursuit of the conference’s second seed.

The Titans capitalized on their spoiler role with a 14-10 win over the New York Jets that officially eliminated Gang Green from playoff contention, but this will be a much more difficult test. Tennessee has lost seven of its eight games against teams that are still in the postseason hunt, and a trip to Lambeau Field won’t make it any easier on them.

Two key plays made the difference in last week’s win over the Packers, as Chris Johnson’s 94-yard touchdown run and Jake Locker’s 13-yard touchdown run was enough for the Titans to knock off New York. It certainly helped that the Tennessee defense was able to force five turnovers, although at times it did seem as though Mark Sanchez was simply giving it away. Johnson is 141 yards away from hitting the 1,300-yard mark and will need a big game to keep this one close. Locker has struggled with injuries and inconsistencies all season, and could become rattled if he takes a couple of shots.

Rattled is something that Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers never seems to get, even though he has taken more shots this year than most other NFL passers. Rodgers has thrown for 3,588 yards and 32 touchdowns despite injuries to key offensive players and inconsistent play from his offensive line, and his leadership has been among the keys to Green Bay making its run to the top of the division. The Packers’ defense has also come together with rookie cornerback Casey Hayward among the emerging stars. Hayward leads the Packers with six interceptions this season, as Green Bay continues to improve on that side of the ball.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While it would appear as though the Titans stepped up last week and knocked off a team desperate for a win to keep its playoff hopes alive, the fact of the matter is that the Jets handed them that game and made it look way too easy. That won’t happen this week against a determined Green Bay team that is fighting for one of the top seeds in the NFC, and likely needs to win its remaining two online betting games to have that opportunity at a first-round playoff bye.
