The Green Bay Packers have already accomplished an important goal, which is to win the NFC North. Now, they’ll focus on building momentum heading into the playoffs. Up next for them is a date with the Carolina Panthers, who are eyeing to prevent a three-game skid.
Betting Preview for the Carolina Panthers vs Green Bay Packers Regular Season Week 15 Game on December 19, 2020
Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay
When: Saturday, December 19, 2020, 8:15 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NFLN
Betting on the Carolina Panthers (+9)
Regular Season Record: 4-9
The Panthers suffered their second loss in a row last Sunday, falling prey to the Denver Broncos at home, 32-27. Carolina had plenty of head-scratching decisions and mistakes which cost them a victory, and they will have to clean that up going forward. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was steady, but that’s really the best you can describe his performance. Bridgewater completed 30 of 40 passes for 283 yards and didn’t get intercepted but also had zero passing touchdowns. Despite that, there’s always hope for a team to take advantage of Green Bay’s inconsistent defense. It wasn’t that long ago when the Jacksonville Jaguars nearly upset the Packers. There was also Mitchell Trubisky tossing three touchdowns (with two interceptions) in Week 12 against Green Bay. Taking those into account, Bridgewater and the Panthers’ offense that is averaging 23.6 points should be a threat to the Packers.
The Panthers are 5-0 in their last five home games.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-9)
Regular Season Record: 10-3
The Packers just clinched the NFC North title for the second year in a row after Aaron Rodgers and company defeated the Detroit Lions last Sunday on the road, 31-24. The Packers are also now on a three-game winning streak, as they have also beaten the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles in Weeks 12 and 13, respectively. Rodgers has been on fire during that three-game stretch in which he had 796 passing yards and 10 touchdowns with zero interceptions. He’s also benefited from Green Bay’s sturdy pass protection, as he was only sacked twice in that span. The turnover-prone Drew Lock had four touchdowns with zero picks against Carolina last Sunday, so just imagine the kind of havoc a quarterback of Rodgers’ level could do in Week 15. Defensively, the Packers have also stepped up of late, with just 210.7 passing yards allowed per game in the last three games.
The Packers are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games at Lambeau Field.
The Packers win, 34-26.
