Eagles vs. Packers Betting Preview: Odds, Predictions, and Picks

Bob Wankel - September 26, 2019

Raise your hand if you had the Eagles getting off to a 1-2 start ahead of a daunting Week 4 trip to Lambeau Field tonight.

If your hand is up, put it down, weirdo—but also, congratulations. You were wayyyy ahead of the curve on a confluence of events most people didn’t see coming. Hope you pounded the Eagles’ opponents at all of the PA online sportsbooks.

Injuries, turnovers, drops, and mental lapses have each plagued the Eagles throughout a sluggish and disappointing start that has included back-to-back exasperating and completely avoidable defeats. Now, Doug Pederson’s short-handed team will have to find a way to vanquish the undefeated Packers at Lambeau Field on a short week.

Perhaps a different setup will help change the Eagles’ fortunes this week because playing as the betting favorite hasn’t exactly worked out thus far, so maybe playing as an underdog for the first time this season will bring about a welcomed change.

As for Green Bay, favorite or underdog–it has not mattered as the Packers have raced out to a perfect 3-0 start, winning their opener as a road underdog in Week 1 at Chicago and then following that effort with back-to-back wins as a home favorite. The Packers, who have won five of their last six meetings with the Eagles, will have an opportunity on Thursday night to earn their first 4-0 start since the 2007 season.

Can the Eagles weather the storm and stabilize their surprisingly turbulent start to the season, or will the Packers stay perfect at the season’s quarter pole? Let’s get into it with our Eagles-Packers betting preview.

Easy Bet: Ben Simmons 100/1 to Make First 3PT Tonight

Russ Joy - January 29, 2019

Prop bets. Love them. Hate them. Take advantage of them. PlaySugarhouse Sportsbook has installed 100-to-1 odds that Ben Simmons will make a three pointer tonight against the LA Lakers.

That seems like the biggest steal of the century. Simmons, of course, has attempted one “three pointer” on the season – a heave from near half-court in a loss to the Nuggets. In fairness, Ben has thrown up twelve three-point attempts in his career, though many of them have come from beyond half-court. Perhaps the entire Kardashian/Jenner court will be in attendance and provide some magic for young Ben. Will Kanye yell, “Shoot, you coward!”? Tune in to see.

Either way, we’re at the patronizing real odds (not those fake Harper odds) portion of Ben Simmons’ three-point journey. Shoot your shot, kid, sometimes, as you know, it goes in.
