We’re well into the NFL season now and October has been a successful one for the Packers. The win over the Arizona last Thursday saw them go to 7-1 and clear at the top of the NFC North.
So, what does November and early December look like producing for the Packers? December must be included of course as that’s when the Packers host the Bears, who will be looking for revenge after the Packers throttled their arch rival two weeks ago.
The next month or so is an important time for all NFL sides. It’s also a good time to look at the NFL markets available at bookies. Betting on sport is now possible in Iowa and there are plenty of odds available to place bets on. Those who went to Bet365 and took advantage of the odds at the start of the season on teams such as the Packers, Cardinals, Buccaneers, Ravens and Cowboys will still be feeling confident about winning some dollars.
Others who have been backing the Texans, Lions, Giants, Jaguars and Dolphins won’t be so happy. Those who bet in-play on the Jaguars might be celebrating and that’s how exciting betting on the NFL can be. Don’t forget you can also bet on College Football.
Packers-Chiefs the marquee game
November sees the Packers play on four occasions. They start off on the 7th with a trip to the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas haven’t been setting the world alight this season and at the time of writing this article are tied with the Broncos at the bottom of the AFC West.
Two of the Chiefs’ losses were by one point to the Ravens and six to the Chargers, so they could easily be 6-2. Bet365 still has them at just 7/1 to win the Super Bowl with the Packers at 9/1. Two out of three Kansas home games have been lost this season. The Chiefs are now 2-2 at home after beating the Giants.
November continues with a home game against Seattle Seahawks on the 14th. They’re currently bottom of the NFC West and are one of those teams who need to improve quickly if they want a wild card place. With only three wins from their first eight games, they are likely to continue to struggle, so that’s good news for the Packers.
A trip to the Minnesota Vikings is up next on November 21. After slumping to 1-3, they made it back to 3-3 before laying an egg against the Cowboys Sunday night. They have the Ravens and Chargers before facing the Packers so could very well out of it by then.
A hopefully successful November ends with a home game against another team who have made a strong start to the new season. The LA Rams have the same 7-1 record as the Packers and will be coming to Lambeau with revenge on their minds. A great game to end the month.
