The Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers open Week 4 on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at Lambeau Field.
The Philadelphia Eagles hope to snap a two-game losing streak but find themselves in a tough position to do when they meet the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. The Eagles fell to 1-2 after losing to the Detroit Lions 24-27 in week 3. The Eagles made a strong comeback against the Lions but fell short after they fell to capitalize on a blocked field goal attempt. Nelson Agholor had two touchdowns but had a costly fumble. The Eagles have plenty of talent but this early in the season, they find themselves stricken with injuries. DeSean Jackson is out with an abdominal strain while Alshon Jeffrey has a quad injury. Carson Wentz threw for 19-36 for 259 yards while also rushing for 33 yards on four carries. However, Wentz’s fourth down run late in the game fell short and gave Detroit back the possession.
The Green Bay Packers improved to 3-0 on the season after they defeated the Denver Broncos 27-16 on Sunday. Aaron Rodgers threw for 235 yards and a touchdown while Aaron Jones rushed for a career-high two scores as Green Bay remained unbeaten after week 3. But more than the offense, it was Green Bay’s new-look defense that continued to impress on the young season. Za’Darius Smith finished the game with two sacks while fellow newcomer Preston Smith had three sacks. Cornerback Jaire Alexander opened the third quarter by recording his first career forced fumble and fumble recovery. Rashan Gary recorded his first career sack while safety Darnell Savage had his first career interception as well. The Packers head to Lambeau field as the NFL betting favorites to beat the Eagles on Thursday.
The Eagles are 6-4 SU in their last 10 games played and Philadelphia is 5-5 SU in their last 10 road games played. The Packers are 5-5 SU in their last 10 games played and are 7-2-1 SU in their last 10 games played at home. Head to head, Green Bay has won five out of the last six meetings against Philadelphia.
The Packers are 7-0 SU in their last seven week 4 games while the Eagles are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games played in week 4. The Packers are on a roll early in the season and Aaron Rodgers has looked good so far. On the other hand, Carson Wentz has also looked in good shape but the Eagles are playing this one short-handed with key offensive players Jackson and Jeffries among the walking wounded. I think the Eagles are in a tough spot here, trying to snap out of a two-game losing streak at Lambeau Field which has always been a tough place to win. I’m picking the Green Bay Packers to beat the Philadelphia Eagles on 9/26/19. Prediction: Green Bay Packers

The Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last six Thursday games but are 0-5 ATS in their last five September games. The Packers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the NFC East Division and 5-1 ATS in their last six September games played. The Packers are 2-1 ATS in their last three meetings and have outscored the Eagles by 10 points per game during that period. The Packers’ defense has been outstanding to start the season. Philadelphia is missing key players, especially on offense. With Carson Wentz’s options limited and Aaron Rodgers clicking for Green Bay, I expect the Packers to win by at least a touchdown. Prediction: Packers -3
The under is 5-4-1 in the Eagles’ last 10 games played and the over is 6-3-1 in Philadelphia’s last 10 games played on the road. The total has gone under in six out of the last 10 games played by the Packers and the under is 4-2 in Green Bay’s last six games played at home. Head to head, the under is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between these two teams. The under is also 4-1 in the last five games between these two teams in Green Bay.
O 48 -110
U 48 -110
Odds were taken from Betonline as of 9/23/19
These teams have combined to score 44 points per game in their last 10 meetings and 51 points per game in their last three meetings. However, given how Green Bay’s new-look defense has impressed and that the Eagles are missing key players in this contest, I think the Eagles are going to have problems putting points on the scoreboard. I think these two teams will come up short here. Prediction: Under 48
