The Sunday Night Football game of the week is between two NFC teams that are in different places right now versus preseason expectations. The Packers were considered the favorites in the NFC North, but sit at 4-7 and trail the Vikings by five games in the division.
The Eagles on the other hand were not considered the favorites in the NFC East. Now their 9-1 record sits atop the league. They do not have comfort in the division however, as they lead the Cowboys by just a game and a half.
The Eagles are set as 6.5 home favorites, and the line makes sense. While the Eagles have the superior record, they have not played their best in recent weeks. They have looked quite average on both sides of the ball, and do not have the same electricity they had earlier in the season.

Christian Watson Player Props
We had success with our Christian Watson player props just a week ago, and it is important to understand the full thought process as we go back to that well. Here is what we said last week:
Of course both the yardage and touchdown scoring props came to fruition, despite a lower amount of volume than expected. With Doubs once again out for SNF, Watson is set to have another significant game, despite a tougher matchup.
This week his yardage prop is set at just 40.5 yards, an actual improvement from last week. His odds to score a touchdown remain at +210, despite having five of those in the last two games. This remains a role to not overthink and continue to attack.
Betting Picks: Christian Watson Over 40.5 Receiving Yards and To Score A Touchdown +210
