Packers at Texans (Sun, 10/25 - 1pm)

Discussion in 'Green Bay Packers Fan Forum' started by XPack, Oct 19, 2020.

  1. However, they set an opening line before anybody has placed a bet. To my earlier point, they set that line in anticipation of how the betting public will lean, not by some objective assessment of how it will play out. Then they move it as the bets roll in.

    In a sense they do. The book has no interest at all in who wins. The line is the number of points needed to balance the amount of money coming on both teams. Strictly speaking, nobody sets the line; everybody does. It happens as a lot of people bet with their hearts, an unreasonably high confidence in their knowledge of the game, and (probably) blood alcohol levels. Crowd sourced odds, you could say.

    The Packers should win this game.

    However, the Texans have a really talented offense, and Watson is playing really well.

    They are also catching them at the wrong time-- it seems like they may play better/looser with BOB gone.

    On the road, against a good quarterback, nothing is guaranteed. The offense better have its act together.

    Some Texans fans at Football's Future are saying they won't be able to harass Rodgers like Tampa did so they aren't too confident.

    I dont like this press how MLF has YET to lose 2 in a row...It could easily happen, and eventually will.

    I’m sure they won’t. But I could see the game being a shootout.

    Aaron Jones calf injury. Game time decision. Apparently it's mild.

    Downside: Aaron Jones is a really important piece of the offense.

    Upside: It would be helpful to the FO to see a game or two of this offense without him in it.

    I'm sure we'd all like to see more of Mr. Dillon.

    Ridiculous quote from a coach #7,543: MLF says he trusts Dillon to do everything that Jones does. Jones has 93 touches this year, Dillon has 13. Methinks MLF is peddling some bullsh*t.

    Maybe he's trying to show the back up he has confidence and high expectations in him.

    Obviously. I was just pointing out the silliness of listening to coaches.

    Yeah these injuries coming out of left field are concerning.

    David Bakhtiari has been ruled out for tomorrow's game vs. the Texans. He didn't make the trip to Houston.

    Dexter has been brought up. I think this means Aaron doesn't play.

    This could be AJ Dillon's time to shine.

    update: Jones officially out.

    According to Tom Pelissero Jones is still a game-time decision.

    Just for the record, the Packers are currently behind the Bears in the standings.

    Actually if I understand your numbers correctly it seems that home teams benefit from not having crowds in stadiums this season, scoring an additional average of 0.8 points compared to visiting clubs.

    If Jones is out it is GO TIME TO UNLEASH THE BEAST!! Dillon is going to surprise the hell out of all of us I think.
