The Packers are underdogs this week against the Cardinals.

The Green Bay Packers have won six in a row, setting themselves up for another playoff run.

This week, they meet the only team in the NFC with a better record, the undefeated Arizona Cardinals. It will be played on the road on Thursday Night Football, a real challenge for Matt LaFleur’s team.

Can Green Bay hand Arizona its first defeat of the season?

Packers vs. Cardinals Odds Week 8

According to WynnBET’s latest odds for Week 8, the Packers are four-point underdogs against the Cardinals with the over/under set at 53.0 points. Green Bay is +175 on the money line, Arizona -200.

Despite all of Green Bay’s early-season success, this isn’t surprising. Arizona has been the best team in football through seven weeks and remains undefeated. The Cardinals are playing some great football in every phase of the game and have already defeated the Tennessee Titans, Los Angeles Rams, and Cleveland Browns.

Packers vs. Cardinals Prediction Week 8

The Packers have done enough to win in recent weeks despite being far from their best. They will need to be flawless on Thursday night to take down the undefeated Cardinals.

There’s no doubt both teams are among the best in the NFC. Could Green Bay go into Arizona and pull off the upset? No doubt. But it won’t be easy.

The Packers are dealing with a long list of injuries with many key starters out. Defensive coordinator Joe Barry has tested positive for COVID-19 and likely won’t be there on Thursday night.

Not to mention Green Bay has a short week to travel. The team’s recent record against Arizona isn’t a good one, and unfortunately this could be a long night. Too much is working against the Packers going into this game. I predict their impressive winning run comes to an end against the Cardinals.

Prediction: Cardinals 31-20
