Packers expected to roll in LA this weekend 

<div><p>Each week of the NFL season the Odds Market NFL team will release a Pigskin Parlay article. They may differ from week to week. One week it could be a Teaser, the next week it could be a spread or money line parlay. The goal, to finish the season with more units than we started with.</p><p>Through 8 weeks of the 2019 NFL season and we are in the black gentlemen. The current record sits a 3-4 on the season for (+.82u) of profit. This week we try to do it all over again with a couple games for Week 9. We are going to stick with 2 team accumulator bets because its hard enough to hit 2 teams never mind 3 or 4. Enough small talk, let’s get it.</p><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Week 8: 2 TEAM MONEY LINE ACCUMULATOR </strong></h2><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src="https://img.evbuc.com/https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F78504877%2F77071585845%2F1%2Foriginal.20191028-195338?w=1000&amp;auto=compress&amp;rect=0%2C10%2C634%2C317&amp;s=b511b20150332085695e16b9ab980520" style="width:700px;height:350px" /></strong><br /><b>Chicago Bears vs Philadelphia Eagles</b></h2><p>The Chicago Bears are a bad football team. They made a monumental mistake drafting Mitchell Trubisky a couple years ago. It is going to set the franchise back a half decade at a minimum. Can you tell how much I dislike this quarterback? Last weekend the Chicago Bears had every chance to beat the LA Chargers last weekend, but bad teams don’t win coin flip games in the 4<sup>th</sup> quarter. Especially bad teams that get consistent inconsistency from their starting quarterback.</p><p>Last season the Chicago Bears got lucky. They had an all-world defense, and they did everything they could to keep the ball out of Trubisky’s hands. They were a replica of the 2009 and 2010 New York Jets. When the Jets had an incredible defense and a rookie quarterback in Mark Sanchez, they made back to back AFC Championship appearances. Unfortunately for Jets fans, they came crashing back down to earth when they opened the playbook up for Sanchez, and he turned into the pumpkin he was at the stroke of midnight. That is precisely what is happening this season for the Chicago Bears. In an earlier preseason article on OddsMarket we took the Chicago Bears season win total under 9.5 wins, and this was the reason.</p><p>The Philadelphia Eagles picked up a huge win last weekend against a very stout Buffalo Bills defense. The conditions were brutal with 20 mph winds, but their offense looked great against what was a top 10 defense for the Bills. This weekend they will host another phenomenal defense, and another abysmal offense. The huge weakness of this Philadelphia Eagles team is the secondary. They have been torched week after week because the defensive front seven that had been so dominant the last few seasons has looked average this year. That is why we see the cracks in the secondary, because opposing quarterbacks have to much time. That will NOT be an issue this week. The Bears and Trubisky couldn’t take advantage of a high school secondary at this point. Aside from that Eagles secondary they really are a solid team. I think they beat this Bears team precisely because of that reason. The Eagles should be able to move the ball on this Chicago defense that is good, but not as dominant last season. Combine that with the Bears not being able to throw on this Eagles secondary, and it all shades one way for me in this game. Give me the Eagles, book it!</p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="NFL Betting Odds"><strong><em>Leg One – Philadelphia Eagles at 5/11 (1.45) with Bet365</em></strong></a></p><h2 style="text-align:center"><img alt src="https://static.clubs.nfl.com/image/private/t_editorial_landscape_8_desktop_mobile/f_png/chargers/geg9k5ntaclqslpw0zns.png" style="width:700px;height:394px" /><br /><b>Green Bay Packers vs Los Angeles Chargers</b></h2><p>I haven’t exactly believed in the Green Bay Packers thus far this season, but maybe it’s time to hop on the train. Gone are the days of former head coach Mike McCarthy, and it appears he took his dreadful team with him. It was time for a change, the front office made the right move in Wisconsin. The tension between quarterback Aaron Rodgers and McCarthy was so bad, it looked like Rodgers didn’t even care about the games. As if he was tanking to get the coach out of dodge. In came the Packers new head coach Matt LaFleur, and it instantly reinvigorated his MVP quarterback and the rest of this Packers offense.</p><p>So here the Packers sit, (7-1) to start the season, as they travel to LA to take on a Chargers team that literally has zero homefield advantage. I would tell you the Packers are undefeated on the road this season, but that doesn’t matter in this game. There will be more Packers fan in the stadium this week than Chargers Fans. The Los Angeles Chargers were destroyed by the injury bug for the first half of this season. It almost became comical at one point. At the worst of it I believe they had 8 starters on the shelf. They finally have their tight end back in Hunter Henry, and their best offensive lineman in Russel Okung. Nevertheless, they are still missing key pieces in the secondary. The loss of Derwin James will hurt on Sunday. Aaron Rodgers is capable of going over the top of that defense multiple times on Sunday, and they should balance it out with a steady dose of Jones on the ground.</p><p>Phillip Rivers is always dangerous to put up points in a football game. I believe his best receiver Keenan Allen is questionable for Sunday, but even if he plays, the Chargers might find it harder to move the ball through the air then they thought. The most improved unit on the Green Bay Packers this season has unquestionably been the secondary. They were an absolute joke last season and they have really figured out their deficiencies and fixed them this season. That should be they key on Sunday. I think the Packers continue to roll in LA this weekend. We don’t need them to cover, we just need them to win the game. Give me the Packers, Book It!</p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=dcba5f2b-1dd5-4c29-82c4-99531abcc5db&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="NFL Betting Odds"><strong><em>Leg Two – Green Bay Packers at 20/37 (1.54)</em></strong><strong><em> with Matchbook</em></strong></a></p><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Pigskin Parlay Wrap Up</strong></h2><p align="center"><strong>NFL Week 8: 2 TEAM ACCUMULATOR</strong><br /><strong><em>LEG ONE – Philadelphia Eagles money line at (1.45)</em></strong><br /><strong><em>LEG TWO – Green Bay Packers money line at (1.54)</em></strong><br /><strong><em>TOTAL STAKE – (1.00 unit) TO WIN (2.26)</em></strong><br /><strong><em>SEASON RECORD (3-4)</em></strong><br /><strong><em>PARLAY BANK – (10 Units to start.)</em></strong><br /><strong><em>TOTAL PROFIT/LOSS – (+.83u)</em></strong><br /><strong><em>CURRENT BANK – (10.83 UNITS)</em></strong></p></div>
