4* Free Week 8 NFL Betting Prediction: Arizona -6
The Green Bay Packers seemingly have everything going against them in this game. Traveling across the country on short rest is never a good recipe to pick up a win. Not only that, Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to have his top wideout Davante Adams. Among NFL QB-WR duos, Rodgers and Adams have an unparalleled connection. So far, the Packers quarterback has yet to feature another receiver on the team.
Throughout the tenure of Matt Lafleur, Green Bay has rarely lost. However, when they do lose, it is normal in blowout fashion. Everything about this game points to the Cardinals winning big.
