The Packers odds are seeing similar action on the moneyline with 93% of total bets and 89% of the money. The moneyline could be considered easy money as the Packers have won three straight games.

Since first opening, there has been tons of action going on with this matchup as the Cardinals NFL odds originally opened up at 4.5 points in their favor and shifted down to 1.5 points on the spread.

Even with the Colts going in as slight underdogs, they are still seeing the most action being that they are fully healthy. They are taking in 67% of bets on the spread and 85% of bets on the moneyline.
