Green Bay Packers will host Washington Football Team in the NFL 2021 season, Week 7, on Sunday afternoon. The hosts enjoy an excellent streak, and they want to keep up where they left off. The away side has been struggling with its form lately, and they will search for a surprise in Wisconsin.
Green Bay returns home after two games on the road, which they won both. The home side celebrated five times in a row, and their confidence is very high. On the other hand, the visitors head to this game after two straight defeats. They will look forward to bouncing back with a win, but a very challenging task is ahead of them.
Green Bay Packers – Will they continue the winning streak?
It seems a tough defeat against the Saints in the season opener was just a bad day in the office for the Packers. They entered a winning streak that lasts for five matches, and the hosts don’t intend to stop there. Green Bay beat the Bengals and the Bears on the road and wants to continue the run in front of the home crowd. They sit at the top of the NFC North, and the Packers don’t want that position to slip away from their hands at the end of the regular season.
The Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 195 yards with two scores in the latest match, where Green Bay gained 323 yards. Rodgers has passed for 1,436 yards with 12 TDs and three interceptions, while Aaron Jones has rushed for 385 with a pair of touchdowns. Davante Adams leads the receiving corps with 668 yards and two scores. On the other hand, Kenny Clark logged three quarterback sacks, while De’Vondre Campbell had 55 tackles this season.
Expected Line-Up (Offense): Aaron Jones, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan, Yosh Nijman, Jon Runyan, Lucas Patrick, Royce Newman, Billy Turner
Expected Line-Up (Defense): Dean Lowry, Kenny Clark, Kingsley Keke, LaDarius Hamilton, De’Vondre Campbell, Jaylon Smith, Rashan Gary, Eric Stokes, Adrian Amos, Henry Black, Isaac Yiadom
Quarter Back: Aaron Rodgers
Kicker: Mason Crosby

Washington Football Team – Can they surprise the rivals?
The Team cannot be satisfied with its campaign so far, as the visitors head to this game with a 2-4 record. Washington lost its previous two matches, as the Saints and the Chiefs were better at FedEx Field. Another tough task is ahead of them, and the away side needs to put a much better display to get something against Green Bay. Washington is third in the NFC East, and they’ll unlikely secure the playoffs spot at the end of the regular season.
The Team needs to do much better in the offense since they gained only 276 total yards against the Cheifs. Taylor Heincke passed for 186 yards with a TD and an interception. Washington QB has thrown for 1,309 yards this season, with nine scores and six interceptions. The leading rusher is Antonio Gibson, with 357 yards and three scores, while Terry McLaurin gained 428 yards and three TDs from the receiving corps. On the other hand, the Team gave up 499 yards in the latest match. Cole Holcomb is the leading defender with 58 tackles, while Jonathan Allen and Montez Sweat logged three sacks each.
Expected Line-Up (Offense): J.D. McKissic, Terry McLaurin, Adam Humphries, DeAndre Carter, Ricky Seals-Jones, Charles Leno Jr., Ereck Flowers, Chase Roullier, Wes Schweitzer, Saahdiq Charles
Expected Line-Up (Defense): Chase Young, Daron Payne, Jonathan Allen, Montez Sweat, Cole Holcomb, Jamin Davis, Khaleke Hudson, Kendall Fuller, Landon Collins, Kamren Curl, William Jackson III
Quarter Back: Taylor Heinicke
Kicker: Dustin Hopkins
Expert Pick #1 – Green Bay Packers -9.5 @-110
The Packers have been excellent lately, and I expect them to keep their run going. They saw off their previous opponents at the home field with 10+ points, and that trend might continue in this match as well. I’ll take Green Bay to cover the number as my first pick.
Expert Pick #2 – Over 49.5 @-110
Both sides have been involved in efficient matches lately, and the Over cashed four times on the previous five occasions for each of these two teams. The margin doesn’t seem too high for me, and my second bet for this match will be the Over.
Expert Pick #3 – The Packers to win by 13-18 @+425
I’m going with longer odds for my third pick and taking the Packers to win by 13-18 points. The hosts should celebrate a confident victory, and I expect them to deliver it. Washington has a talented defense, but Green Bay should win this comfortably.
