Bettors witnessed a significant move in the game spread Monday following the news that Packers star wideout Davante Adams could miss the game after being placed on the COVID-19 list. Another blow came Tuesday afternoon when fellow wide receiver Allen Lazard also landed on the COVID-19 list, and he will miss Thursday's game.

After being blown out, 38-3, in the season opener at New Orleans, the Packers have ripped off six consecutive SU and ATS victories. Green Bay—with road wins over San Francisco, Cincinnati and Chicago—will look to extend its SU and ATS road win streak.

The Cardinals, the only remaining undefeated team, are a field goal away from covering the spread in every game. Arizona only failed to reward bettors in its 34-33 home win over Minnesota in Week 2 as 4-point home favorites.

De’Vondre Campbell has been arguably the best linebacker in the league. Adrian Amos has been outstanding at safety, and is a big reason that Green Bay’s defense has allowed the third-fewest completions of 20-plus yards this fall.

NFL Week 7 Thursday Night Football Betting Odds. Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals (-6). Remember how I wrote last week that you can’t pick the Cardinals to lose against a good team just because “it’s time.” Well , here is where the rubber meets the road.

  NFL roundtable: Which teams should pursue deals before deadline? When it comes to the NFL trade deadline, there's often a gulf between what some teams should do and what they are willing to do.The annual cutoff at around midseason provides the last chance for a significant infusion of talent - or opportunity to clear some cap space and load up on draft picks, for those teams selling. But while the deadline has spurred a handful of moves in recent years, many organizations are still content to stand pat.

Week 8 of the NFL season gets underway with Thursday Night Football between the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals . Green Bay comes in at 6-1, while Arizona is the last remaining undefeated team in the league at 7-0. This is, of course, the biggest game on the entire Week 8 schedule. Who will pick up the slack and find the endzone for Green Bay Thursday ? Here are some of our best touchdown scorer bets . First touchdown scorer: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Arizona Cardinals (+650). In most cases I am not a fan of backing the favorite to be the first touchdown scorer.

The Arizona Cardinals (7-0) will look to stay undefeated when the Green Bay Packers (6-1) come into town on Thursday Night Football . The Cardinals extended their win streak after blowing out the Houston Texans, 31-5. The Packers dropped their season-opener to the New Orleans Saints, but The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up. Now, the model has simulated Packers vs . Cardinals

On a short week, the Packers will be rolling out a wideout group consisting of Randall Cobb, Equanimeous St. Brown and Amari Rodgers against an Arizona defense allowing the third-fewest passing yards per game (201.0).

Losing Lazard, who had become more involved in the offense in recent weeks with consecutive games with a receiving touchdown, is another blow to the Green Bay aerial attack. It is still unknown if Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) will be activated off injured reserve and play on the short week.

The Packers' offense will likely lean on the talents of star running back Aaron Jones. The fourth-year back leads the club in rushing yards (404) and total touchdowns (6). Jones is second on the team behind Adams in targets (28), receptions (26) and receiving yards (186) and leads the Packers in receiving touchdowns (4).

Expect Jones, who has a high of 73% offensive snap percentage, to top that amount in Week 9 with a season-high in volume.

On the other side of the ball, the Cardinals possess solid wideout production from DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green, Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore.

Aaron Rodgers reveals his long-teased Halloween costume

  Aaron Rodgers reveals his long-teased Halloween costume After weeks of speculation as to what the long hair was all about, Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers revealed his Halloween costume on Saturday night.After weeks of speculation as to what the long hair was all about, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers revealed his Halloween costume on Saturday night with an Instagram post that shows him as Keanu Reeves' professional hitman character in the "John Wick" film franchise.

Kyler Murray, who ranks fifth in passing yards (2,002), has completed 71.4 percent of his passes for 17 passing touchdowns, as well as four rushing scores. The star signal caller has passed for three-plus passing touchdowns in four of seven games.

Murray is facing a Packers defense that has surrendered multiple passing touchdowns to Jameis Winston (5), Jared Goff (2), Jimmy Garappolo (2) and Joe Burrow (2).

Combine these trends and we find a “Frankie’s Red Hot” involving backing Murray’s over 2.5 passing touchdowns player proposition offering at attractive odds of +170.

Oddsmakers project newly acquired tight end Zach Ertz will only have a moderate impact in his second game with the club, as SI Sportsbook has his receiving yard betting market set at 28.5. My projections have Ertz, who has gone over this posted number in four of seven games, surpassing his betting proposition number Thursday.

The veteran made an immediate connection in his first game with Murray last week, tallying 66 receiving yards and a touchdown. Green Bay has already allowed opposing tight ends Ricky Seals-Jones (51), Cole Kmet (49), T.J. Hockenson (66) and George Kittle (92) to all easily surpass this posted total.

Backing Ertz over 28.5 receiving yards Thursday night is a solid investment.

32 things we learned from Week 8 of 2021 NFL season: Frights abound

  32 things we learned from Week 8 of 2021 NFL season: Frights abound As the NFL approaches the midpoint of the regular season, Halloween week featured plenty of ghastly sights for several teams.1. With the Arizona Cardinals suffering their first loss of the season Thursday – the final team to taste defeat – to the scorching (if short-handed) Green Bay Packers, the 2021 campaign looks as wide open as ever. The NFC now has three 7-1 teams (Cards, Pack, Los Angeles Rams) with the reigning champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers lurking at 6-2 despite Sunday's surprising loss to the New Orleans Saints and the resilient Dallas Cowboys checking in at 6-1 after their Sunday night triumph at Minnesota without injured QB Dak Prescott.

Another player proposition market bettors should look to target is Kirk's reception total of 3.5, which is simply too low. Kirk, who has 18 receptions in the last three games, has surpassed this projected total in six of seven games.

The fourth-year wideout, who has been on the field for 78.5% snap of the offensive plays over the past two weeks, has capitalized on his increased volume by hauling in touchdown passes in consecutive games. Eclipsing the reception total of 3.5 at a 71% clip over his last seven games makes this a market all bettors should exploit.

Frankie's Thursday Night Football Betting Advice

This game, from a side perspective, is simply too tough to call.

The likely absence of Adams and Lazard has affected the spread, despite the fact that the Packers are 6-0 without Adams over the last two seasons. Instead, pro money is backing that a short-handed Packers offense will not be able to break its recent trend of going under the posted game total by oddsmakers.

The play on Thursday night is to back the trend that Green Bay will be involved in a fifth straight game that consists of less scoring than what sportsbooks are projecting.

BET: Under 51 (-115)

PROP BETS:

Kyler Murray, QB, Cardinals: Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns (+170)

Zach Ertz, TE Cardinals: Over 28.5 Receiving Yards

Christian Kirk, WR Cardinals: Over 3.5 Receptions

Trends:

  • The Under is 4-0 in Green Bay’s last four games this season; 5-2 overall
  • The Cardinals are 5-0 ATS in their last five games
