It was originally 9. It might go down to 5. I wouldn't bet on this game to save my life.

I was thinking 5 as well, but I bet it closes at 6.5. Even though we're playing better, the Pack are the 15-1 defending champs, with the likely MVP QB, who score a boatload of points and are playing at home.

9 was crazy. This isn't the Falcons they're playing. The Giants have, in theory at least, the type of D that can do damage to their O. The Falcs never could have matched that.

I don't think it gets down to 5. Take out 3 pts that any home team gets and then give Green Bay another 3.5 pts just b/c they've beat the Giants and are considered the best team in the NFC or even the NFL. I think 6.5 or 7 is fair.

I also wonder if geography plays a part here. I would guess that more money from NY, CT & NJ is coming in vs. money from the Midwest just do to the east coast being more densely populated.

you think a lot of giants fans are betting on this game? i think giants fans know better than anyone that they are inconsistent and a scary bet.

Not necessarily Giants fans betting but at 9 id take that all day it will be interesting to see where it ends up. On a side note I laid 20 bucks on the giants to win it all this year back in July. I was getting 15-1 so I figured why the heck not. Let's go Big Blue I need a bottle of Blue Label!!!!!

Most of the $$ coming in from the midwest, outside of Wisconsin of course, is probably being put on the Giants. Much of the midwest outside of Wisconsin consists of Bears and Vikings fans. They will be watching the game on Sunday, crying in their beers, praying to whichever God they believe in for New York to win. Bears fans especially, having been denied a spot in the tournament after losing last years NFC Championship game to these Packers. If every Chicago resident bet $1 on this game, the money line would be even by Friday.

<h4 class="titleup">Why do sportsbooks change their lines?</h4>



A line moves because the book is trying to balance out the money
being laid on either side. If the public favors one team too much, the
line moves to attract support to the other team.</p>



If you see a line move significantly, the public may be responding to
a situation you are not aware of, like a suspension. Or it might simply
be one team is overly popular.</p>

He is practicing so I assume he plays without a setback
