Monday Night Football Betting

 

 

Monday Night football kicks off today after much anticipation from its’ fans. NFL sports betting aficionados will start the week with a great game to look forward to: The main course will consist of Green Bay Packers against the Vikings and for desert we’ll have Raiders vs. Broncos. What will it be like for the Packers during this first Monday Night Football game without Favre? We’re all about to find out tonight. The Packers are scheduled for 3 games on the Monday Night Football spot for this 2008-2009 NFL football season.

Although in my personal opinion Monday Night Football will never be the same without John Madden and Al Michaels, I still can’t wait for this years Monday Night football opening game in  prime-time network television.. Tonight Oakland should be ready to step it up for their eternal rivals: the Denver Broncos. The Green Bay Packers on the other hand count fully on quarterback Aaron Rodgers –their substitute for good ole’ Favre– but I’m not sold on Rodgers just yet. Ok I’ll admit he did alright on the preseason but c’mon this guy has only done 1 touchdown in his entire NFL professional career. All I know is he has got some big shoes to fill and the pressure is on among both NFC North teams. The defense will be in charge of making sure the Packers survive this one victoriously however, we have to think of other factors like the weather –chances of rain tonight-  the Minnesota Vikings running game and even the tampering charges against them may play a role in tonight’s’ opening match up.

Now I did say there were two games this Monday Night Football correct? Well here’s what I think of the 2nd game for the night: Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos:

This has always been one of the most interesting rivalries in the NFL. Both AFC West teams have their strengths well defined: The Raiders will rely heavily on their defense and we’ll get to see the debut of rookie Darren McFadden. The Denver Broncos will need to show a revitalized, more solid offense to put on a decent fight. Overall both teams have a history of playing each other tough. This game (I’m crossing fingers) won’t be any different.

For those looking for free Monday Night Football picks I’m going to say that for the first Monday Night Football game this season the Packers won’t be celebrating much as the Vikings are going to leave the field as winners. On the Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos I’m going to go with the Broncos.

What are your picks on both games?
