by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Betway.com and the home teams in CAPs.
SEATTLE -2.5 over Green Bay
Could that have been the loss that seals the fate of Packers coach Mike McCarthy? Green Bay would be stupid to stick with him if they miss the playoffs and that’s looking even more likely now.
