Week 9 NFL picks: Cardinals vs. Packers

Andy Lyons

The Green Bay Packers are overwhelming favorites against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9 of NFL play.

After starting the season 4-0, the Arizona Cardinals have dropped to .500 with a streak in the opposite direction, and that has them as overwhelming underdogs against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

SB Nation's Joel Thorman has the Packers, who have come on strong the past three weeks, cruising to a 35-13 victory. Thorman points out that quarterback Aaron Rodgers has thrown 11 touchdowns to no interceptions over the three-game span, a laughable comparison to the Cardinals' quarterbacks throwing only two touchdowns to four interceptions in Arizona's past three outings.

Eight writers at CBS Sports agree with Thorman that Green Bay is the favorite, and all believe in the Packers winning against the spread. At Yahoo! Sports, three NFL experts and the fans also give the nod to Green Bay.

The only positive in Arizona's favor is coming from the OddsShark.com computer analysis, which doesn't believe the Packers will cover the 11-point spread.
