With plenty of news coming out this week and the NFL odds have been on the move. The trade deadline just concluded and there were some big trades. There were also some interesting decisions and cuts that had to be made as well.

Here are a couple of games with value for Sunday’s game.

Green Bay Packers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Sunday, November 7, 2021 – 04:25 PM EST at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium

There’s so much value in this game if you play it right. The Packers will be without Aaron Rodgers and because of that, the total has shifted under 50 points to 47.5. For a game between the Packers and Chiefs, this can’t be overlooked. Sure, the Chiefs have turned the ball over a ton this year but there’s no arguing how talented that offense can be when in sync.

We’ve been waiting all year for this Chiefs offense to figure it out. Against the Packers' secondary, the Chiefs could have a day. The Packers also haven’t been great against the run, giving the Chiefs the ability to score while running the football or airing it out against a poor secondary. Meanwhile, Jordan Love will get the first start of his career with the Packers.

He’s got a lot of potential and has had a year to learn the Packers system and really learn under Aaron Rodgers. Earlier this season, it was thought that Love was going to be the starter for this team if Rodgers dipped and retired in the first place. The Packers have confidence in Love moving forward and with the Chiefs struggling every which way on the defensive end, it’s going to be exciting watching what Love can do.

He’ll have most of his receivers in there including Davante Adams who has cleared protocol. Having Adams as a target will be very beneficial moving forward for the Packers.

I’d ride the over here after some crazy line movement.

Tennessee Titans vs. Los Angeles Rams

Sunday, November 7, 2021 - 08:20 PM EST at SoFi Stadium

The Rams are going all in this year. They haven’t used a first-round draft pick since selecting former Rams quarterback Jared Goff and don’t plan on using many picks in the near future.

The Rams just traded the Broncos a couple of draft picks for Von Miller and now have a defense of Aaron Donald, Von Miller and Jalen Ramsey to name a few.

Yet, the Rams didn’t need Von Miller. They needed help in the secondary, The Rams' secondary, with Ramsey, hasn’t been that great this season. Meanwhile, the Titans lost Derrick Henry due to a foot injury and he’ll miss plenty of time.

However, the run game should still explode, no matter who is running as the offensive line has been terrific for the Titans this season in run blocking.

Meanwhile, with no Henry, the game plan should be to throw the football more with Julio Jones and AJ Brown. At the end of the day, you’ve got to get your best players involved in each game. The expectation is that the Titans air it out more and help the total go over for our second NFL pick.
