We finally appeared to have a top-notch matchup for Thursday Night Football, but COVID-19 has unfortunately dampened the Green Bay Packers vs. Arizona Cardinals hype quite a bit.

Green Bay wide receivers Davante Adams and Allen Lazard have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, meaning both are in jeopardy of missing Thursday night’s showdown with undefeated Arizona.

Adams is clearly the most important of the two from a performance standpoint, but Lazard compounds the issue even more for the Packers.

The betting market has taken note as well, with the Cardinals moving from 4-point favorites before the Adams and Lazard news up to -6.5 at the time of writing.

So what does this mean for NFL bettors?

Is there still value with the Cardinals with Adams and Lazard expected to miss Thursday Night Football?

Or is a 2.5-point line move too much and the Packers are now worth some buyback?

Thanks to The Action Network’s NFL PRO Projections, we can quickly answer those questions.
