The Green Bay Packers might be slight favorites heading into Monday night's game against the Seattle Seahawks, but they're not a unanimous pick, according to several NFL experts.

The Packers (1-1) dropped their season-opener against the San Francisco 49ers, but bounced back in Week 2 with a 20-13 win over their longtime rival Chicago Bears. The Seahawks (1-1) are coming off an impressive 27-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

Nine of ESPN's stable of 12 NFL experts have picked the Packers to win Monday night's matchup, but Chris Mortensen, Keyshawn Johnson and Eric Allen are picking the Seahawks.

Seven of CBS Sports' nine NFL experts chose the Packers to pick up the win, while Will Brinson and Dave Richard have picked the Seahawks in a mild upset.

Yahoo's Jason Cole and Les Carpenter like the Packers in Week 3, while Mike Silver has picked the Seahawks.

OddsShark.com currently has the Packers as 3.5-point favorites.

Monday night's game will begin at 5:30 p.m. PT and be televised on ESPN.
