immediately after NFL Draft It’s done, the sportsbooks posted the win totals for the 2023 season, and when I scanned the numbers, a surprisingly low number hanging on an NFC North team immediately caught my eye.
the green bay packers, The longtime NFC North Kings, had about the same win total as the Chicago Bearswhich is lowest in the division at 7.5.
That jumped out to me.
Let’s dive into my thoughts on how to bet on Green Bay’s win total this season.
On the one hand, the quarterback’s departure Aaron Rodgers It definitely stings, but he played poorly in 2022 compared to his previous five years. Of course, they have Jordan love Waiting in the wings, a first-round pick they traded in 2020. Most believe Love’s knowledge of Matt LaFleuer’s offense would make this a fairly smooth transition. And the rest of Green Bay’s roster is strong, so the Packers should still be competitive in the NFC, right?
I don’t see it, and I think you can prove that a win under 7.5 is the only way to bet on the Packers this coming season.
For starters, two teams in the division have improved significantly this offseason, with Chicago spending heavily in free agency and also trading the first pick from the draft to secure a wide receiver. DJ Moore. QB Justin Fields Sophomore year with OC Luke Getsy should get better, and in recent years we’ve seen a direct correlation of which teams spend the most money in free agency (New England Patriots in 2021 Jacksonville Jaguars in 2022) and bump into the wins. The Bears may not have spent all their money wisely (linebacker? really?), but they sure will get better.
forecast for Detroit Lions High — stop me if you’ve heard this before — after being swept by the Packers in 2022 and missing the playoffs despite nine wins. The league agrees; The Lions opened the season against Kansas City Chiefs Thursday Football. the Minnesota Vikings They won’t win 13 games again, but they’ll be in a 9-10 win zone.
Which brings us back to Green Bay. The schedule breaks positively for them in one way. They open against bears and hawk, both are on the road, and should be favored in both matches. In fact, the Packers don’t face a playoff team in 2022 until Week 8 (Minnesota). However, the schedule is not without obstacles. The Packers only play two games at Lambeau in the first 50 days of the NFL season. Fortunately, the road games aren’t as extreme as they’re traveling the second fewest miles of any team this season. the Cincinnati Bengals Travel less.
Perhaps new QB Jordan Love will start the season with the pair winning and building confidence.
Because the season will really come down to Love, who has started one game so far in his career. And some of the reports coming out of Lambeau are cause for concern. long processing David Bakhtiari He said it looked like a “rebuild”. He’s also seen Love in Practical for three seasons.
Giants vs. Eagles on Christmas Day 49ers vs. Eagles announced in Week 13 pre-NFL schedule release
Kevin Burkhardt and Erin Andrews have announced two big games for FOX NFL this season including the New York Giants against the Philadelphia Eagles on Christmas Day and the San Francisco 49ers against the Eagles in Week 13.
A report from ESPN this week claimed that the Packers are “preaching patience” for the Lovers, saying it will take a while before he can get down the field and “instantly brightening this up.” time? He has been with this training device for three years!
Before dismissing this as nothing, look at Green Bay’s actions. They did not option Love for a fifth year which means he has a guaranteed $20.27 million. Instead, they gave him a one-year extension that would only pay him $13.5 million, though incentives could bring that up to $22.5 million. So even packers hedge their bets.
With all of this in mind, I’d pick the under 7.5 wins for Green Bay.
He chooses: Packages less than 7.5 win
