Tips for Betting on Green Bay Packers

A season that started with Super Bowl aspirations and a potential third MVP trophy for Aaron Rodgers ended in huge disappointment with the Packers finishing with a 6-9-1 record while Rodgers played on one leg for nearly the entire season.

After suffering a knee injury during the first week of the season, Rodgers struggled for the rest of the season. He only completed 25 TD passes on the year, his lowest total in any season where he played in all 16 games. After a disappointing season, the Packers fired longtime Head Coach Mike McCarthy and brought in former Rams OC Matt LaFleur. 

While the Packer offense never got into full gear, the defense struggled most of the season as well and finished 22nd in points per game and 18th in yards per game. The Packers waived goodbye to LB Clay Matthews in the offseason but are hoping their 12th overall pick DE Rashan Gary out of Michigan can help offset the loss.

The Packers were a tough team to bet on last season, in large part due to the constant health questions surrounding franchise QB Aaron Rodgers. After their bye in week seven, the Packers only won three games and ended the year with one road win, which came all the way in week 16.

These are the most important numbers to look at if you plan on betting the Packers in 2019:

  • The Packers finished towards the bottom of the league vs. the spread last season, going 6-9-1, finishing the year with a 40.0 cover percentage.
  • The Packers were middle of the pack on point total results last season as they split that category down the middle with an 8-8-0 record.
  • The Packers finished third in the NFL in sacks with 53. The defense will get another year under DC Mike Pettine who is expected to get more out of a unit that struggled to keep the ball out of the endzone last year.

In regards to legal sports betting in the Packers’ home state of Wisconsin, it’s a wait-and-see situation as state lawmakers observe the legalization process that’s already happening in neighboring states.

  • At the moment, no sports betting bills have passed in Wisconsin but there’s definitely a surge in legal activity in other midwestern states to legalize sports gambling.
  • If the legalization process goes smoothly and begins generating significant tax revenue in nearby states, experts predict Wisconsin will pass a sports betting bill in 2020.
