If you’re new to betting, the Packers’ +3000 Super Bowl odds mean a $100 bet would net $3,000 if they won. [Convert odds using our betting odds calculator.]
After posting an impressive 13-3 record in the regular season, the Packers’ 2019 campaign ended with a loss to the 49ers in the NFC title game. How will they fare in 2020? Sean Koerner previews the Packers’ 2020 win total below.
Packers Win Total
Sean Koerner, the Director of Predictive Analytics at Action, breaks down how he’s betting the Packers’ win total.
Most of the Packers’ offseason buzz has been about their first-round selection of Jordan Love. The decision was very peculiar given that Aaron Rodgers seems to have at least a few more years left in the tank, so I would expect Love’s addition to motivate Rodgers quite a bit this season.
The Packers made another peculiar decision to not invest more into adding passing weapons for Rodgers: Their biggest free-agency signing was Devin Funchess, who opted out, and their TE depth chart is unproven.
The Packers overachieved in 2019. Their Pythagorean expected record indicates they played more like a 10-6 team, not a 13-3 team, a lot of which can likely be attributed to their 6-1 record in one-score games.
Now the arrow is pointing down for the Packers in 2020. I bet the under on 9 wins here, which is no longer available.
