While it may appear that the Green Bay Packers underachieved in a big way a year ago while going just 7-9 to miss out on a playoff berth, the fact of the matter is that the longtime NFC North residents had a very good reason for their mediocrity. They played the vast majority of the season without superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers under center as the perennial Pro Bowler missed nine games because of a broken collarbone.
Now, with the Pack looking to bounce back in a big way and get back into the playoffs in 2018, you could cash in big on their season-long win total futures odds. Whether you’ve got a decent idea of how many games Green Bay will win this coming season or you need some expert assistance with coming to a decisive conclusion, you’re going to increase your chances of nailing your props odds wager on the Packers win total because of the expert betting analysis and predictions that you’re about to get on every one of Green bay’s games this coming season.
Now, let’s get started.
Green Bay Packers 2018 NFL Win/Loss Odds Prediction
Green Bay Packers Win Total Odds – 10
Week 1: Sunday, Sept. 9 vs. Chicago Bears, 8:20 p.m. ET
The Packers are the super easy pick to beat the rebuilding Bears at home in their regular season opener against their longtime NFC North divisional rivals. I like Chicago’s hiring of Matt Nagy, but I believe the Bears will be better later in the season as opposed to early on. Win. 1-0.
Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 16 vs. Minnesota Vikings, 1 p.m. ET
Aaron Rodgers would like nothing better than to hand the division rival Vikings a loss in this contest since it was Minnesota that broke his collarbone and ruined his season a year ago. Unfortunately, I don’t see the Packers getting it because their defense is going to be awful and Kirk Cousins is going to pick itapart! Loss. 1-1.
Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 23 at Washington, 1 pm. ET
The Packers march into the nation’s capitol and drop a turd on the White House lawn (I wish) before handing the Skins a home loss. Win. 2-1.
Week 4: Sunday, Sept. 30 vs. Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m. ET
The Packers will go from Washington to upstate New York where they’ll smack around a Buffalo Bills team that should have never jettisoned former starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Or maybe you think that either unproven veteran A.J. McCarron or equally unproven second-year signal-caller Nathan Peterman is going to outplay Aaron Rodgers. LOL. Win. 3-1.
Week 5: Sunday, Oct. 7 at Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. ET
The Lions won’t be better than the Packers in 2018, but I’m thinking they’ll split their regular season meetings. Loss. 3-2.
Week 6: Monday, Oct. 15 vs. San Francisco 49ers, 7:15 p.m. ET
The 49ers have some high hopes entering 2018 because of the late-season play of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, but Jimmy G is going to learn a thing or two from Aaron R. or is that AR? Oh hell, you know what I mean? Win. 4-2.
Week 7: Bye
Week 8: Sunday, Oct. 28 at Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. ET
Aaron Rodgers is definitely better than fellow alumni Jared Goff, but the Los Angeles Rams are now the clearly better and more complete team! Loss. 4-3.
Week 9: Sunday, Nov. 4 at New England Patriots, 8:20 p.m. ET
Green Bay will suffer back-to-back losses as they travel from one coast to another against a pair of Super Bowl hopefuls that are simply better than they are on both sides of the ball. Loss. 4-4.
Week 10: Sunday, Nov. 11 vs. Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m. ET
The Packers could rest Rodgers and they’d still beat the awful Dolphins in this contest. Hey, does that rhyme…awful Dolphins? Win. 5-4.
Week 11: Thursday, Nov. 15 at Seattle Seahawks, 8:20 p.m. ET
Seattle may not be the same team that was a perennial Super Bowl favorite they have been in recent years now gone by, but Russell Wilson is damned good and Seattle is still difficult to beat at home. Loss. 5-5.
Week 12: Sunday, Nov. 25 at Minnesota Vikings, 8:20 p.m. ET
The Packers haven’t won in Minneapolis since U.S. Bank Stadium opened in 2016 and they aren’t going to win this Week 12 divisional showdown either! Loss. 5-6.
Week 13: Sunday, Dec. 2 vs. Arizona Cardinals, 1 p.m. ET
Aaron Rodgers will be the best quarterback on the field in this contest by far! Win. 6-6.
Week 14: Sunday, Dec. 9 vs. Atlanta Falcons, 1 p.m. ET
The Packers have lost three straight to the Falcons with each loss coming in the ATL. Chalk up another one for Matt Ryan and company! Loss. 6-7.
Week 15: Sunday, Dec. 16 at Chicago, 1 p.m. ET
The Bears will be better in 2018 than they’ve been in a while but Green bay will be completely desperate to keep their faint postseason hopes alive. Win. 7-7
Week 16: Sunday, Dec. 23 at New York Jets, 1 p.m. ET
Nobody knows whether Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater or Sam Darnold will be under center for the Jets in this contest, but really, it won’t matter. Green Bay wins out of sheer desperation. 8-7.
Week 17: Sunday, Dec. 30 vs. Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. ET
The Packers will need he win to keep their postseason hopes alive – and they’ll get it! Win. 9-7. I like the Packers for 9 wins in 2018 and maybe 10 at most. What I don’t see happening is 11 victories and an Over! Play the Under!
