While the Green Bay Packers managed to sign superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a long-term deal just prior to the 2018 season, the heralded franchise clearly failed to surround their franchise leader with the complimentary pieces he needs to compete in the super-competitive NFC and we’re not even talking about the team’s lackluster defense.
Will Rodgers and the Packers offense get back to being among the best in the game? How will Green bay fare under first-year head coach Matt LaFleur…and oh, is anyone going to play defense in 2019? If you’re an NFL fan and betting enthusiast that wants to know just how many games the Packers are going to win so you could possibly cash in on the value-packed NFL Win Total Odds, then you’re in luck!
Thanks to the expert NFL predictions that you’re about to get on each and every game on Carolina’s upcoming 2019 docket, you’re going to have a great idea of just how many games the Panthers will win this coming season.
The Packers had a wildly uneven season a year ago in ranking a solid ninth in passing, but just 22nd in rushing and modest 15th in scoring (23.5 ppg). Green Bay was mediocre at best defensively in finishing 22nd against the run and an identical 22nd in points allowed (25.0 ppg). Aaron Rodgers and company went a modest 5-2-1 at home and they were a complete mess in going 1-7 on the road last season.
To address their offseason needs the Packers drafted Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary with the 12th overall pick while adding Maryland safety Darnell Savage with the 21st pick in the opening round. The Packers also added former Ravens linebacker Za’Darius Smith, former Bears safety Adrian Amos and former Redskins linebacker Preston Smith. Green Bay also has a new head-coach in first-timer Matt LaFleur, previously the offensive coordinator in Tennessee.
Green Bay Packers 2019 NFL Season Win/Loss Total Odds & Prediction
- Green Bay Packers 2019 Win Total Odds: 9.5
- 2018 Wins: 6
Week 1 at Chicago
The Packers split with the Bears last season winning 24-23 at home in Week 1 and losing in Chi-Town 24-17 in Week 15. Green Bay falls again in the Windy City! Loss. 0-1.
Week 2 vs. Minnesota
The Packers tied the Vikings 29-29 at home in Week 2 last season, but they’ll get the win at Lambeau this time around as their new defensive additions get after Kirk Cousins and Aaron Rodgers outplays his far lesser counterpart. Win. 1-1.
Week 3 vs. Denver
This looks like a game that Denver should win but they won’t just because Joe Flacco is borderline awful and Aaron Rodgers is a future Hall of Famer. The Packers win on the road . 2-1.
Week 4 vs. Philadelphia
The Packers might be playing at home, but I think Philadelphia is the better all-around team in this contest and I believe Carson Wentz is due for a huge season in the City of Brotherly Love. Loss. 2-2.
Week 5 at Dallas
The Cowboys will be playing at home and they’ve got the better defense and rushing attack. Green Bay falls again. 2-3.
Week 6 vs. Detroit
I have absolutely no doubt that Green Bay is going to go all out to get some payback for the pair of regular season losses they suffered against the Lions last season that includes their embarrassing 31-0 shutout loss at home in their finale. Rodgers and company get the payback they’re looking for. Win. 3-3.
Week 7 vs. Oakland
This is a game the Packers should – and must – win. Oakland is coming off a pitiful 4-12 campaign and they’ve got a ways to go to get back to respectability. Win. 4-3.
Week 8 at Kansas City
Aaron Rodgers might be great, but these days, a lot of people believe there is no one better than Patrick Mahomes. Kansas City has the edge here in coaching and the Chiefs are playing at Arrowhead Stadium. Green Bay Loses. 4-4.
Week 9 at L.A. Chargers
The Chargers keep coming up short when it matters most, but Philip Rivers and company are coming off a stellar 12-win season and the Bolts are playing at home. Green Bay falls on the west coast. Loss. 4-5.
Week 10 vs. Carolina
Cam newton is a pretty damned good dual-threat quarterback even if he’s not the best passer in the world. Unfortunately, Aaron Rodgers is far better than Newton and that’s why Green Bay will manage to hold it down at home in this one. 5-5.
Week 11 BYE
Week 12 at San Francisco
The Packers got past Frisco 33-30 in a thriller at home in Week 6 last season and I’m going to say they repeat their feat whether Jimmy G is under center for the Niners or not. 6-5.
Week 13 at NY Giants
There’s no reason Green Bay shouldn’t win this game, but they won’t. I’m expecting Saquon Barkley to steal the show in this showdown in the Big Apple in something of a shootout. Loss. 6-6.
Week 14 vs. Washington
You might not know it, but Washington actually won more games than Green bay did a year ago. Still, I’m expecting Aaron Rodgers to be at his late-season best and I’m expecting him to outplay whoever starts under center for Washington. Win. 7-6.
Week 15 vs. Chicago
I like the Packers to get the huge, win here as part of their regular season split with the Bears. 8-6.
Week 16 at Minnesota
Simply put, Minnesota gets the big win at home here as part of a regular season split. Loss. 8-7.
Week 17 at Detroit
With their playoff lives on the line, I’m going to say Green Bay comes up shockingly small in a crushing loss to Matt Stafford and the Lions that leaves them right at 8-8.
While I’ll admit that the Packers could win nine games, I certainly don’t see 10 victories coming for the Packers in 2019. Play the Under.
