Your typical Packer fan might be as constant as a Sheboygan drunk late Saturday night, but the bettors have been amazingly stubborn about taking the Packers down off of whatever pedestal they’ve put them on.
Remember that after being favored in Denver and getting smashed, the Packers were still favored to beat the undefeated Carolina Panthers on the road. Even while in a four out of five game tailspin, the Packers have been favored to win every game except for being small road dogs at Minnesota. Even after complete opposite performances on Thanksgiving, the Packers were still favored to beat the Lions.
That faith in the Packers is also reflected in their Super Bowl odds. No, they aren’t the favorites to go to or win the Super Bowl like they were in the preseason, but they are still within the top five faves in most sportsbooks with their odds between 10-1 and 12-1 to win it all.
Unsurprisingly, the top favorites to win it all now are the New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals. The Denver Broncos are also ahead of the Packers in most places, with the Cincinnati Bengals being either tied with or immediately above or below the Packers on the betting totem pole.
The Minnesota Vikings’ complete failure against the Seattle Seahawks today will likely boost the Packers’ odds of winning the division once again. If you still had the heart for betting on the Packers, that is probably the way to go.
