2011 Super Bowl Odds: Green Bay Packers

Product Information

The Green Bay Packers have the quarterback and defense to potentially be a good bargain at +1000 in 2011 Superbowl odds at online sportsbooks. The Packers vs Eagles game will open the playoffs for Green Bay in the wild card round on Sunday. The Packers finished with a record of 10-6 straight up and 9-7 against the spread in NFL odds with 10 of their games going UNDER the total. The Packers won their final two games of the season to squeeze into a wild card spot in the NFC as they finished 2nd to the Chicago Bears in the NFC North and will be considered longshots in 2011 Superbowl XLV predictions to make the championship game.

The Packers have shown outstanding progress and improvement on defense the past 2 seasons with coordinator Dom Capers and they finished 5th overall for total defense in the NFL this season while ranking an even better 2nd for points allowed. Something to be weary of heading into Superbowl odds though is how the offense is very dependent upon QB Aaron Rodgers as the early season injury to Ryan Grant permanently damaged the offense as a suitable replacement was never found. Rodgers finished with a 101.2 QB rating and a 65% completion rate with 3,922 yards and a 28/11TD/INT ratio.

Greg Jennings was Rodgers favorite target has he finished with 76 catches good for 1,265 yards and a 16.6 YPC average with 12 TD’s. Heading into 2011 Superbowl predictions as longshots, the Packers were 4-4 against the spread on the road this season while going UNDER the total in 7 of 8 road games. The key for Green Bay’s success will be that defense and to have Rodgers avoid interceptions and costly mistakes. While the lack of a ground game is a problem a bigger potential disaster area in 2011 Superbowl odds is the special teams which have been a chronic source of frustration for the Packers during coach Mike McCarthy’s tenure since 2006.
