Aaron Rodgers Positive Test Drops Packers Odds

  • The Kansas City Chiefs now have -105 odds to cover 7.5 points against the Green Bay Packers.
  • The Packers were found at +0.5 or at a pick ‘em prior to Aaron Rodgers being ruled OUT.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Jordan Love will make his first career start as Aaron Rodgers is OUT due to a positive COVID-19 test.

How The Line Has Moved

Prior to the Kansas City Chiefs Monday Night Football game in Week 8, the Chiefs were labeled as 2.5-point favorites over the Green Bay Packers. After the game, the line moved in the Packers’ direction as the game was either labeled as a pick ‘em as a 0.5-point spread in the Chiefs favor.

Now, NFL betting sites have moved the line a significant amount.

Chiefs vs Packers Spread Odds

  • Kansas City Chiefs -7.5 -105
  • Green Bay Packers +7.5 -115

Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for COVID-19 and due to him being unvaccinated, was ruled out of the game against the Chiefs. This means that Jordan Love will be making his first career start as he’s the only healthy quarterback on the team’s roster.

Can Green Bay Win Without Rodgers?

In 2017, Rodgers missed a majority of the season due to an injury and the team didn’t fare too well without him. Green Bay started the season 4-1 with Rodgers starting, then ended the season 3-7 with Brett Hundley as the quarterback.

In 2013, Rodgers missed eight games due to injury and the team went 2-5-1 with a mix of Seneca Wallace, Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn under center. With a combined record of 5-12-1 in the last two instances of Rodgers missing time, it’s unlikely they’ll have too much success this time around, especially against a team like the Chiefs.

Chiefs vs Packers Moneyline Odds

  • Kansas City Chiefs -340
  • Green Bay Packers +270

Of the team’s 12 losses without Rodgers, only three games came within the current 7.5-point spread margin. Rodgers is the MVP for a reason, sports betting sites know that he’s one of the most important players to his team in the league.

The game will begin at 4:25 p.m. EST and will air on FOX.
