Betting On The Green Bay Packers To Win The Super Bowl
Betting on the Green Bay Packers to win the Super Bowl is never a bad idea, especially in recent years. As long as Aaron Rodgers is under center for them, you can keep betting on them to be contenders year after year. Aaron Jones showed us what he really is about as he led the league in touchdowns for running backs in 2019. Although he missed four games last year, Davante Adams has been the clear star in the receiving group while the rest of the receivers are starting to progress like Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard.
They had a quiet but beneficial offseason. They were able to sign a deal with Christian Kirksey who is a proven consistent linebacker. As long as he can stay healthy, bettors can expect to see him be an immediate impact on defense. On the offensive side, they have signed another weapon for Aaron Rodgers to throw the ball to in Devin Funchess. As you keep reading below, you will find the chances of the Packers winning the Super Bowl, winning the NFC and winning their division.
Green Bay Packers And COVID-19
The only member of the Green Bay Packers that has opted out of the 2020 season is wide receiver, Devin Funchess. There have also been three players that have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list including kicker Mason Crosby. Those players have since returned but the scare was not over there for the Packers as they dealt with a number of false-positive test results.
As for if fans will be allowed at Packers home games or not, they did not allow any fans at their first two home games and will continue to not allow fans until they see the number of confirmed cases in the Green Bay area improve.
