Packers Season Odds

After showing flashes of being a competitive team in 2008, the Green Bay Packers believe that they’re ready to take the next step in 2009.

The Packers didn’t make a lot of noise in free agency this offseason, which has become GM Ted Thompson’s style. Instead of doling out a lot of money to overpriced free agents, Thompson instead chooses to build through the draft. The team did sign free agents Duke Preston (Bills) and Anthony Smith (Steelers), however.

Green Bay did well in the draft, landing defensive tackle B.J Raji with the ninth overall pick and then trading back into the first round to select linebacker Clay Matthews with the 26th overall pick. The Packers believe that Raji and Matthews are great fits for their new 3-4 defensive scheme.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have made the Packers 35/1 long shots to win Super Bowl XLIV. They also gave Green Bay 9/1 odds to win the NFC and 1.7/1 odds to win the NFC North Division.

If you believe that the Packers were better than their 6-10 record indicated last season, then you might be willing to pull the trigger on one of their odds (Super Bowl, Conference and/or Division) in 2009. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers played very well in replacing legend Brett Favre and the Packers return some quality starters in Donald Driver, Greg Jennings and Ryan Grant this season. The key will be whether or not their defense comes together. Green Bay is switching to a 3-4 and there will probably be an adjustment period. If everything comes together nicely, expect the Pack to challenge the Bears and Vikings in the division.
