There has been some talk as to how long Aaron Rodgers is going to remain as the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers is one of the best players in the league, but with concerns over management and Jordan Love waiting behind him, it might be tough to figure what happens next.
Whatever the case, the Packers will be an appealing choice for NFL betting purposes in 2021 and beyond. This 2020 NFL betting recap shows that the Packers looked impressive throughout the season and that the team has plenty of life ahead of it regardless of who the quarterback will be soon.
The Packers went 13-3 this season and also went 10-6 against the spread. The Packers had the most proficient offense in the NFL, as they had 31.8 points per game. The team also gave up 23.1 points per game, providing the third-largest margin in the league.

The Packers were amazingly efficient, as Rodgers had 48 passing touchdowns versus five interceptions. The team also saw a few rising stars in the receiving corps, with Robert Tonyan, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Allen Lazard joining Davante Adams among the Packers’ stars this season.
The Packers were consistent favorites throughout the season. Some of the Packers’ losses against the spread were in games where the spreads were too lofty. The team’s December victories over the Carolina Panthers and the Detroit Lions had lines of -9.5 each, but the Packers only won those games by a touchdown. Meanwhile, the Packers defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars by four despite a -13.5 line.
The team won against the spread in cases where the spread was within a touchdown. The Packers had a 40-14 victory over the Tennessee Titans in a game with a -3 spread, for example.
The Packers had a 9-7 record on the over/under listing. The team saw most of their games with totals of under 50, but that number kept rising as the season progressed.
It was in some later games when the Packers went under. The team’s 31-24 victory over Detroit came with an over/under of 55.5. The Packers’ 30-16 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles came with an over/under of 50.
The Packers went over the total in both their playoff games, as they entailed teams with some high-powered offenses. The last game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had an over/under of 53.
The Buccaneers won that game 31-26. The Bucs also overcame a +3 line against the Packers to reach the Super Bowl, which they would eventually win two weeks later.
The 2020 NFL betting report on the Green Bay Packers shows how strong the team was and how Aaron Rodgers kept them running.
People expect Rodgers will stay in 2021, but the team does have a good foundation in place for when Jordan Love eventually becomes the team’s new quarterback. The greatest question is whether running back Aaron Jones will return, as he will enter the free agent market.
The Packers hold one of the best lines for winning Super Bowl LVI. The team holds a +1100 mark for winning the Super Bowl. The team is also second to the Kansas City Chiefs surrounding their odds to win their division. The Packers has a -210 line to win the NFC North title. The Minnesota Vikings are the closest to the Packers, as they have a +320 to win.
The Green Bay Packers have a great chance of winning the Super Bowl this coming season. The team will remain powerful regardless of the quarterback situation. How the sportsbooks will view the Packers and how they will set the lines on the team remains something to watch.
