Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

After another impressive defensive performance we can safely assume that this year's Packers defense is a Top 10 unit and that makes the Packers a Top 10 team. The highly competitive NFC lowers their Championship based power ranking but going 2-0 in the division to start the season is about as good as it gets. There are 3 teams who have 12/1, 7.7% odds to win the Super Bowl. They are not a good bet to win the Super Bowl. Their 3.3% chance is #8 in the league. In simulations, they win the NFC 9.2% of the time and are not a good value at 11/2, 15.4%. They are projected to win 10 games and go over their pre-season futures line of 9. Their playoff chances stand at 63.3% (44.6% to win the division). Their average wins per simulation puts them at #3 in the NFC.

They are 2-0 against the spread for a 200 profit. Their under-over record is 2-0. Their 6-9-1 record last season was very disappointing. Their expected win percentage was 57%. They also went 6-9-1 against the spread for a loss (-390 units). They went over 8 times and came in under 8 times. They are heavy favorites in their upcoming game vs the Denver Broncos.
