Although Aaron Rodgers and company haven’t exactly packed the same punch as in the past, they still have 15/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl. It won’t be long, however, until their sub-.500 record starts to catch up to them on the moneyline.
Against 5-0 Houston, the Packers are listed as four-point dogs. Considering that the Texans are one of just two teams in the entire NFL who haven’t suffered a loss the Sunday showdown could be an interesting affair.
The 2012 season may still be young, but with every game adding up in the big picture, it’s hard not to imagine a scenario unfolding where the Pakcers are on the outside of the NFC playoff picture looking in. With that said, they’ll need to pull out all the stops in their interconference contest this weekend if they hope to avoid falling even further in the standings.
The Texans have 4/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl this season, a mark that tops the entire league on the NFL futures. The Packers, in contrast, sit further at just 15/1.
