Green Bay Packers – 2013 NFL Team Preview

Green Bay Packers – 2013 NFL Team Preview

2012-2013 Regular Season: 11-5 SU | 9-7 ATS
2012-2013 Postseason: 1-1 SU | 1-1 ATS

After a shaky 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS start of the season (including the infamous “Fail Mary” loss vs. Seattle Seahawks), the Packers raced to 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS records in their final 11 games to bag the NFC North crown. They couldn’t sustain the momentum in the playoffs though, as their weaknesses were exposed by the eventual NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers in the divisional playoffs.

Re-upping franchise players QB Aaron Rodgers (42 TDs – 2nd in the NFL) and LB Clay Matthews (16 sacks – 4th) last April meant a successful offseason for the Packers. With Rodgers back under center, they are expected to have another potent offense this season similar to their per game averages last year; points (27.1 – 4th), touchdowns (3.3 – 4th), passing completion percentage (67.14% – 3rd) and passing yards (253.1 – 9th).  Rodgers will have one less familiar target though as WR Greg Jennings signed with their rivals, the Vikings in the offseason. Jennings spent his first 8 years in the league with Green Bay.

Green Bay will open the season on the road against the same team that booted them out in the divisional round last year as 4.5 underdogs in Week 1 vs. the 49ers. . The Green Bay Packers are also 2014 Super Bowl favourites with +1000 odds to go all the way.

Key Betting matchups of 2013 NFL Season:

Week 2 vs. Washington Redskins: Packers are 4-1 SU and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. the Redskins, who may or may not have Robert Griffin III back in this game.

Week 10 vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Previous 3 meetings are all in the Packers’ favor: 3-0 SU and 3-0 ATS

Green Bay Packers bettors should pay attention to:

– Jermichael Finley, whose salary is around $8.2M this season after the Packers committed to the tight end last March. Finley was inconsistent the last two years with Green Bay.
